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 celebrant arranged by yourselves was also very good. It was a beautiful service helped I’m sure by the support provided.
From the initial contact through to the funeral itself, the process went smoothly and without any issues which was a huge help in our time of grief. Thank you to everyone we dealt with at Bardgetts.
This is the second time we’ve used Bardgett and Sons and I would certainly recommend them.
Thanks so much John Bardgett. Excellent company.
From the beginning they were welcoming, considerate, professional and helpful.
Our funeral director was calm and supportive in the face of two bank holidays, a delayed death certificate, our family contracting Covid and going into isolation and the fact that we were unable to contact the Minister, who had moved then gone on holiday.
Her calm advice and support made all the difference and we would not hesitate to recommend them.
Many thanks. You made all the difference.
The flowers were lovely and she did everything possible to make sure it went as smooth as possible it looked a classy funeral and Dad would have been proud. The speaker Tracey spoke beautifully and the speech was moving and funny.
The whole funeral from start to end was very nice and caring
We can’t thank you all x
I was really anxious about my Mums funeral but he re-assured me all would be well and it was. All the staff from John Bardgett especially those present on the day showed my Mum great respect which gave all the family comfort.
I also want to thank Natalie who was very patient with me over the order of service.
I have no hesitation in recommending John Bardgett to anyone who needs these services.
The funeral was swift, stylish and throughout we all felt completely looked after. Everything was exactly right.
