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
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.!
