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
Their professionalism was outstanding, from the first phone call to the end. They dealt with each step with sincere sympathy and advised us of everything required to achieve a successful funeral. Even being on hand on Christmas Eve which was required. Everything was addressed with the utmost respect and as promised.
I would certainly recommend TW Birks should anyone have the misfortune of loosing someone dear.
With particular thanks to Samantha a lovely, friendly, professional, sympathetic, knowledgeable and approachable Director.
Many thanks Samantha - TW Birks
she is outstanding at her job as is both professional but shows incredible empathy during this difficult period. I visited my father whilst he was in your care and i knew instantly he was cared for and treated with upmost respect and Fiona was just amazing to have there with me
she is one in a million and cannot thank her enough
the team at the funeral home also when i visited showed upmost respect and professionalism
an outstanding service in what are very difficult times
Fiona listened to our thoughts and feelings as a family and advised us accordingly even making suggestions we had not thought of and on the day she guided us all along in a very professional way.
Would recommend to anyone. Listened to what we wanted made good recommendations but were just quietly supportive in the back ground without being overwhelming
There was nothing that I would have changed or anything more I could have asked for.
Thank you for helping our family through the difficult task of planning a wonderful tribute to my Mum.
