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
Welcome checking-in to make sure all aspects were kept on track.
Beautiful service and seamless sewing together of the various elements of the funeral.
I have organised a number of funerals over the past 5 years and Gorringe are the best funeral directors I have come into contact with.
Many thanks for all of your help.
Guidance of the whole funeral process .... especially during Covid .
Explaining everything clearly with compassion and great dignity to our beloved son .
Very personable and treated with the utmost of care and respect .
I was surprised at the cost of everything and hadn't realised that some of the services would be charged separately to the funeral fee - so make sure you ask about that. I expect it would be the same with any funeral directors though and do recommend Gorringe's.
I would thoroughly recommend this funeral service.
I would always recommend J Gorringe & Son
