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 for Alfred English & Sons Funeral Directors in Walthamstow
I will have no hesitation in recommending your service to friends and family - Aigbehinmua.
Nothing is too much trouble, everything done for you, always there even if you just need to chat.
There are no words that do justice to how I feel about this amazing group of people.
Trust your loved one's care to Alfred English, they care, really care.
Thank you all so very very much.
My recent experience was made easy as the funeral planner guided me through the procedure.
On the day of the funeral everything went as planned due to the professionalism of the staff.
Many thanks to all involved.
All our encounters with all of the staff were of the same high standard. We are really grateful for the help and service provided and could not recommend them more highly.
We had our flowers ordered and wake from the pack given all which was used. All I can say in my grief at this moment that I am grateful I chose Alfred English and Sons to be my funeral director for my beloved husband
