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
We saw Jo, she was lovely. She helped us with everything. She even helped us with a perfect song choice.
On the day of the Funeral we were met by David and his team who were all really nice. David is the perfect man for that job. He talked us through everything. He is a true Gentleman and I never got to thank him.
Sara took the time to get to know my Mother. She did a lovely service for us. I had many nice comments about Sara.
I could not have found a better Funeral Director. I would highly recommend Chas Widdowson.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
