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
Natalie helped us with choosing the coffin and supported with each process. Liaising between the Father and ourselves at every turn.
We were extremely pleased that the opportunity to view the service on the web could be available as so many people were unable to attend. Especially those overseas.
Steve Jones could not have made the service go any smoother and also passed remaining order of service pamphlets to guests who could not enter for the service. They stood outside and listened to the service.
We are so pleased with the service and care provided by Serenity
As you promised, we all felt we knew exactly what was going to happen at every moment of the sad event yesterday afternoon. The casket and the flowers looked magnificent and the event was conducted with a feeling of calmness and respect. We very much appreciated Mr Jones' agreement to alter the plans to allow for the route for the hearse and limousine to pass by areas of particular importance to my mother. I know that the managers and nurses at Sovereign Lodge Care Centre were pleased that they could share in the celebration of her life.
I would also like to thank you for the book of remembrance and for the orders of service, which we will be able to send to her friends who were not able to attend due to either infirmity or distance.
Well done Serenity and thankyou.
The whole team at Serenity were helpful throughout particularly during these pandemic times. They listened to what myself and brother wanted for mum and understood that, although mum had written down her wishes, we wanted to tweak them slightly. 25yrs is a long time and mum’s ideas had changed over that time. Nothing drastic though and Serenity understood why we were doing what we did.
I can’t thank Serenity enough for everything they did which made the day go smoothly even ringing up on the morning to check everything was ok our end. The Dignity plan certainly saved us a lot of worry too.
Although not the size of funeral my mother had expected and indeed planned for, I know she would have approved of the way we all said our goodbyes to her.
Please thank Steve and his team very much for their superb service and attention to detail.
I would 100% recommend Serenity Funeral directors
