I can’t recommend Durrant Funeral directors enough , Neil and Tracey went above and beyond for my dads funeral. The care and compassion shown to us as a family was amazing also to my father . My dad didn’t want a church service just a graveside burial, I have to say it was made so special , they guided me to make it a really beautiful personal tribute to my dad . The celebrant they put me in touch with was a lovely lady also. They really do care and it felt a very personal service from them with lovely extras I did not expect. Like the handmade hearts that were given to me at the chapel of rest so I could leave one with my dad and I kept one , also supplying a beautiful cross with a plaque on to mark my dads grave . They really are wonderful people , they helped make a very painful time of my life a little easier .

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.
