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 of our services
A date was set for the funeral and Sophie kept us updated all the time. Everything was explained about the maximum of 30 people etc and it all went off very well on the day - as close to what aunty had wanted in her plan as could have been achieved. I had a courtesy call from Sophie some days later to check we'd been happy with the funeral, which we were. I'd certainly recommend Thomas J Thomas and also the idea of taking out a funeral plan.
I cannot fault the treatment I received.The staff I dealt with ,Liz and Jodie ,acted with great empathy and professionalism.
They were a pleasure to deal with, and talked to me,and importantly ,listened.
They were a great support to me.
On the day of the funeral,in the middle of Lockdown in Wales, the team gave the mourners time to talk and mix as far as was safe.
I appreciated this at the interment; we were left to recover, take in the situation and talk.
In the absence of a wake this was so appreciated.
As for going above and beyond normal standards,yet another team member volunteered to drive as she had known my cousin.
All of mine and my daughters'wishes were carried out as we wanted.
Staff very knowledgeable and professional thank you
