Walton and Taylor have been a wonderful company to deal with, from start to finish they were so helpful, and nothing was too much trouble for them. Everything was handled with respect and sensitivity. They have done two family funerals for me now, and I could not be happier with them. I would recommend them to anyone!!!

Mick Graham 1st Feb 2021

Excellent service, nothing was too much trouble.

Paul Harris 1st Feb 2021

We have now entrusted Walton and Taylor to take care of two family funerals. On both occasions, from the initial contact, through to the cremation, the funerals were organised and conducted with the utmost care and sensitivity. Every detail was attended to, nothing was too much trouble and it was comforting to have our wishes fulfilled precisely.

  • 5 Anne &Tony Poll 3rd Nov 2020

    From first contact, we experienced compassion, patience, understanding and first class customer service. Every detail was attended to, every question answered quickly. Nothing was too much trouble. On Dad's funeral day, everything went perfectly smoothly due to the professionalism shown by the team at Walton & Taylor. The gentlemen looked so smart and were quietly respectful, unintrusive, but there when we needed them. As a whole family, we can't thank James and the team enough for their support. Knowing Dad was in safe hands was a comfort to us all.

  • 5 Caroline Oldham 24th Aug 2020

    From our initial enquiry, to the end of the funeral itself, James and the team were so compassionate, helpful and patient with me in arranging dads funeral. We used them for my beloved mums funeral too, 5 years ago, and we received the same high level of service then too. They set the tone just right always. Would thoroughly recommend. 

  • 5 David Roome 17th Aug 2020

    James and his team provided an excellent and professional service. 

  • 5 Richard Coleman 3rd Aug 2020

    James and his team did a superb job throughout.  I had personally never organised a funeral before,  Walton & Taylor helped me navigate the whole process, which was made ever more complicated by COVID-19.  I cannot thank them enough for their help and professionalism. 

  • 5 Wendy Deaves 23rd Jul 2020

    Sensitive support in a difficult time. Always respectful and helpful with their suggestions for what to do. Speedy response on a Sunday to the initial call. 

  • 5 Fiona Russell 10th Jul 2020

    Walton & Taylor organised my dear mother’s funeral and the service we received was absolutely impeccable.  We can’t put into words how professional, caring and understanding they are.  Everything we asked for was honoured without question.  A very difficult time made so much easier without stress or upset.  A superb service that could not be beaten.  James is just perfect for this job. He makes you feel totally relaxed while organising what you want and only advises if you require any. No pressure what so ever.  The service was just amazing. Everything you could ever require from a funeral.  Thank you so much Walton & Taylor.  All the best for the future.  Mark & Fiona Russell

  • 5 Nigel Polton 7th Jul 2020

    Considering the Covid-19 restrictions, the funeral arrangements were well organised and considerate to the bereaved relatives. A special thanks to Sue and James

  • 5 George Ridley 13th Jun 2020

    The arrangements were very satisfactory so far as participants at the crematorium were concerned, therefore I've scored the Undertakers services as excellent. Unfortunately, the videocam was not so perfect, as several users have commented that the speakers (i.e. myself and the Minister, Rev Jane Gaffney) were barely audible. Whilst this did not detract from the value of the service at the time, the problem has left a sense of disappointment, in view of the prospect not being fulfilled. There was some variation depending upon the means of reception, but in general it was rather poor.

  • 4 Susan Jones 16th Apr 2020

    As no-one was able to travel to the funeral, we are unable to review the actual ceremony. But the staff are very kind and helpful on the phone.

  • 5 Wanda Paulie 5th Apr 2020

    They done the best they could with all the restrictions placed on them due to the Coroner Virus it's something we've never had to deal with before & hopefully never have to again

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.
