You can pay in monthly installments (0% interest) and acceptance is guaranteed.

Before the cremation, the deceased will be respectfully prepared and dressed in a gown.

Being part of the Westerleigh Group we have helped over 50,000 families a year and here is what a few of them have to say about us.
"Your staff truly are a wonderful team and it would be impossible to find fault with the service they provide, always made comfortable and at ease, no questions were made complicated and always answered in a polite and courteous manner. They truly are an asset to your organisation, you should be very proud."
"We would like to thank you most sincerely for all the care and support in organising a beautiful funeral for our mother. What would normally be a stressful time, was enjoyable and relaxing. Nothing was too much trouble as the team went over and above to ensure all our special requests with music and tributes were perfect. "
"Thanks so much for the wonderful ceremony that you organised for my dad. The venue was beautiful, we loved the view, birds and squirrel outside, the daffodil picture with dad’s name on the screen, the photo slide show, and the possibility to have the event live-streamed. It was watched by friends and family in UK, We felt it was a marvellous send off for dad."
"Your team did more than anybody could expect under the circumstances and we remain especially grateful for their kindness and consideration. I would like to add that the centre and its surrounding area clearly reflect the high standards you uphold."
