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 for Hodgson & Sons Funeral Directors in Kingstanding
At every step of the way they showed care and respect and I can’t thank Laura, Jordanna and Rebecca enough.
I would not hesitate in recommending them in the future.
Thank you, we would definitely recommend Hodgson & Sons to anyone.
Thank you very much.
Thanks to Jordana and the team.
Both Katherine, who organised everything and Gary and the team on the day of the service are a credit to the business and I would reccomend Hodgson's to anyone in need of their services.
Trying to deal with the necessary arrangements at the hospital and the following procedures when you live seventy miles away is not easy, particularly with the current Covid restrictions. However, the help and understanding received throughout made it so much easier and I felt confident that my aunt was in safe hands
I must say a special thank you to Katherine for the way in which she kept me informed of progress in a gentle and sympathetic manner. From making the arrangements for the floral tribute, which was absolutely perfect, to the choice of music to enter and exit, which was very appropriate. The Webcast worked perfectly too and was appreciated by family unable to attend.
Thank you all again Kevin S
