An introduction to Sherlock Funeral Service of Dorking, Surrey. Sherlock Funeral Service was established in Dorking in 1888, and is now a fifth generation family run business. Offering a first class, comprehensive funeral and memorial service, for both burial or cremation, including the use or our interdenominational service chapel. They will assist and advise you on all aspects regarding funeral arrangements and the associated procedures. They believe that a funeral service should be as individual as the person who has died, offering a wide choice of services which can be tailored to suit the wishes and requirements of the family of the deceased. Their advice is free and may be sought at any time. Burials and cremations throughout the British Isles or abroad may be arranged with complete confidence through Sherlock Funeral Service.

Offices are open 09:00 to 17:00 Monday to Friday, but we operate a 24 hour help line, 365 days a year.

Prearranged Funerals We are well aware of the concern many people have, either in respect of funeral arrangements for themselves, or for a relative or friend for whom they are responsible. Not just concern for the practical implications but most of all for the costs involved. As part of our service, we are able to offer private counselling to assist and advise on all aspects of prepaid, prearranged funerals or any other matters which may be of concern.There are several companies that have been formed in recent years to provide the public with the security of planning and paying for their funeral in advance. Some plans have been criticised for being restrictive both in the choice of funeral arrangements available, and in the selection of a funeral service home, or funeral directors.Golden Charter was specifically formed for independent funeral directors and has a well established trust fund separately and successfully administered. Golden Charter funeral plans offer security, flexibility and peace of mind.

Probate When the deceased has left a will this needs to be proved at the Probate Registry. Once Probate has been granted, the executors named in the will are then able to administer the estate. If the deceased has not left a will they are said to have died intestate. It is then necessary to apply to the Probate Registry for Letters of Administration for permission to administer the estate. The assets of a small estate are sometimes released to the next of kin without Letters of Administration or Probate being granted. A solicitor's expertise in dealing with all aspects of the deceased's estate will of course save you a great deal of time, trouble and worry.The family solicitor may be holding a copy of the will and should be consulted as soon as possible. There may be important instructions in the will concerning funeral arrangements.

Floral Tributes We can supply a full range of high quality floral arrangements, our flowers are purchased fresh daily and designed by our own fully trained florist. To arrange your floral tributes please contact any of our funeral homes during normal working hours where our funeral directors will be pleased to help and advise you.If you are arranging your funeral service through either our Godstone or Tadworth branches you may also speak with our florist and floral tribute specialist directly, call Julie on: 01737 814 650
