Treated my Mum with dignity and compassion exactly how she would have wanted. Delivered an excellent service which exceeded our expectations, would highly recommend and thank you for including the order of service prints with the price. Others wanted to charge extra

Jodie Robinson 23rd Aug 2021

As a family we could not be more thankful to Ben. The support and kindness shown to our family cannot be thanked in words. I would highly recommend Simpson and Wilde to anyone who has lost their loved ones. They could not be in more safe and loving hands. 

Nicola Copeland 20th Aug 2021

I approached Simpson & Wilde Funeral Directors after recently losing my Mother. Having never organised a funeral, Ben explained all aspects of the funeral and kept me up to date with all of the details putting my mind at ease. Ben treated us with upmost respect and kindness with nothing being too much trouble. Ben was extremely understanding with our wishes for Mum whilst in the Chapel of Rest. It was comforting to know that Mum was being well looked after. The service was conducted by Kate Moran and although it was a saddening time for us all Kate delivered a beautiful and memorable service with a touch of humour which is just how Mum would have wanted it. I cannot thank Ben and the rest of the staff enough for everything that they did. Nicola & Family

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.
