How B Wallis & Sons will help you

Our role isn’t simply to help you arrange a funeral, we provide support for you and your family at every step after a loved one passes away. Here’s why so many families choose us to arrange funeral services in Dagenham.
Emotional support, practical advice
There is a lot to think about when someone dear passes away. It’s important that you receive the comfort and reassurance you need.

Whenever you need us, no matter if it’s 3am or 3pm, we will be on hand to offer emotional support and practical advice. Once your loved one has been brought into our care, you will have access to a dedicated funeral arranger, who will guide you through each step at your own pace, recognising that this is a very sensitive time. They will talk you through the paperwork required, along with advice to ensure it is completed correctly and, where necessary, within a timely manner.

We will help you make informed decisions about the funeral and handle all arrangements on your behalf so that you can concentrate on the needs of yourself and your family.
Supporting family members at a funeral service
Your loved one will be collected in purpose-built, specialist vehicles and will rest peacefully in our state-of-the-art, climate-controlled facilities, where they will be cared for continually.

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 highly experienced team, including arrangers, embalmers and operatives, are trained to the highest standards and will act in accordance with your specific wishes

Though we are meeting under such difficult circumstances, your funeral director will form a close relationship with you and your family. They will be available to talk by phone, email or in person, and will try to make themselves available when you need.

As well as getting to know you and those left behind, they will take the time to get to know your loved one and the role they played in the family. This will ensure they can support you in making informed decisions about each aspect of the funeral.

They will note down your 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.
