What does a Dignity funeral director do?

What exactly does a Funeral Director do here at Yeatmans Funeral Directors?
Support the family ...

Yeatmans Funeral Directors are open 24 hours a day, available to support the family whenever they need it. At least one funeral director remains on call outside of normal opening hours, so there is always someone at the other end of the phone.

Dignity Funeral Directors have a duty of care to their customers, to ensure that the family of lost loved ones are cared for and reassured in their time of need. While choices will need to be made regarding funeral arrangements, with the highest level of care and sensitivity we help them to reach those decisions with confidence.
Supporting family members at a funeral service
Yeatmans Funeral Directors always take the time to first understand who the deceased was, to provide recommendations for a tasteful and respectful service.

But it doesn't end there. The support on offer as part of our funeral services includes providing guidance to the families dealing with the loss of a loved one, as well as helping out with the administrative side of bereavement. This might be guidance on what paperwork is required, along with advice to ensure it is completed correctly and within a timely manner.

The care that Dignity funeral directors offer is universal, with every person receiving the same attentive treatment as part of our 'care of the deceased' process.

To ensure a loved one is looked after in accordance with the family's wishes, our teams will always perform their duties to the highest of standards, from the moment they enter our care, through to the funeral service and the final goodbye.
Funeral flowers placed on coffin lid
Yeatmans Funeral Directors is thankful to the community here in Bournemouth for allowing us to support them during the most difficult of times.

Whether it's working with local care homes, training the clergy in funeral procedure, or advising other public bodies on care for the deceased and bereaved, being a part of Dignity means our funeral directors are always ready to assist and give something back.
