  • 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.

From our initial conversation, the staff at Hogben & Son Funeral Directors provided the professionalism and reassurance we were looking for in organising the funeral of our much loved family member.

Sadly we have made use of Hogben's on 3 occasions in the past year. On each occasion we found all the staff to be compassionate, efficient and caring. On the day of my Mum's funeral everything went very smoothly. We couldn't have wished for more.
