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
From the moment of notifying them of my father's passing through to the arrangements and the funeral itself, it was dealt with so carefully and with sensitivity and kindness.Apps suggested things for the service that we had not thought of. They were at the end of the phone throughout the process and the actual day of the funeral was the best it could be and was managed by Apps with such respect.
It was a lovely touch after the funeral when we were driven back to the house to present my Mum with a beautiful keepsake box with the order of service and space to store cards of condolence. I would not hesitate in recommending A H Apps, a family business that really do care.
Special thank you to Karen & Graham for all your help.
We are so grateful to everybody at Apps for helping us to deal with our loss and making the whole experience more bearable.
Many thanks to all involved, The Coote family
We Was was very pleased with the funeral service at the Medway crematorium.
We also like to give a very special thank you too reverent Melvyn cooke for conducting a very special service to my mum and our family on the day with the way everything was put together.
Thank you to everyone that has been involved.

From the moment we made contact with A H Apps Funeral Directors regarding our Mum's funeral plan it was all made so much easier. Our first contact was Keren who was fantastic and thoroughly explained each step to us. Keren helped with everything from contacting the priest to ordering the music we had chosen for the crematorium and everything in between. E-mails were going backwards and forwards between us making sure the order of service was perfect.
On the day of the funeral everything went like clockwork, the car drivers turned up on time and were very patient and dignified. The service went perfectly, our mum got the send off she deserved. Everybody commented on the day as to how lovely and how well the service went.
I would 100% recommend that anybody with any doubts about Funeral Plans or using A H Apps, you will be completely looked after at a time when care, comfort and patience are needed.
