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.

Both my sister and I were very happy with the service we got from Chris and everyone at Walkers. It was very reassuring to have a face to face meeting in my home to discuss my Mothers funeral arrangements and all the information we needed. We were pleased with our Mothers funeral as it was exactly what she wanted.
We both would recommend using Walkers to anyone who needed a Funeral Director.

We have had Walkers take great care of two of our brothers funerals in the past 6 years.
When our second brother died in February we instantly knew Walkers were the people who we wanted to look after him on his final journey.
The whole experience made a devastating time more bearable. As a family we would like all the staff to know that their kindness,sensitivity and professionalism at this awful time will always be appreciated and remembered x
Response from Walkers Funeral Directors
We are very proud of our team and the care they give and it means the world when we hear from the families that we have looked after. Your family continues to be in our thoughts and we are honoured to have been able to give you the services you needed.

Everything from start to finish was dealt with very conscientiously by all the Staff at Walker’s at a very difficult time.

Unfortunately it was not the first time we had to use them, and we will be using them in hopefully the distant future.
