Helping you make it personal
We are here to help you plan and arrange the funeral you would like for your loved one. We undertake to manage all aspects of the process so that you are left with as little additional stress as possible at this difficult time. Or, if you would like to take on any aspect of the arrangements yourself, we can help and advise you to make things as easy as possible.
Funeral arrangements may be made either at the funeral home, or in the comfort of your own home at a mutually convenient time. Once we have discussed the preliminary details, you will receive a written estimate of our charges along with a confirmation of the funeral arrangements.
We have both male and female staff available to provide care for your loved one and we are happy to arrange whichever is your preference. Should you wish to be involved in this, we are pleased to accomodate you.
As independent funeral directors, we are able to help you arrange a funeral to suit both your wishes and budget.
Howard Goodman Funeral Directors can provide a simple, low-cost cremation service or a more elaborate funeral. We are available to advise and guide you on the options available and promise to give the very best of care to you and your loved one throughout.
We are pleased to advertise our pricing structure and always provide a full written account of all costs.
Coffins, caskets and urns
Selecting a coffin or casket is a matter of personal taste and we have carefully sourced a selection that includes both traditional solid timber and modern, environmentally friendly options, such as Willow from the Somerset Levels, sustainably-sourced banana leaf and even handcrafted woollen coffins. We also offer a variety of urns & caskets.
Our qualified florist creates beautiful floral tributes and these may be ordered through us at the time of making funeral arrangements. We would be delighted to assist you in designing a tribute that is personal to you.

Announce details of a forthcoming funeral in the national or local press. We can place notices in any publication and can help you decide on appropriate wording.

Our in-house print specialist can create service stationery as a unique tribute to the person that has died.
