Murrays are wonderful. A warm and friendly privately owned family business with the personal touch you so desperately need at times like this. Exemplary service. Highly recommend.

Carol Bentley 25th May 2021

They couldn’t do enough for us . My mum was given a dignified service which was wonderful for her family after she had dementia and lived in a care home for 8 year’s. A fitting end for the lady she was. 

Carmel O'Brien 25th May 2021

The team at Murray's Swadlincote, were so thoughtful and kind at what was such a difficult time. They were extremely professional, nothing was too much to ask and at all times we felt they cared, special thanks to Barry and Joan. An excellent service which I highly recommend

  • 5 Jade Cartwright 29th Mar 2021

    Thank you for everything you have done. 

  • 4 Trish Devine 28th Mar 2021

    Just a couple of minor comments: - We only became aware that a double slot at the crematorium was available (on a later day) when speaking to Sharon (Celebrant) about what content we wanted in the service. This may have been nice to be offered this at the very start to avoid any confusion.  - Stuart and Grant had to remind the coffin bearers upon entry to Carnarvon Chapel that it was their wish to walk behind the coffin during the entrance music. This information had obviously not been passed on during planning. Other than the above, our experience with Murray’s was once again very positive, on the whole.  Thank you.

    We cannot thank Murray’s enough for their support following the loss of our dear Mum. 

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.
