  • 5 Jacquie Baines 8th Sep 2020

    To Luke and to all who assisted in the funeral of my beloved husband - a great thankyou . The day of the funeral went so very smoothly, as had all that preceded it. So dignified and in perfect timing from start to finish - I received many compliments on your behalf from my family and friends and requests for the name of the company. All your gentlemen were certainly so helpful, friendly and yet unobtrusive. I know David himself would have been very impressed - not so easy to do normally but certainly top marks for a never to be forgotten occasion. Thankyou, from all our family. Jacquie Baines.

    Andrew Bingham replied
    Dear Mrs Baines thank you very much for such lovely comments, it is very much appreciated by all at Andrew Bingham Independent Funeral Service

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.
