    Sally, Clive and their team have been wonderful. They always go the extra mile to make everything perfect. They ‘held our hands’ from the first contact and nothing was too much trouble.

  • 5 Simon Reed 25th Oct 2020

    All arrangements were discussed and organised with great empathy for the family and it was reassuring to have such professional and kindly knowledge to guide us through all the options. Funeral Director, Clive Cappelman, was of great assistance in ensuring that my father's wishes were accommodated into the arrangements and ensuring that the funeral took place with smooth efficiency, meaning the minimum of upset to all attending. Celebrant, Graham conducted the service of celebration with a grace and empathy that was appreciated by all. Sherlock and Sons have been very accommodating and could not have been more supportive and helpful in ensuring that the family wishes were carried out. We feel that Dad's farewell was accomplished with the great respect and dignity the he would have wanted, and one that allowed the family to say goodbye in their own way. All this was well managed in awkward Covid circumstances and was much appreciated by the family.

  • 5 Doug Richardson 26th Sep 2020

    Sherlocks Funeral Services were considerate and helpful in every possible way giving us peace of mind as we said farewell to our loved one

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.
