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 of our services
I can’t praise them enough, Gill who looked after us at the Prescot branch couldn’t do enough for us, she provided everything and kept in close contact with us daily, even finding a choir solo singer for mums funeral , and helped where people could park who came far away and searched for the right service cards with Poppy’s on, I didn’t have a clue what to do , even gave me advice regarding the wake, this lady is a credit to your business also when the hurst and cars arrived Steven and the guys looked after us, right upto dropping us off at the wake not once did they rush us, we could take our time to say goodbye to our lovely mum , you have the best staff at Berry & Jagger
I will always be forever grateful what they did for dad me & my family through a very sad time
There were some particular issues with the coroners office which delayed the funeral but I have to say Rachel was superb in supporting the family not only with the various aspects of the funeral arrangements themselves but also in supporting us in our dealings with the coroners office.
The funeral itself went off without any problems and was a really well managed event and thanks to Stephen the funeral director who led on the day.
Overall we received a first class professional and friendly service from all the staff who we came into contact with from B&J. The advice we received in particular from Rachel was welcomed and well received both in terms of the issues with the coroners office and also in putting together the various aspects of the funeral arrangements. Service was always courteous, timely and responsive and I particularly valued the fact that when a response was promised it arrived whether in person, on the phone or by email.
The costs of the funeral may not have been the cheapest available (hard to comment as I did not shop around) but you get what you pay for and my primary consideration was to ensure I received a quality well managed service.
Thank you once again to Rachel, Stephen and other colleagues at B&J, you delivered a first class funeral and overall service.
If you are reading this and wonder if you should use the services of this company or look elsewhere. Well all I can say is everyone will do everything you want and more besides. If you wanted to see your loved one late in the evening or early on a Sunday morning it would not be a problem.
Also they make a smashing cup of tea.!
