Business Overview
We understand this is a challenging time and it feels like there is a lot to do. We also understand that you’ll probably have a lot of questions going through your mind. This is normal as most funerals are organised by someone who has never been through the process. Whether a loved one has died at home, in hospital or in a care home, or whether it was expected or not, we have been helping people for over 60 years to guide them through this time. Questions we often hear include: How does it work? Cremation or burial? What happens with the will? How do I get a death certificate? What will the funeral cost? Will I be listened to? We understand that it’s a challenging time, and having a supporting friend who can answer those questions and guide you through the process can help. Our caring team have been that friend for many people – listening, understanding, patient, calm, sympathetic, respectful and open - over the last 60 years. You may already have an idea of what you want, however, we can help you plan: - burial or cremation - the type of service (religious or non-religious) - the type of coffin - urn or headstone - transport - music or hymns - flowers - funeral stationery - where to hold the wake - charity donations - notices in the local paper and online We are also on hand, 24 hours a day, to help you before the funeral, to arrange the funeral and during the funeral. And like a friend, we are here to help you organise the funeral that fulfils your loved one's wishes.
