    Thank you very much Murray's. You were all very helpful, calm and sensitive dealing with our Mothers funeral at a particularly difficult time during lock down. We really did appreciate it. Thank you.

  • 4 Emma Painter 23rd Jun 2020

    From start to finish I felt I was in safe hands. The team (Rebecca and Barry) could t have been more helpful. The service went exactly as we had wished for. I have no hesitation in recommending Murray’s 

  • 5 Roberta Gregory 16th Jun 2020

    On ringing to enquire about a funeral, the young man, Daniel Barke, could not have been more helpful, gentle and empathetic.  Unlike the previous funeral directors that I had rung, who were the direct opposite. Daniel, 'Danny', continued in this vein throughout all our discussions and meetings, nothing appeared too much trouble for him to do for myself.   Danny was very caring, respectful, empathetic and professional at all times.   He made Snowie (our cat) and myself very welcome when we visited my husband on six occasions and, ensured I was not in tears for the drive home. Also, all the staff that I spoke to on the telephone or in person, appeared professional, helpful and caring. I would be more than happy to recommend them to anyone in the future. THANK YOU SO, SO VERY MUCH DANNY, for making an absolutely devastating time for myself as good as it good be. Roberta Gregory (16-5-2020).

  • 4 Clare Parritt 25th May 2020

    Hello, we were very pleased with the funeral overall. The staff were helpful and the arrangements were handled sensitively. One very minor disappointment was that we requested 3 verses of our chosen hymn, but only one was played at the actual service. Otherwise, everything was very good.

    Having a funeral during lockdown is a very unreal experience. Murray’s did everything they could to make us feel as comfortable as possible under the circumstances. I can not thank them enough. Angela and the team were wonderful. Thank You Christine 

  • 5 DIANE LIPP 17th May 2020

    I can't thank Murray's enough. Nothing was too much trouble, they made everything easy at such a sad time. Megan was fantastic and a credit to Murray's. I had to make all of the decisions for my mum and she was so pleased that I picked Murray's and couldn't have been happier. I can't fault them at all and would definitely recommend them to anybody. Thank you so much.

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.
