    My family have used Warren and his team three times in recent years. Very professional yet very personal at the same time. I highly recommend Parkinsons and wouldn’t consider using anyone else.

  • 5 Patricia Day 6th Feb 2019

    Warren and his team provided an exceptional service, nothing was too much trouble. From the very beginning our Dad was treated with great care and respect which provided reassurance and comfort to our mum.  The team were friendly, informative, never pushy and always on hand to guide us through the planning process under difficult circumstances. We would definitely recommend J Parkinson & Sons funeral services.  Thank you to all your team particularly Warren Tyler not only for taking care of our Dad but for taking care of us too.  Forever grateful 

  • 5 Annette York 22nd Jan 2019

    I would recommend J Parkinson and sons to anyone, we were treated with the utmost respect and all our wishes were fulfilled. Mums funeral service by them was of the highest standard.

  • 5 Susan Dodd 24th Dec 2018

    From start to finish nothing was too much trouble. The added bonus of having a Facebook page for people to leave messages about your departed really helps with the grieving process.  The time they put into making your loved ones day special is second to none.  Could not fault them.  Would use again but hopefully not too soon xx

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.
