Andrew and his team were very helpful, respectful and caring during the organisation of my father's funeral. It's a pleasure to deal with a local family business that charge a realistic price for a great service. Thankyou.

Jill Smith 2nd Apr 2021

We have been very pleased and relieved how Andrew Bingham services have helped us as a family organising and setting up a lovely obituary for Roger.  Would recommend them to anyone needing a caring and helpful and very organised when arranging a funeral. 

Vanessa Clark 2nd Apr 2021

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.
