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
My family and I felt very well supported by the team at such a difficult time in our lives.
From the first telephone call, the funeral service itself and the wonderful drivers on the day I couldn’t have wished for a better service. The drivers helped with elderly and inform relatives and took us to the service and onto our final destination.
Everything was clearly explained and delivered exactly as described. Dads plan covered all the costs involved which takes away a lot of the stress at a very difficult time.
I highly recommend Sankey and Monks Funeral Directors, hence the five stars.
On the actual day of the funeral the saloon picked us up at our ‘Wake’ venue on time then we met the Funeral Director at S&M offices who was professional, polished and obviously very well trained. The funeral was conducted to plan.
We have no hesitation in recommending Sankey & Monks and award them the highest star rating.
I would like to add a note of Thanks for your help, support, organisation and professionalism with my Mother Funeral.
Your advice, guidance has been invaluable and made the whole process far less stressful than anticipated (as mentioned it was the first Funeral I had to organise).
What Sankey and Monks did was to convert an emotional situation of confusion into a simple process of the required organisation which although took some of the emotion away did not deviate from it.
Your advice on Stuart (The Minister) was spot on also – He did a great job.
