Natural burial is becoming increasingly popular, but can often be more expensive than burial in a traditional cemetery. The cost of coffins, flowers, catering and transport also varies a lot.

Mr Walker delivered a fantastic service for my dad’s funeral. He was very interested to hear of my father’s life and listened to the service and eulogies. He put us in touch with a lovely lady to deliver the eulogy. He also organised live streaming for my niece who lives in Qatar. I would have no hesitation in recommending his services.
