Compassionate Funerals are very caring, considerate and truly live up to their name. I was at a funeral of a friend's father which they took complete care of, going above and beyond, to ensure it ran smoothly. A truly blessed funeral company. Thank you!
- Ayub (Spiritual)
The team at Compassionate Funerals were exceptional. Allistair was very accommodating and came to the family house to meet all the family to get a sense of our mother who passed away. They made us feel like we were celebrating the life of our loved one rather than grieving a loss.
I would highly recommend them.
- Sonia (Christian)
Compassionate Funerals were a great support to us at a very difficult time. They accommodated our bespoke needs, making suitable suggestions that did not require purchases but enhanced the care and personal touch that we were able to give our loved one for the last time. They didn’t try to ‘sell’ us anything that we hadn’t asked for. Allistair was a helpful grounded soul through the lead up to the funeral, visiting us at home more than once and offering to attend Jacks resting place with us while we chose his plot.
Despite Allistair having input when needed on the lead up to the day he managed to become invisible while still being present on the day, patiently allowing the mourners to feel it was an intimate event despite the presence of a stranger.
Thank you Compassionate Funerals, we are so glad that we chose you.

After just a couple of minutes on the phone Allistair knew just what my mum would have wanted and helped me with what I would need to do, then dropped me an email confirming the next steps. So helpful, knowledgable and professional at all times. The office is lovely and the Compassionate Funerals team helped us through our grief with their handling of the funeral in such a considered way.

I found Compassionate Funerals to be very helpful, reliable and economical. I have recommended them since and would do so again.
- Jon Underwood (Buddhist)
I highly recommend Compassionate. They responded quickly and sensitively to our requests within a tight timeframe (after our mother passed away very suddenly) and supported us wonderfully in providing a lovely service.
- Zoe (Humanist)
When you lose a loved one the last thing you should worry about is how to prepare for the funeral! Sadly it has to be done so you want it done with ease! This was my second time using Compassionate Funerals and they really did take the load off with ideas and suggestions! From price planning to finding a music piece to be played, they were really helpful! Everything was organised quickly, which made the day perfect! I kept thinking I had forgotten to do something (which I hadn’t) but an email or phone call always reassured me! They respond promptly and always offer a friendly ear! I had time to grieve the passing of my sister without worrying how to make her day perfect!
- Denise (Christian)
I was abroad and my mum died suddenly. I called Compassionate Funerals and they took care of everything from start to finish. Being a Bengali Hindu who grew up in East London, we had to follow both religious and cultural funeral rites, which the Compassionate Team were already so familiar with - it was comforting to know that they understood exactly what we needed, for example with the Puja. I knew that my mum would be in great care and the whole funeral experience was cathartic and peaceful.
- Bubbly (Hindu)
Couldn't have asked for more. Allistair and his staff helped my family through one of our toughest times. The kindness, warmth and patience shown to us was more then we could ever have expected.
We would like to sincerely thank you for your support.
I found Allister and the team at Compassionate Funerals to be very helpful, professional and experienced in dealing with the arrangements for my late uncle. They were able to provide a quick and well organised funeral service which was exactly what we needed as our family live overseas.
They saved me a lot of traveling back and forward with the efficient service they gave at a very difficult time for my family.
Allistair and the rest of Compassionate Funerals were excellent. They were always responsive, kind and gentle, providing just the right amount of help that we needed to guide us through the process.
Extremely professional and high quality.
- Dave (Secular)
The funeral service for my late father was well organised with compassionate and care from Allistair. This had helped to ease off some our pain during what was a very difficult time for the bereaved family. Allistair was attentive to the needs of the family and my father had a very dignified funeral.
I would highly recommend the service of compassionate funerals to anyone.
- Manwai (Roman Catholic)
Hasina took care of everything and insured that the day ran smoothly.
Caring and respectful during a tough time.
- Thomas (Secular)
A wonderful warm welcoming establishment. The personal service is impeccable and perfect for all your requirements. Highly recommend the friendly and intimate service this lovely couple offer.
- Mariya (Muslim)
A very caring and professional outfit. I would highly recommend Hasina and her team.
- Mark (Secular)
This is family owned business run by Hasina and Allistair who really are very compassionate people. No details are too big or too small and they really do care about everyone they meet. They provide a great service with really friendly and helpful staff Its a pleasure knowing them.
- Matthew (Secular)
Having taken a Golden Leaves Funeral Plan with Compassionate Funerals I was surprised to have an additional meeting to discuss my final wishes as part of the service offered by Hasina & Alastair & put into Plan Document for safe keeping.
I would recommend the Golden Leaves Funeral Plan to anyone wishing to ensure peace of mind as part of their own end of life plan and Compassionate Funerals are the perfect partners to action this with.
- Brett (Church of England)
I recommend Allistair and his colleagues at Compassionate Funerals without hesitation. From my first contact and throughout Allistair was compassionate, thoughtful, attentive, helpful, empathetic, organised and kind. Allistair and Hasina enabled my children and I to have exactly the funeral we wanted for our beautiful Sheila. Thank you.
