  • 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.

This is the second funeral that Elaine has arranged on my behalf. Although she has moved branches she has taken that excellent level of attention to detail with her, and I cannot find fault with the whole arrangemnt package. Nothing was too much trouble and the day went smoothly, although it rained (doesn't it always at funerals??) I would happily have Dignity carry out my own funeral...
