Fiona Kilfeather 2nd Aug 2020

We will forever be grateful for the guidance, support, and advice given by Maria,Clive and the rest of the Sherlocks team. Nothing was too much trouble. My beloved Mum was always handled with respect and dignity, and we hope she received the funeral she would've wished for. What was probably the worst time in our lives was made bearable by the professionalism and competence of this amazing team, from those that took Mum from our house, to the individuals that cared for her body and dressed her for viewing, to moved her at the funeral..thank you to you all.

    Beautifully organised under difficult circumstances. Numbers of mourners allowed changed from week to week, not Sherlock’s fault. Opening entrance music went on too long but that might have been RP’s fault. Apart from that excellent.

  • 5 Martin Diserens 8th Jul 2020

    We couldn't have been happier with the service we received from Sherlock's and would be delighted to recommend them. Maria was considerate and attentive in all our dealings, for which the family and I are very grateful.

  • 5 Richard Battye 7th Jul 2020

    At what was a very difficult time for myself and family, as indeed bereavement is for many people, Clive, his staff and Rev Thrower provided all of the required help, advice, comfort and sympathy. The organisation for my wife's cremation was faultless and fully met our wishes. Our family and very many friends who were unable to attend the celebration of her life have commented on the excellence of the service and joy of 'feeling' to be present, albeit on-line.

  • 5 Chris Yeomans 6th Jul 2020

    In these difficult Covid times they were brilliant and very very good. Highly recommend them.

  • 5 Sue Conway 22nd Jun 2020

    I can’t thank Sherlock, Clive Maria and all of the team enough for the excellent professional service I have received. Right from the first contact with them when my mother passed. They have all been so compassionate and understanding towards me and my family.  My family have always used Sherlock. For unfortunately many family funerals. First class always.  I will continue to highly recommend this company.  Once again sincere thanks to Clive and all the wonderful people that work for this amazing company.  Many thanks Sue Conway 

  • 5 Hillary Rennie 9th Jun 2020

    A very professional and compassionate service when removing his body from home and then again when arranging the funeral. on the morning of the funeral a very moving and wonderful gesture of leading the cortege on foot to the end of the road. Thank you.

  • 5 Jeff Smith 25th May 2020

  • 5 Karen Dunn 21st May 2020

  • 5 Colleague from Barnet 18th Apr 2020

    100 out of 10 is still not enough. The service we received from the very first telephone call, to the wave goodbye at the crematorium, was outstanding. We cannot thank Clive and his team enough.  The sensitivity, understanding and guidance required was dealt with in the most respectful manner.  You couldn’t ask for more at the most devastating time in your life xx

  • 5 Douglas Grant 6th Apr 2020

    Thank you for making the whole event as easy and joyous as was possible. You went above and beyond with your planning, which enabled us to have a motorbike escort that was so moving and exactly how Mark would have wanted it. I coulndn't recommend Clive and co more highly.

  • 5 Linda Brownell 29th Oct 2019

    This is the second time we have used Sherlocks in the past year. The staff were always calm, sensitive and considerate. They gave us time to sort out our thoughts and wishes and everything was handled just as we wanted. We would highly recommend their services and thank them for their kindness and support during these difficult ordeals.

  • 5 Tracy Davis 1st Jul 2019

    This has been the 3rd time I have used Sherlock's for both my parents and my mother in law. Each time they have show compassion with the necessary questions needing to be asked to arrange a funeral. This time I also appreciated the online obituary page which was new to me this time. I also used them for the first time to arrange order of service. There swift turnaround for amendments and the polite way they showed "nothing was too much trouble" was greatly appreciated.

  • 5 Luke Margetts 21st Jun 2019

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.
