Frequently asked questions
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
On the day of the funeral, there were no areas of concern and I was particularly pleased that we were not rushed back to the limousine, and so had sufficient time to reflect after the service with other family and friends attending.
We would have no hesitation in using J W Tate & Sons again.
On the day of the funeral we were looked after by a team who treated us not only with curtesy and respect but also genuine compassion. Losing someone you love is painful and dealing with the practical details can be daunting and overwhelming but J W Tate and Son made this as easy as possible. I hope we wont need the services of an undertaker again in the near future, but when we do we will use Tate and Son again without question.
