As soon as we are contacted, your loved one will be brought into our care and you will be given access to a dedicated funeral arranger, who will guide you through each step at your own pace. They can talk you through all of the paperwork required to register the death and advise of the timeline which will follow.
We will, when you feel ready, help you make informed decisions about the funeral and handle all arrangements on your behalf. We do all we can so that you can concentrate on the needs of yourself and your family.
We will treat your loved one with the same kindness and respect as we’d expect if they were a member of our own family. Our experienced team, including arrangers, embalmers and operatives, are trained to the very highest standards.
But it doesn't end there. As part of the support our funeral directors offer to every family dealing with the loss of a loved one, they also help out with the administrative side of bereavement. This includes guidance on what paperwork is required, along with advice to ensure it is completed correctly and, where necessary, within a timely manner.
Though meeting in such difficult circumstances, we will take the time to form a bond with you and your family and learn about your loved one and the role they played in the family. This will ensure we can support you in making informed decisions about each aspect of the funeral.
We will listen to your specific wishes and liaise with our internal team and all necessary third parties to efficiently make all arrangements on your behalf.
Once all funeral details are confirmed, we will help you pass on the details to those who knew your loved one via a complimentary online Funeral Notice, giving you one less thing to think about.
We support local events where possible and we’re always on hand to advise other public bodies on care for the deceased and bereaved. We also have a good relationship with a number of local care homes, working together to support bereaved family members and give the greatest care to those who have passed.
