In Memory

Funeral announcements

If you wish to publish the details of a funeral, or the announcement of a death which has occurred, you can do so through social websites like Facebook, local or national newspapers and/or 'Much Loved' Levertons tribute website.

We’re happy to place newspaper announcements for you. The cost is dependent on the length of your text and, in some cases, it might be cheaper for you to book it directly online yourself.

Remember to include our address for donations and delivery of flowers in your announcement. You could also include a link for making donations online.

Funeral flowers and their meanings

Floral tributes can be sent by a local florist to the family home or to the funeral director to arrive at least 2 hours before the funeral takes place. You may wish to bring wild flowers or something from your own garden and bring them with you. If a great many tributes are expected, please let the funeral director know so that, if necessary, an extra vehicle can be arranged to take them to the committal.

We can provide you with details of local florists if required.

You can find information about the meanings of different types of flower here:

Funeral donations

​Levertons can collect charity donations before, during and after the funeral. Donations sent to us by post should be made out to the charity concerned and have the name of the deceased on the back of the cheque. We allow around 6 weeks to elapse before sending them to the organisation, at which point we also send a list of donors to the next of kin.

Alternatively, donations can be made online through Much Loved – a simple online payment processing site that allows the donations to be passed quickly to the charity and enables the recovery of Gift Aid to further enhance the gift. The site allows donors to leave a message or to give anonymously.

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:

My heartfelt thanks go to Craig and the team who took care of my Dad earlier this month. From start to finish it was perfect. Their care and professionalism was spot on.

The service we have received from Levertons has been empathetic, understanding and non judgemental. We dealt with Carmel and she was efficient, and thoughtful, making a difficult time, easier to manage. My uncle died alone, having lived a solitary life. As a family we had no idea of his wishes, but knew that a large busy funeral would not have fitted in with who he was. We opted for a quite non attended cremation, and it was arranged seamlessly, and efficiently, helping the family that remained, to have peace that he had some dignity at the time of death. Due to the distance, it was all managed online and over the phone, which meant easy communications to all the family. We have used Levertons for all family in London and would recommend then time and time over. Thank you from us

After what has been a testing couple of months, Leverton handled the funeral of my late Brother Stefan with compassion and dignity, and arranged for his ashes to be scattered at Golders Green Crematorium in the same place as his parents. I would like to thank them for their patience and kindness throughout this difficult time.

Debbie and all of Levertons looked after both my mum five years ago and my uncle last month they were -without doubt amazing caring and professional. I can't thank them enough.

Kathryn was kind, patient and always flexible with arrangements. It's a compliment to say she was also entirely professional: when you're organising a funeral you're not usually at your most efficient, so it's essential to have someone who is. My thanks to her and her team.

Review by Roger H left on 13 May 2024


I cannot recommend Levertons highly enough. Craig Parker was so helpful, and made all the arrangements for my mother's funeral, and his colleague Lorna Walkden ensured that everything went smoothly on the day. It mean that I could focus on the event, without worrying about the arrangements. A source of great comfort and reassurance at a very difficult time.

Review by Lorna H left on 13 May 2024


Highly recommended, thought Levertons were professional and dignified throughout the whole process of the funeral arrangements. My particular thanks goes to Lorna for her professionalism through our experience in dealing with Levertons
