    Excellent service at our most difficult and needy time. Great value and high end service. Would always recommend when services like these are needed.

  • 4 Barbara Fenn 22nd Jun 2020

    The only criticism I have is that Pearce did not tell me when they had collected the body and that it was in their care. The date of collection was quite a few days after we had heard from the coroner.

  • 5 Kelly Trueman 20th Jun 2020

    At one of the most difficult times of your life Pearce funeral services helped so much by always being at the end of the phone answering all my questions, guiding me when I didn’t know what I was doing and just offering their support.  I would highly recommend their services to anyone who has just lost a loved one. 

  • 5 Kelly Cutting 5th Jun 2020

    Considering the circumstances at the moment, we found  their service to be excellent. 

  • 5 Rev. Mark Tidey 1st Jun 2020

    As always, John and his team put a great deal of care and attention into supporting families through such a difficult time

  • 5 Maitu Limbu 31st May 2020

    Nepalese Community in Swindon have used Pearce Funeral Services numerous times when our members have passed away in the past; most recent being Late Kabirman Rai.  Our main point of contact has mostly been Belinda, who has an in-depth knowledge on Gurkha traditions and norms, and requirements in arranging a Gurkha (Nepalese) funeral. The wonderful service by all the staff is a testament of their professionalism.  Belinda’s compassion, attention to detail, warmth in her friendliness and her very kind and helpful nature has captured us all. First rate service! Cannot thank or praise you enough.  Maita Limbu

  • 5 John Gribble 24th May 2020

  • 5 Yvonne Bowden 23rd May 2020

    I would like to thank all at Pearces Funeral, a big thank you to Belinda who has made such an awful time a little easier for myself and my family. All at Pearces do an amazing job in such difficult circumstances. 

  • 5 Jerry Winfield 10th May 2020

    I had to arrange the removal and cremation of my father in law due to the virus. Pearce's could not have been more accommodating and helpful, keeping me informed of everything along the way. They made it very easy for my family. Thank you.

  • 5 Laurie Laing 1st May 2020

    They were amazing from start to finish .  Belinda was amazing from the early hours that I rang  when our mum passed away to the very end on the funeral day  please pass on the family’s thanks to her . We have used pearces funerals  since my partners mother and brother  passed away and have never been disappointed 

  • 5 Joanne Scanlon 30th Apr 2020

    Belinda was so helpful all the way through, she guided us on what is an unusual time for funerals (in lockdown) and made sure we were still able to make it special. Nothing was too much trouble and we could phone at any time to talk anything through. They were also great on the day and again very supportive.

  • 5 Pauline Edmondson 7th Apr 2020

    I cannot thank John and his team for such loving care of my late step dad neil. Such lovely people. All the staff gave my family 100% of their time. Nothing was to much trouble. A very personal approach. I have had to arrange several funerals in the past and used other funeral services. They are not a patch on Pearce Funeral Services. I cannot thank John and his fabulous team enough. When i go (hopefully not yet) I want John and his team to look after me. Professionalism to the highest.

  • 5 Steve Lydon 17th Mar 2020

    My first contact was with Belinda McCormick.   Belinda was caring and professional throughout. Belinda exceeded my expectations and was a real support for me and the rest of the family at this difficult time. Belinda directed the funeral on the  day and was the upmost professional and caring. I highly recommend Pearce Funeral Services.  I also would like to say that Belinda is a tremendous asset to the business  StephenLydon

    I used Pearce Funeral Services when my Dad passed away and was very impressed with their professionalism nothing was to much which is the reason I have now used them for my Mums funeral and once again a excellent job was done so I would have no problem to advise people to use them.

  • 5 Kenneth Kirkman 15th Feb 2020

    Pearces gave us confidence that we were in good hands. They were friendly sympathetic and reassuring Nothing was too much trouble and they provided a first class professional service.

  • 5 Jenny Stacey 14th Feb 2020

    Belinda has been brilliant made everything run smoothly and efficiently. Our sincere thanks Jenny Stacey The Open Door Centre.

  • 5 Hayriye Mazzotta 28th Jan 2020

    Pearce funeral services were amazing. The support we received from Belinda and John throughout the whole process from the initial call right through to the day was incredible and overwhelming. As you can imagine organising funerals isn't an every day thing but I know that if Nan was here right now she would be proud of the send off that she did have and that is all down to Pearce. Belinda was also very helpful and informative when it came to letting us know about funding help which no other provider informed us about and they are very personal, empathetic and don't treat the funeral arrangements as another transaction which is much better than any other corporate funeral company. We would highly recommend Pearce Funeral to anyone!

  • 5 Pam Humphris 17th Jan 2020

    Pearce Funeral Services are excellent. Extremely professional but also very understanding,  caring, considerate and helpful. The help we received from day one up until the funeral itself was perfect. We cannot thank them enough. 

  • 5 Jean White 29th Oct 2019

    Hi John Was just going to send you an email when I saw this in my inbox. Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the services you have provided myself and my family in respect of Dad. Nothing was too much trouble for you although you were always professional at all times you provided a service that was unique and individual to each one of us. It did not feel at any time that we were dealing with a company who just ticked all the appropriate boxes. You had each one of us at heart and adapted everything to our needs. I cannot  thank you enough. Dad had an excellent service and send off that brought out his character which was what we wanted. We have had excellent feedback from family and friends. Your personal service really stands out John please send our thanks to everyone within Pearce Funeral Services team. I know that Mum and Teresa will be coming in to see you later to settle up the financial side of things. Mum is already saying that she wants to take out funeral plan with you and we will arrange that later when she feels a bit stronger to tackle that. Thanks again Tina

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.
