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."
Yes - if you are having an Attended Cremation you can pick which crematorium that you choose - let your family and friends know your wishes too. If you are having an Unattended Cremation you will not be able to choose which crematorium we use.
A direct cremation takes away all the fuss and separates the cremation from the celebration. A direct cremation also provides families and friends with a dignified opportunity to say goodbye in the way that suits them, without the costs, and stress that come with arranging a traditional funeral. All the arrangements are organised with us directly.
It is entirely up to you who you tell. However, we do advise that you nominate a friend or family to pass on the details of the plan to so that they know what you had planned. We can provide leaflets and information that you can pass to them. You can also leave the information in your will but this is not usually read until after the funeral.
Yes - if you have a Private Cremation Plan and want to upgrade to the Attended Cremation Plan you will only have to pay the difference.
If you have taken a plan out with us the price will remain the same but if you are thinking of taking a plan out then the price may increase from what you see today.
Yes you can as it helps to organise and be prepared.
As direct cremations are simple funerals we don't provide flowers. However, the family can make arrangements for flowers to be delivered to the crematorium directly should they wish.
There are four ways to pay - credit card, debit card or cheque as a one-off payment or by monthly direct debit instalments (0% interest)
