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:

The relatively sudden death of my best friend who was 48 years old was one of the hardest things to bear. Levingtons made arranging his funeral so easy, the staff felt like friend who listened and understood with no pressures I’d like to thank pippa and Michael for bringing comfort at such an awlful time. Keep up the good work and never change

I was very impressed from first to last with the way in which Kathryn at Leverton handled the arrangements. Very sensitive and professional indeed.

Levertons dealt with the funeral of our dear aunt with respect and tenderness. Kathryn at the Hampstead branch was very helpful and personable and explained the process and was considerate of our wishes. She communicated regularly and was there on the day to assist and reassure.

I had a very positive experience with Leverton in Belsize Park. Kathryn made the whole experience of organising my husband’s funeral very easy, and in assisting me to obtain the desired ceremony. The result was faultlessly beautiful.

Dear Kathryn, Thank you for your invaluable care and support during the dark days following Richard’s passing. You were a great comfort to us as a family and your ability to coordinate all the various aspects involved was nothing short of a miracle. The funeral, although traumatic, went smoothly. We received nothing but wonderful comments from all involved. We send you very best wishes.

The service that Levertons (Golders Green) provided, cannot be faulted. From beginning to end and through every aspect of the arrangements, they were: professional, supportive, kind and extremely patient. I would recommend this company very highly

Review by Catherine D left on 23 Oct 2023


Kathryn was brilliant - she was thorough, efficient, friendly - everything from preparation to the actual day went very well. It was so nice that this old, established firm, continued to serve their customers with a personal touch. Can't recommend more. Thank you Kathryn!
