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.

    They were professional, compassionate and easy to talk to.  Everything was made so easy at such a difficult and emotional time, I can’t thank them enough.

  • 5 Carol Craft 30th Jul 2018

    The support from Angela and, of course, Sally was incredibly kind, understanding and did not complain at all, when I changed my mind countless times. Then the support from Clive was exceptional, in the Church and also at the Graveside. That is the kind of support one hopes one gets in any situation.

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.
