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.

I dealt mainly with Paul but did have interaction with Hazel (?). I can not fault my dealings with any of them. Their care, sympathy and understanding was 100% so how can you improve on perfection? From the first visit to the day of the funeral myself, and my husband Mike, were treated with the utmost reverence and respect.
I can’t thank them enough for making such a difficult and emotional time more bearable. Also for their recommendation of the celebrant, Phil Spicksley, as the perfect accompaniment to an already great team.
I can’t thank you enough
