Arranging a Funeral

 

It is our policy to assume as much of the responsibility as we can so that we may guide you comfortably through this difficult time.

It is always better for you to contact the funeral director as soon as possible

 

 

CALLING OUR FUNERAL HOME FOR THE FIRST TIME.

We appreciate the first call to us can be difficult, people often don’t know what to say or even how to start the conversation. Our helpful staff will lead with all the necessary questions, the call need not be more than 5 minutes and an appointment will be made for you to sit with a funeral director so you may talk more openly about your preferred arrangements.

 

We would encourage that you telephone the funeral home first to ensure a funeral director is available.

 

MAKING THE ARRANGEMENTS.

The funeral arrangements may take place at our funeral home or in the comfort of your family home, whichever suits you best in the circumstances. Our funeral director will sit down with you and guide you through all the necessary steps, inform you of all the available choices and listen and advise on your own ideas for how to personalise the occasion. The arrangement normally takes about 1 hour.

 

WHEN WILL THE FUNERAL BE?

One of the first things the funeral director would like to do is set a day and a time for the funeral, this will help the family focus and work towards a particular date. We always aim to set the funeral approximately 1 week from the day we sit down together and discuss arrangements, this allows you to move through the events leading up to the funeral comfortably and without feeling unduly rushed.

 

We will take care, on your behalf of all the necessary paperwork, liaise with doctors, hospitals, clergy, crematoria or cemeteries newspapers and caterers as appropriate. There is no extra charge for this it is all included in our fixed price service.

 

Once we have taken your instructions and you have arranged the Funeral, a letter of confirmation will be given to you so the details maybe be checked and agreed.
