Lovely professional people, helped us get through a difficult time. Always at hand for queries or requests. Made everything very seemless and easy. Would definitely recommend.

Mrs Dianne Uttley 10th Sep 2019

At a very difficult time Andrew and his team were excellent,  supportive and at the end of a phone whatever time of day to offer advice and understanding. 

Richard Stansfield 2nd Sep 2019

Andrew and everyone at Andrew Bingham guided us kindly and sensitively through the process of organising my Mum's funeral, were always on hand to answer any questions we had, presented her beautifully for members of the family who wanted to view the body, and ensured the funeral itself ran smoothly and ensured it was the send off she would have appreciated.

I explained what the budget was and that I could not exceed and Andrew went out of his way to cater for that, he listened and made me feel like i was the most important person in the room.

I would recommend anyone that needs help at one of the hardest times of your life to use Andrew, he is a very helpful & humble man who really made the funeral arrangements very easy.

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.
