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 for F L Mildred & Sons Funeral Directors in Wigston
All very much appreciated.
Polite and sensitive to the situation. Good communication and helpful throughout particularly on the day.
Maggie who led us was really nice and supportive and John who spoke on the day delivered with empathy whilst keeping it real. Also thanks to both careful and steady drivers on the day.
