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

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.

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.

    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

  • 4 Sarah Lamb 4th Apr 2020

    Excellent and compassionate  service all around but sadly the details of how people could leave their donations were not pur in the paper with her death announcement - we presumed that it would be there and now sadly no monies have been collected for her. Sarah Lamb

    James Pargetter replied
    Dear Mrs Lamb Thank you for your comments. Whilst the link to your mother’s obituary page was placed in the notice where the donations can be sent it was an oversight on my behalf to not clearly inform people that donations can be made there. If you would like to make contact with our office we can look at rewording your notice and placing it again for you so that some monies can be collected for Myton Hospice. Sorry for any inconvenience. Best Regards James

    We were pleased with the way the funeral went, everything happened as it should, and all meetings with James went smoothly. Would recommend them.

  • 5 Elizabeth Foster 26th Dec 2019

    Excellent service from the initial visit to discuss and organise the funeral for my husband to the actual funeral. They were professional, respectful and kept me well informed on what was happening and answering any queries I had. On the day of the funeral everything went smoothly and exactly as I had hoped for, on what was obviously a very emotional day.

  • 5 Christopher Watts 3rd Dec 2019

    Thank You so much to the entire team. The requirements were to a very tight schedule. These are MOT'S: Moments Of Truth. When everything has the potential to go wrong and the effort and dedication paid off and W&T delivered.

  • 5 Sharon Smart 29th Nov 2019

    James, Sue and the rest of the team at Walton & Taylor were extremely helpful, informative and happy to accommodate all our requests for my father’s service (from the piper to the tartan rug to the extra photos in the order of service). Their attention to detail and regular communication with us during the planning period was great and the service itself went exactly as we had wanted – a truly uplifting celebration of my dad’s life, which he would have loved. When you have never organised a funeral before, it can be a very daunting prospect at a time of great emotion. Walton & Taylor guided us sensitively through the process and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone else coping with a bereavement.

  • 5 Peter Swann 19th Nov 2019

    Incredibly professional, sensitive and accommodating to all our needs and requirements. I was overwhelmed with their attention to detail and ensuring the funeral was exactly as planned. I would certainly recommend them to anybody who needs their services.

  • 5 Peter Garlick 19th Nov 2019

    The family were completely happy with the arrangements prior to Mother's funeral and the conduct on the day itself

  • 5 Linda Paxton 9th Nov 2019

    They carried out what they said they would, and everything with dignity

  • 5 John Geraghty 25th Oct 2019

  • 5 David Lewis 14th Oct 2019

  • 5 Angela Fellowes 17th Aug 2019

    Very kind and helpful staff. Very professional service all carried out with great dignity  Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. 

  • 5 Kerry Cheridjian 9th Aug 2019

    James was able to organise white cars for my Mum’s funeral to meet her wishes, and also arrange for the wicker coffin to be sprayed white. He also liaised with the venue for the wake and the church and crematorium  to ensure we were able to have exactly what we wanted for the day. They helped us truly celebrate my Mum’s life in a way she would have loved. 

  • 4 Andrew Gibbs 26th May 2019

    After an initial couple of blips with the order of service the firm was very good. The day itself was organised immaculately and could not have gone better

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.
