    The Crematorium ServiceFrom £1,495

    A direct cremation is different to a traditional ceremonial funeral. There is no service, no hearses or limousines and mourners do not attend the cremation. The ashes are then either scattered or returned to you, which allows you to arrange a separate remembrance service at a more personal and reflective location for the individual if you wish.

    • A professional Arranger will provide support, guidance and co-ordinate everything for you
    • There is no service or ceremony for mourners to attend

Mam's funeral went as well as expected given the way things are at the moment.
A Shepherd and sons were very professional.
Kind regards

From the moment my mother passed away, we have experienced nothing but very good care and attention, particularly from John at A.Shepherd & Sons. Nothing has been too much trouble and everything was explained very clearly: my mother was clearly in safe and capable hands. The funeral cars and procession were very professional and John waited after the service whilst we spoke to relatives who'd travelled some way to the funeral before returning us home.

We couldn't have expected more.
Response from A Shepherd & Sons Funeral Directors
I am glad you chose A Shepherd & Sons Funeral Directors to take care of your Mother and that you had the trust and confidence in our team to be able to deliver the service you expected.

Shepherd & Sons provided an absolutely fantastic service for my mother recently. Throughout the process all the staff were caring, sensitive and helped guide me personally through everything without a hitch, as I had not organised a funeral previously. I’d like to thank John Guinness and Lucy particularly, as they really put our families mind at ease at such a difficult time, and we’re always just a phone all away. I’d have no hesitation at all in recommending Shepherd & Sons. Even with the constraints caused by this Covid pandemic, they made sure the service was dignified, and everything was taken care of. Thank you!

Nothing but praise for Glen, Simon and their team for the professional, helpful and friendly way they conducted themselves at an emotive and difficult time.

However, this did not surprise me and my family having experienced all of this at my mum's funeral in July.

Many thanks to you all and best wishes for the festive season.

I have been asked to leave a review for A Shepherd & Sons on Beverley Road, Hull. Our experience was professional and caring at all times. We were frequently contacted to ask how we were coping. During the interim when we visited the chapel of rest the staff were nothing other than polite, friendly and respectful - for instance knocking on the door to enter the room and talking to our loved one. On the day of the funeral the staff were professional and respectful throughout. We have used Shepherds on a number of occasions which speaks volumes for our experience at such a difficult time (other family and friends have used them on our recommendations). We would like to thank John and his team for their professionalism, respect and kindness at all times.
Response from A Shepherd & Sons Funeral Directors
We are incredibly grateful that you took the time to leave us this review. It’s good to hear that you and the family received helpful guidance through this time and that we managed to make the day run as smoothly as possible for you.

All went well with excellent support throughout for a double funeral. Glenn was helpful and listened to our needs, the plans and service was personal and just what we asked for. Sadly admin has fallen short. I have been invoiced for the full amount despite paying the smaller agreed amount prior to the service. The person I spoke to around 10 days ago said she would get back to me but as yet I have heard nothing, there seemed to be some confusion as to finding evidence of you receiving my payment which is alarming, more so as I have not heard anything further from Sheperds.
Response from A Shepherd & Sons Funeral Directors
Thank you for your 4 star review. I am sorry to note that you do have some concerns over the invoice, please contact our Client Relations Team on 0800 783 7171 so that we may look into this for you.

I turned up at the funeral home with no knowledge of what to expect. My father had arranged a pre paid funeral plan and I was totally oblivious as to how this would work.
Glen was the person dealing with me at A Shepherd & Son and he was a star from the very beginning!
He was so caring, understanding, compassionate and respectful I couldn’t have asked for anything more.
I would certainly highly recommend this company to anyone as they went above and beyond my expectations.
Nothing was too much trouble they took a lot of stress away from us at such a sad time.
Thank you to everyone at A Shepherd & Son. Beverley Rd. Hull
