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
Making the arrangements was straightforward and the funeral was just as we had hoped.
Thank you for everything.
Both Debbie & Lorraine are an asset to the company.
Thank you for a great service.
The Celebrant Kate was wonderful and felt like a friend I had known all my life. I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to take the Service.
On the day it ran smoothly and I did him proud.
I would like to thank everyone who helped me give the most wonderful Man the best send off I could.
Nothing was too much trouble, no question or query was unanswered and no request was denied.
Our biggest thanks goes to Debbie, as without her caring and understanding the whole process would have been a very daunting experience.
