Debbie Ward 22nd May 2020

Tim & his family made dads final journey perfect. It was truly magical. Everyone  commented on the professionalism throughout.  They were so genuinely caring. Looking after mum and I from start to finish. Even in the COVID pandemic meaning limited numbers were allowed at dads funeral it never once felt like it made a difference to the outstanding service we received. I knew when I picked Tim it was the best decision. Dad was in the best care possible.  Nothing was too much trouble and we cannot thank Tim and his family enough. We will always be externally grateful for helping us turn the most heartbreaking time of our life’s into a perfect tribute & celebration of dads life.  Thank you Tim from the bottom of our hearts 💙

  • 5 Janette Wakenshaw 2nd Nov 2019

    At times of sorrow you need someone who you can trust. Someone who understands how you are feeling and not only takes care of the passing of your loved one but their family too. We always felt that our needs were very important and that nothing was too much trouble. No matter how many times we added things or changed our minds, Timothy and his staff, always work hard to make sure everything was just what we wanted and that everything went seamlessly on the day. All who were involved in our Mother's passing or attended her funeral, were very moved by the care, compassion and dignity that was shown to her and we her family, felt safe, secure and cared for every step of the way. Tim became like a trusted friend and we are all very grateful to him for seeing us through this difficult time. We laugh and cried with this remarkable young man, who's attention to detail was always so important and who was always immaculately dressed whenever we called in to see him. We do think it is a shame that it is only when you have lost a loved one that you get the privilege of meeting him! We wish him and his family every success in business and in life. Thank you so much from all of Noreen Ash's family and friends.

    Timothy Parry replied
    Thank you so much Janette, you are such a wonderful family and did mum so proud. Please do pop by for a drink and chat if you feel like it or attend one of our bereavement groups on the last Wednesday of every month. You all remain in my thoughts.

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.
