Richard Brothwell 22nd Aug 2021

Extremely caring personal service which I cannot fault in any way. 

Diane Hands 18th Aug 2021

At a very distressing time for the family, we found Andrew Bingham and all the staff both comforting, compassionate and respectful of all the aspects of dealing with our loved ones funeral. The service was dedicated to our loved one, a true dedication of his life was portrayed as if they had known him personally. I can only thank Andrew and Beverley (the celebrant) and all the staff for giving so much dignity to our Partner, Dad, Stepdad and Grandad. Thank you once again it was so very much appreciated.

    Andrew did my father's funeral in September 2013 and my mother and I could not have been more pleased with his services. My mother therefore requested that Andrew should do her funeral when the time came, which of course he did very recently. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff and they all made a difficult time easier for myself and the family for which we give them our grateful thanks. We would have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone.

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.
