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 am particularly grateful for the way in which you accommodated our wishes to carry Jade’s coffin into the crematorium, and also for the lengths you went to in enabling me to visit my brother at your Chapel of Rest; you all combined to make a poignant day a memorable and joyous occasion, and for that I’ll always hold you all in the highest regard. I am most grateful to everyone who made my brother’s passing such a dignified affair. I will not hesitate to appoint Michael Smy once again when necessity demands, and I would hope when my own turn comes that I too am brought into your care.
Thank you all for your respectful and courteous service. I will endeavour to recommend you to anyone and everyone in need of such services.
I would not hesitate in recommending this company to anyone.
Once again I would like to congratulate you on your company’s professionalism at a very emotional time
On the funeral day every point that we had requested were carried out perfectly. As everything went off to perfection I was so grateful that my wife had a well deserved farewell. I now know why the Directors has the name of DIGNITY. Many many thanks.
