  • 4 Jackie Mortlock 22nd Sep 2020

    Murray's were very caring and supportive, especially Becky and Danny, and were clear on what could and could not be done under Covid rules for funerals. Several of the mourners at the funeral commented on what a lovely, caring young man Danny was & were impressed with how he directed the funeral on the day. The family certainly second that. He gently guided us and made us feel that he had everything under control.

  • 5 Amanda Agar 6th Sep 2020

    Murray’s we’re exceptionally helpful when I lost my aunt.  I’d never experienced having to plan a funeral before and felt quite overwhelmed by it all, but the wonderful staff talked me through each step and offered advice and guidance making it very straightforward for me.  They also accompanied me into the viewing room when I felt I could not do it alone, snd the funeral director on the day of the funeral made me feel at ease and talked me through what was happening snd what I needed to do.  They made a difficult time under difficult circumstances so much easier to bear.  I can’t thank thank them enough for their care.

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.
