Our funeral services

Our Full Service Funeral allows you to personalise every aspect of the funeral, whilst the Simple Funeral is suitable for those who can be a little flexible with the details. Alternatively, we can guide you through some low-cost cremation options available.

Direct Cremations from £995

You may alternatively prefer a direct cremation, a lower cost and family-led alternative to a traditional funeral. You can choose from a selection of cremation options to celebrate the life of your loved one your own way. No matter what choices you make, you can be sure that the service you receive will be of the highest quality.

Direct Cremations from £995

We are here to guide you through your funeral choices. All Direct Cremation packages include cremation fees, doctor's fees, provision of a simple coffin, transportation of the deceased in specialised vehicles and care of the deceased in a professional mortuary facility until the day of the funeral.

The Unattended Funeral from £995, also known as a Direct Cremation is ideal for those who prefer a simpler affair and those who want to have the cremation now without any attendees, and a service later, on their own terms. Other cremation options include a service with twelve or more attendees, but without the reassuring face-to-face guidance of a funeral director.

For more information and details, please do not hesitate in getting in touch with us at 0116 286 3216.

Excellent service, professional as expected on this profession but went the extra mile with regular updates, promised calls made, a deep sense of your loss when discussing details with you and fully informed you of everything at each and every step of the process. Lydia the liaison assigned to our case was always courteous, attentive and extremely helpful and even hand delivered details to our house out if hours which was appreciated. Cant fault Heighton at all, than you

The individuals (Sally) that dealt with me were excellent and very caring.

However I felt that the business represented and came across as a very corporate organisation. My expectations of a funeral service Is probably somewhat old fashioned but I expected a local service that actually felt local.

Whilst I wouldn’t go as far as to say that I wouldn’t recommend this provider I would probably say to anyone planning a funeral try and seek an independent operator

It would appear that most independent looking operators are in fact part of a larger corporate body so check before you part with your cash.

Absolutely no reflection on the individuals that dealt with me but the overall feeling was that of a cold profit making organisation.

Indeed prior to being sent this review request I was contacted by someone that had clearly been reading from a script to pre-empt a good review, a fairly transparent tactic and one which I did not appreciate.

I will be utterly amazed if this makes its way onto any platform.
Response from W Heighton & Son Funeral Directors
Thank you for your review. We have always contacted our clients after the funeral to ensure we have given the high standard of service they should expect and appreciate your feedback on the service received – thank you for your kind comments about our staff. Leaving a review is completely optional and we appreciate you taking the time to do so.

We have sadly, in a matter of months, said goodbye to both our mother and father. Heighton's have been wonderful, very caring, great communication and on the day of the service looked after us magnificently.

Couldn't have asked for better in such sad circumstances
