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.

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.

Everything went very smoothly on the day. Funeral director looked after us very well. He was very professional and extremely respectful. We thought it very
respectful to us
that he walked in front of the hearse upon it driving out of our close to the main road. Also our thanks to the drivers and pall bearers and everyone else involved at the Crematorium.
We had a lot of people attending the funeral and everything was organised so efficiently.
My thanks also to the office staff for their efficiency in carrying out our wishes exactly as requested.
We were very touched to receive the memory box and the framed photograph from serenity that we were given after the funeral.
We were also very pleased with the excellent quality of the order of service booklets from the printers.
Thanks again to everyone involved.
They went ovet smd sbobe my expectations checking in on me at every opportunity msking sur things ran smoithly on the day . A gift of guest book and framed photo was a special gesture on their deparure after tbe service. Much appreciated
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
