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 278 6291.

At a very difficult time, more so because of the restrictions imposed due to Covid, I found all the staff that I dealt with, especially my designated contact at F.L.Mildred & Sons to be extremely helpful, caring and sympathetic. Nothing was too much trouble and the advice I received was invaluable, as this isn't something anyone does on a regular basis. All the procedures and processes were fully explained, as were the choices available for type of funeral, choice of casket, orders of service and flowers. I requested that my chosen floral arrangement was made in an alternative colourway-and again no problem. In fact at the actual service, everyone, without exception commented on this, being the exact colours they associated with my late cousin. Another nice touch was the keepsake box containing the orders of service and the lovely keepsake frame holding the photograph I provided.Thank you to everyone at FL Mildred & Sons who helped to arrange and carry out my dear cousins last journey.To anyone looking for a Funeral Director in the Leicester area, I thoroughly recommend FL Mildred &Sons.

Excellent care throughout from start to finish, and always there if needed with help and advice. I never felt as if I were alone in this journey.
Many thanks.
Response from F L Mildred & Sons Funeral Directors
Your kind words mean a great deal to the team who always work very hard to deliver great care. It is comforting to know that the staff were there to support you through this time and relieve some of the pressure through guidance and support.

I found the whole process was handled with calm and professionalism, everything was explained in detail re the choices that were available. The service went off smoothly and much better than I thought it would. I was particularly impressed with the celebrant, who wove the jumbled information presented to her into a sympathetic telling of my mothers life history.
All very much appreciated.
Response from F L Mildred & Sons Funeral Directors

Everyone I dealt with at F.L. Mildreds (Dignity Funerals) was very helpful, respectful and made a very difficult time easier to cope with. I always felt there was support anytime if I needed to ask anything and on the funeral day they made it easier to get through with their help and support. Thank you.

From start to finish the staff were professional, knowledgeable and caring. Although F L Mildreds are part of a big firm now I felt like I was being looked after by a family of workers who had the time to sit and make a horrible situation not so bad. I don't want to mention any names in particular as everyone has been supportive and it usually takes a team of workers to make the front line as good as they were. I would also recommend taking out the funeral plan especially if that awful time is looming as it's an opportunity to think about what your loved ones would like.

Our family were very pleased with the service provided by F L Mildred. They provided us with a full explanation both with the costs involved and the funeral service details. On the day of the funeral we were met by the representative of the funeral directors. He was very attentive to our needs and made us feel assured at the service and at the church yard for the burial.
