  • 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.

From the start, Neil our funeral director was thorough, supportive and contactable. Queries were answered swiftly and accurately and no matter what request we made, Neil facilitated it where possible.

In these doubly difficult times, the service provided was outstanding and helped the family through the process.

From first contact with Derek Moss funeral service, (Dignity Funerals) I was treated in a respectful dignified manner.
Neil who picked up my husband, treated him with care, respect and dignity, very reassuring and helpful.
Steven was very helpful with organising the funeral, the humanist service, flowers and memory pins, always on hand to answer my questions, and guide me through the process with his caring manner.
Chris gave a wonderful humanist service, capturing the very life of my husband.
The staff in the chapel of rest were compassionate and helpful, dressing my husband in his own clothing and making my last visit with my husband less stressful.
Dignity funerals ensured that everything went perfectly on the day of the funeral, beautiful clean and safe cars, with professional drivers.

From the outset we received a thoroughly professional service from our funeral director Stuart. Every little detail was dealt with quickly and efficiently. We received regular courtesy calls to keep us updated on all arrangements. On the day, we gave Dad a wonderful send off and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Derek Moss Funeral Services to friends and family. Thank you for helping us through a difficult time.
