About Us

Dandelion Farewells is an independent funeral company offering a highly personal and professional support , enabling families to plan a meaningful and memorable funeral. At the heart of our business is an unhurried approach, listening to what is important to you, and a willingness to openly share with you a wealth of knowledge and understanding, allowing you to make the choices that feel right to you.

Dandelion Farewells is a modern business, flexible and individually tailored to respond to the particular circumstances and requests of each family. We provide a sensitive, personalised approach to funeral care, mindful of the many choices that are available and guiding you through the important decisions that need to be made.

Founder Judith Dandy explains, “The process of planning and attending a funeral provides an important opportunity to honour the person who has died, express grief and share comfort. Dandelion Farewells will ensure that we take into account your wishes so that the funeral ceremony is a true reflection of the life lived.

We invite you to be as involved as you choose. We will support you to create a farewell that is appropriate and unique, thereby taking away much of the strain of planning such a significant event.

By listening to your circumstances and what is right for you, I will guide you through the whole process, with care and attention to detail, so that you understand all that needs to be done and can make informed choices, feeling truly confident that you are giving your loved one the very best farewell."

– Sensitive to your particular customs – whether a classic, traditional approach or creating a fresh, completely bespoke occasion, or something in between.

– You choose – burial or cremation, religious or secular, minister or celebrant, music, flowers, tributes and memorialisation. We are here to help you decide what will create the most fitting day to remember your loved one.

– An environmental approach – we partner with carefully selected local suppliers of funeral products where possible, and wholeheartedly advocate Natural Burial as a preferred choice for many people.

– A professional service at a fair cost – our price schedule is transparent, so you are able to make the financial choices that are sensitive to your own budget.
