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
Special thanks to Bev and Jon who helped myself and family through this sad time
I felt very reassured that I had made the right choice because they were both friendly and professional.
The arrangements for the funeral were all very straightforward because the options were presented in a clear way and I was always encouraged to give the office a call if I had any questions.
All of my queries were dealt with promptly and I was kept up to date with progress throughout.
On the day of the funeral everything went very smoothly - the director was very supportive and discreet.
I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Preslands as they gave me and my family first class service.
Bev was very nice to deal with
Thank you for these lovely words, it means so much to the whole team.
any special requests or general enquires were dealt with promptly and with sensitivity.
My father was treated with great respect right from the start of the arrangements and this care was extended to his family and friends on the day of his funeral.
Not so impressed with our initial contact with the Funeral Director but we are happy to accept and understand that he was fairly new to the position.
Following the funeral, we were asked if we would like to pay, there and then and we happily agreed. We weren't given a breakdown of the costs but were quoted a total figure which we paid. It was disappointing to receive, nearly three weeks later, an invoice for an outstanding £5. When we queried this we were told that it might be in respect of the cost of printing the orders of service and that the original figure we were quoted when asked to pay was only an estimate. We weren't told this at the time.
However, we would like to emphasise that the service provided by Margaret, Carol and the Gentleman was superb and made what could have been a difficult time so much easier.
We also appreciate your patience and understanding of our new Funeral Director, who is still training.
I am sorry to hear of the issues surrounding the invoice and the further letter you received, I have asked our Business Manager to look into this and contact you.
Nothing was too much bother and they kept up informed every step of the way.
Very understanding, helpful, efficient and kept us at ease.
