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
The whole process from start to finish was handled with utmost professionalism, courtesy and sympathy. Everything possible was done to make a distressing time for myself and my family more comfortable to endure.
Communication from them was very good and all requests from myself and the family were handled with grace and pleasantness.
The service at Chase Crematorium was excellent and we had many, many good comments from attendees. Linda's recommendation of the Reverend for the service was perfect as he did an outstanding job.
I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone.
If it wasn’t for there helpfulness & empathy it would have been a much more harder process to get through.
Linda was exceptional.
They listened to our wishes and carried out the families request
The team were wonderful through what is a sad time
we were informed at every stage to what would happen
The director for the day of the service phoned me the day before to run through it all and make sure we were happy with it all
Thanks to all the staff at the Lichfield office
Every member of the team that we dealt with were outstanding. Having their support made the most difficult of times less stressful and I am grateful for everything Mark and the team did.
Mark and his team provided a dignified, graceful service at the Crematorium and helped us afterwards. I appreciated a call from Mark the previous day, reassuring me of the Covid measures and exactly what we should do on arrival. It was all truly dignified.
Linda was in touch the next day to find out how we felt and a lady from Dignity rang 2 weeks later to see if we were still alright. We were so impressed that they all went the extra mile, knowing how busy they are in the pandemic.
I have huge praise and thanks to FM & J Wait staff for their care.Thank you.
From the start everyone was professional and respectful, acting swiftly and considerately whilst understanding that I wasn’t always able to make a decision due to grief. I never felt hurried and there was always a listening ear at the end of the phone.
Delivered what they promised.
They offered us a service whereby all the details of the service and the wake could be emailled to all family and friends. Initially there were some problems about getting this ready to send but then it worked well.
We were very grateful to all involved.
