What We Do
Much of the work that the Funeral Director does is discreet and is not always readily apparent what duties are carried out.
Funeral Arrangements – these can be made at anytime just by contacting us. We can visit you at your home or you can call into one of our Funeral Homes. We will ensure that each and every detail is discussed with you thoroughly to ensure your wishes and those of the deceased are correctly carried out.
Documentation – on completion of Cremation and Doctors Forms, all certificates are taken to the relevant authorities along with other legal documents. All documentation is retained for future reference by the family and ourselves and all information is kept in absolute confidence.
Liaison and Confirmation – we can take care of all communication regarding the funeral arrangements, with clergy, church, cemetery or crematorium and liaise with the police and coroner where necessary.
You are in control – all arrangements made for the funeral are confirmed in writing, so that the details may be checked and agreed.
Relax and leave it to us – as your Funeral Director, we are here to advise you in making all those arrangements which meet your personal needs and desires. We can advise on and arrange everything from the removal of the deceased from the place of death to our Funeral Home to the arrangement and payment of fees and disbursements relating to the funeral, including crematorium and cemetery fees, parochial fees, press announcements, floral tributes, catering arrangements either at home or an external venue, plus any other detail requested by the relatives of the deceased. All our staff will be attired in smart appropriate dress and shall ensure professional dignified attendance and supervision throughout the funeral.
Here to help – we are here to help you in whatever way we can, to help you cope and adjust to your bereavement. We pride ourselves on providing you with a personal 24 hour, 365 day a year service as standard.
