Jonathan Mitchell 28th Jan 2020

The attention to detail, compassion, professionalism and respect shown by everyone at Eric Box, before, during and after the ceremony were absolutely wonderful. We always felt in control and Edward (who was our chief contact throughout) was adaptable, flexible and - at a time of great personal anguish - approachable. I cannot recommend highly enough - we felt the most important people in the world. Also, great to see that a funeral director has a good sense of humour, which Edward used to make Mum in particular feel very comfortable. Thank you so much for everything you did to give our Dad a brilliant send-off.

    Really brilliant service, very understanding and compassionate from the first time we met which makes a massive difference.

  • 5 Julie Rishworth 19th Jan 2020

    Edward Box and his staff did a wonderful job arranging my mums funeral and especially went above and beyond considering we live overseas and there’s a time difference. He was very attentive to our needs and listened carefully so my mums wishes were followed. He made himself available at any time and communicated all the details by phone and email to make things go smoothly. We were so happy that the service went so well and everything happened just as Edward said it would. During a time when it’s sometimes difficult to make decisions and final arrangements he helped us through everything and no detail was missed. 

  • 5 Emily Feigel 10th Jan 2020

    Amazing! We had a quick turnaround and Edward was phenomenal in getting it all completed in time.

  • 5 Rosalind Price 30th Dec 2019

    We have been incredibly pleased with the services that Box has arranged for both my mother and my father. They listened to what we wanted and provided dignified and meaningful funeral services. I highly recommend them.

  • 5 Hazel Makwabarara 24th Sep 2019

    Edward and the family was very accommodating and showed our family so much empathy when we were going through the worst times of our life. They took the time to speak to us and explained everything to make sure it was all clear and planned well. Thank you so much.

  • 5 Melanie Stevens 17th Sep 2019

    Andrew and co were amazing start to finish. Me and my family received such phenomenal support which made a tough process more manageable. I definitely would use them and recommend them to anyone.

  • 5 Misty Bannerman 24th Jul 2019

    Although a review to write abiut the arrangements for a funeral for a your husband is so difficult, however I must continue. To have the kind of reassurance of a professional and caring team woul be the usual. ..my experience was beyond the usual. Without rhe continuous personal and I feel a genuine care and support, I do not feel I would have felt assured in myself, that my husband was given the service that I truly wanted for him. Everyone went above and beyond in assuring and supporting myself and family, right from the very first phone call throughout this difficult time. Special gratitude to Andrew and thank you so much to everyone Thank you

  • 5 Margaret Watson 14th Jul 2019

    The service we received was excellent. Everyone involved were very caring. Nothing too much trouble. It was a sensitive and caring service provided to all our family at a very painful time. We had the funeral service in the beautiful chapel and refreshments also served on the premises in a lovely room, all set out for us. All those attending expressed their satisfaction with how everything went so smoothly. We all look back on that day with warmth and in many ways with feelings of joy and thankfulness that our last farewell to our beloved aunt had been what she would have wanted.Thank you to everyone concerned for helping make this a memorable occasions for all of us.

    These funeral directors are first class, from the first phone call ( on a Sunday ) through to the funeral itself. Their fleet of vehicles is excellent as are all the personnel. First class service and advice from beginning to end. Thank You, it made a sad and difficult time a lot easier.

  • 5 Adam Hussain 2nd Mar 2019

    I would like to express my gratitude for Eric F.Box Funeral Directors support, respect and patience on the day. Thank you for your excellent work.

  • 5 Adrian Summerscales 1st Mar 2019

    As a family and for myself I think it would be impossible to pick a better, more friendly or professional service than that provided by Eric F. Box. They have been extremely courteous, sympathetic and understanding and above all very patient and kind towards my bereft father. The whole team were extremely professional and helpful on the day of the funeral and things couldn't have gone more smoothly whilst their pre-funeral arrangements were spot on. I would like to thank Edward Box in particular for being so " brilliant "...no other word to describe him ! Thank you for everything.

  • 5 Lyn Goodwin 9th Feb 2019

    Obviously this is not a service you generally require very often, and as such, you have no expertise and rely very very heavily on the experience and service the Funeral Director provides. Well, my late mothers funeral was provided by Eric Box Funeral services. Andrew dealt with me on behalf of my mother. Andrew is the consummate professional. However, having said that, I realise that it was a team effort by Eric Box as a company and I can not think of one instance or item that could have been any better....everything  was done to the highest degree with the greatest dignity. I have dealt with many people and many organisations during my 50 years working life, Eric Box's sits well and truly at the top.

  • 5 Claire Shannon 8th Feb 2019

    It's never an easy thing to do; planning a funeral and going through all of the many details involved, but Edward and his team were so wonderful throughout. Supportive and professional every step of the way. We were so thankful for their assistance and informative responses. They looked after us, ensured that everything was just as we wanted it to be and made things that little bit easier and a lot less stressful. Thank you all so much for everything you did for us. It was hard to make those decisions, but we knew from the start that we were in safe hands and we were so glad to have Edward and the rest of the team at our sides throughout the process.

    Excellent and professional service while keeping the human touch

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.
