I highly recommend Andrew Bingham Funeral Services as the care and professionalism they showed towards my mum whilst in their care and the compassion and guidance towards me was exceptional.

Michael Pemberton 11th Mar 2018

We would like to say a huge thank you to you and your team for the guidance and expertise you showed us from first entering your office to the completion of the funeral. Everything was explained fully in a compassionate way, and on the day you and your staff were exceptional in very cold conditions, your patience didn't go unnoticed. Once again a huge thanks. Debbie and Mike Pemberton.

Sarah Harvey 12th Feb 2018

We would highly recommend them, very professional, respectful and supportive at such a difficult time.

    Andrew and his team were so supportive and professional in their approach. Everything was clearly explained and the day went well despite poor weather to start with. Nothing was too much and we all worked well to achieve as the family wanted. Thank you.

  • 5 Richard Beales 19th Dec 2017

    Andrew and his team ensured that all the arrangements were in place prior to the day and, on the day, discreetly made sure that the funeral and thanksgiving service all went smoothly. Everyone involved was courteous and dignified. Many thanks

  • 5 Fiona Ferrie 4th Dec 2017

    Andrew and his staff were so caring and sympathetic at this most difficult time. A very professional service provided throughout. Available at all times for advice on any matter. Can't thank him enough for the way everything was dealt with in an appropriate and proper way. With many thanks from the family of Jane (Jean) Bryson

  • 5 Linde Gulliford 1st Dec 2017

    We could not have wished for a more efficient, yet gentle and compassionate team arranging mother's funeral. Everything was done for us and where necessary, were guided to people who could help. The day went incredibly smoothly and we were unobtrusively ushered through the proceedings at both the Crematorium and Church. I would not hesitate to recommend Andrew Bingham: one could not wish for a more dedicated and professional team to help one through what is a very sad and traumatic time. Thank you all for making the day easier than it might have been x

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.
