Immediate Assistance

In the case of someone dying at home, or if you need to contact us for immediate assistance out of our office hours, please do call us. We can arrange collection at any time of day or night:

Mrs Deborah Rush has been a model of the polite, patient, caring, knowledgeable, informative and efficient professional with a light touch one needs as a funeral director. I knew I was in safe hands before I even met her as she kindly moved her own car to allow me to park right outside her office after I had driven around for 20 minutes failing to find anywhere to park for our first planning meeting. Every subsequent communication was clear and mighty helpful guiding me through the whole process so the day of my Aunt's funeral was a polished, dignified and memorable event. All the details were attended to in measured manner; her team of Oliver, Ross and Jason and one gentlemen I failed to note the name of looked after me and the family in their own polite professional style. The team were kind and flexible allowing some of the congregation to assist in the entrance of the coffin at the start of the service. I am most grateful for the truly excellent service provided by Deborah and her team throughout the last three and a half weeks. Thank you.

Leverton & Sons were very professional and helpful throughout the entire process. This was my first time arranging a funeral but their help made the process far more straightforward than I was expecting. A big thanks to Julie who was so supportive and responsive - exactly the type of person you need when you're going through such a tough time.

Levertons can be relied upon 100% during those worst days/weeks after losing a loved one - professional, calm, kind and competent throughout. They organised and coordinated everything perfectly, and made a terrible time bearable. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

Craig, funeral director at Leverton and Sons was very patient throughout the entire process of booking and when finally having my Father’s funeral. Craig’s persona meant I was not stressed anymore than I was. Craig was exactly what my family needed at this time and I will always remember him. For his kindness. Thanks so much for your caring, understanding and empathic persona. No issues or concerns arose.
