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.

Professional service again from all the staff at Wellens. Patient, dignified and helpful, providing guidance when you needed it and melting into the background when you didn't. Provided exactly the level of service we wanted/needed.

My Auntie had a funeral plan so most of the arrangements were already in place.

Diane helped confirm the funeral details over the phone until I was able to visit in person.

I felt Covid safe at all times.

Providing an appropriate carrier for my Auntie's ashes was much appreciated. Thank You.
Response from S. Wellens & Sons Funeral Directors
Thank you for your review. I am happy that the pre-paid funeral plan made it easier to arrange the service for your Auntie and we have been working hard to maintain our high standards of care in these challenging times and it's great to know that we succeeded in doing so.

I was very pleased with the service that I received from S Wellens when my Mother passed away. The whole process was dealt with very professionally from the moment she passed away to the end of the funeral. Everyone was very supportive and kind throughout. I can only say how they took all strain out of very difficult time . My thanks and gratitude to each and every person who was involved at such a sad time.

I found the service to be efficient, thorough and very professional. Every member of the team I had dealings with showed empathy and courtesy. Everything ran smoothly from start to finish. Wellens had previously taken care of both my father and brother. On the death of my mother there was no other funeral service to consider. They took great care of my mother and she looked beautiful when we viewed her at the funeral home. I would not hesitate to recommend Wellens.
