Warren and the team at Parkinsons were phenomenal at every turn. From my first phone call to their offices, to collecting my dad's ashes, our family were treated with respect and good humour throughout our most difficult time. The celebrant arranged by Parkinsons was fabulous and we couldn't have asked for a smoother, more beautiful service. I cannot fully express the level of gratitude our family feel towards the entire team at Parkinsons and we will never forget the kindness we were afforded by them.

    Excellent service, very professional and compassionate throughout 

  • 5 Mirielle Chafer 13th Jul 2017

    Warren and all the staff at Parkinsons provided an excellent,professional but most of all a caring compassionate service. All my family have used Parkinsons funeral services for years,Don a previous director of the company now retired attended my father's funeral. They did everything I requested and nothing was too much trouble. They opened the chapel of rest out of hours so myself and other family members could spend as much time as we could with our beloved cherished father. They say nothing is perfect but where Parkinsons are concerned perfect is the word me and my family describe them.

  • 5 Diane Shakleton 6th Dec 2016

    I received exceptional service from Warren and all his staff. I didn't have to worry about anything; he took care of everything and kept me updated all the time, but most of all he was very caring and thoughtful. Cant thank you all enough.

  • 4 Joe Rodgers 9th Aug 2016

    J Parkinson & Sons were fantastic throughout the entire process, being both caring and professional. Warren in particular who handled most of the direct contact with my family was excellent. The only issue which occurred was one set of flowers not being ordered due to a clerical mix up, but we understand accidents happen, and no attempt was made by Warren to dismiss the issue or make excuses, the mistake was owned and rectified as far as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
