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.

Very helpful and understanding in the time of need. On the day perfect in every way. I would like to say thanks to all the staff

From the word "go", we felt at ease with Stephanie when arranging my mother's funeral. No question we asked was looked upon as silly or wrong. When Stephanie wasn't available, Jeanine was helpful too. Beverley G.

As a family we cannot thank all the staff at Hartley Foulds for absolutely everything they have done to help us during this very sad time. From the very first phone call we have had help, guidance and support. We were never rushed to make a decision and the staff were always there at the end of the phone to go over any detail. Sadly, our family have had two bereavements in three months and we had no hesitation at all in using Hartley Foulds on both occassions. We feel we have built up a close trusting relationship with them and would have no hesitation in recommending them to any family. In particular we would like to thank Stephanie for always being there at the end of the phone with her calm and helpful manner but again, everyone, including the members of the team on the funeral day were wonderful. They even guided us towards an amazing vicar to lead the service. Thank you .

The staff at Hartley Foulds were extremely supportive at a very difficult time. Stephanie and janine were available to speak to whenever we needed to and were very helpful with things we hadn’t thought of.
Trying to make arrangements over Christmas/ new year and working within lockdown restrictions was made so much easier with their help.
Response from Hartley Foulds Funeral Directors

The girl in the burnley branch was very helpful we spent about three quarter of an hour going through all the details of the funeral. The service went without a hitch and the Car took back where we wanted to go. They have been in touch with me several times after the funeral. I would recommend Hartley foulds to anybody.

At first I wasn't happy where my mum was, busy main road with traffic lights outside the entrance where people can see you enter and leave. Especially hard if upset and knowing you had to go outside where you can be seen.
After entering and meeting the staff you instantly felt you were being looked after and nothing was too much trouble cups of tea and hugs if needed. All the weight of organising the funeral was taken from you. I felt I had known the staff for years ( old friends ). It took away the fact it was on a busy road and I didn't mind entering and leaving and people seeing.
I cant find any fault or reason not to recommend Hartleys funeral service.
Response from Hartley Foulds Funeral Directors
