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
They did everything in their power to make the experience as easy as possible, especially under such difficult and emotional circumstances.
From day one, their kindness and support where outstanding. Every one involved, from the office staff, Jo and Mary, to the pull bearers and Matt the gentleman in charge on the day of the funerals. They were so professional and genuinely caring. We could not have asked for more.
Both funerals went perfectly, even afterwards at the cemetery for the burials. The same professionalism was shown at the cemetery, as well as at the church.
As a family we can not recommend them more highly
The whole process, from beginning to end, was dealt with due dignity.
And the flowers were perfect just as I imagined they would be. Because everything was done on the phone of course.
My Thanks to the staff
