Frequently asked questions
When someone dies, the first steps will depend on how and where the person passed away. Our step-by-step guides will walk you through the practical steps. For additional support and personal advice, please get in touch with us.
You don't have to make an appointment at our funeral homes. However, doing so will ensure that someone can be available to cater to your needs. When arranging a funeral, our Funeral Directors are happy to visit you in your own home, if required.
Third party funeral costs are additional charges which we will manage for you and attach to your single invoice. Get in touch with us to confirm costs and plan a funeral to fit your budget.
If you choose to arrange the funeral with us, you will be given the option of a complimentary Funeral Notice. We will set it up for you using the details discussed during the arrangements. All we need is an email address.
Dignity Funeral Plans let you pay for your funeral in advance and at today's price. It's a way of taking control of the unexpected, setting out the arrangements and limiting the costs by paying for the services included in the funeral plan upfront.
Reviews of our services
The communication was excellent, keeping us updated at all times and there was always someone available to answer any queries.
We mainly dealt with Margaret, David and Josh all a credit to the business.
Many thanks for everything that was done for us to make a difficult time as smooth as possible.
Although my late aunt had a funeral plan inplace it was nice to sit down and talk the plan through with Magaret.
She explained fully what the plan entailed and helped me decide on the extra services on offer, such as flowers,order of service stationary etc. All of which my requests were carried out to the letter.
I would like to add my thanks and gratitude to all the team for making such an emotional time in my life a more bearable experience.
Thank you from all our family.
We had a face to face meeting with Helen Waller, who then kept us fully informed of all details by phone and email. It was Helen who put us in touch with the celebrant Nicola Burgess, who provided an excellent service for us, which was a great comfort to all on the day.
Helen went to a lot of trouble to get the music we wanted.
I couldn’t recommend them enough, they took the stress and worry out of a awful time.
Thankyou so much again for all your support
