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
Although mum had a funeral plan in place, there were still questions that we had for which they gladly answered. We all deal with death in different ways and they gave us opportunities to discuss what we was wanting too, so communication was excellent.
A huge thank you for which was the second most saddest day of our lives for making it as stress free and as comfortable as it could be. Full of gratitude and praise.
The celebrant Annie was marvellous, giving such a warm beautiful service.
Thank you everyone for making a sad and difficult time bearable.
We were always kept informed and updated and if we had any questions it was dealt with straight away.
What also made it very special is that I know my late father was looked after whilst in their care.
G Hogben & Sons Funeral Directors are professional, competent and empathetic. We would highly recommend G Hogben & Sons to any family who experience the loss of their loved ones.
The same care and understanding was provided before, during and after the funeral.
Many thanks, Cliff Montgomery.
