What does a Dignity funeral director do?

Here at Abbey Funeral Directors in Hadleigh we are sometimes asked what a funeral director does, or, what does a typical day look like for a funeral director?
Support the family ...

Abbey Funeral Directors ensures that at least one person remains on call outside of normal opening hours, meaning someone is on hand 24 hours a day. So no matter what time of day a loved one passes, one of our funeral directors will be available to collect the deceased and begin offering support to the family.

Care for the departed is integral to the role of a funeral director, but of equal importance are those left behind. We have a duty of care that involves reassuring families and helping to ease their burden. Those experiencing grief and loss will have important decisions to make regarding funeral arrangements, and our team is there to help them to reach those decisions with confidence.
Supporting family members at a funeral service
To ensure a funeral service reflects the life of the deceased, our funeral directors take time to understand who they were as a person and what they meant to those closest to them. This is all part of the service Abbey Funeral Directors provides to the Hadleigh community it is dedicated to helping.

But it doesn't end there. As part of the support our funeral directors offer to every family in our care, they also provide guidance on the administrative side of bereavement. This might include advising on paperwork that is required, along with ensuring it is completed correctly and on time.

Central to our 'care of the deceased' process is our dedication to looking after every person with respect and compassion. Our team of funeral arrangers, embalmers and operatives perform their duties to the highest standards, ensuring that those who have passed away are cared for in accordance with their family's wishes, from the moment of collection to the final goodbye.

Abbey Funeral Directors is thankful to the community here in Hadleigh for allowing us to support them during their most difficult times. That is why it is important to us that we express our gratitude. From training the clergy in funeral procedure to advising on the best way to care for the bereaved and deceased, Dignity funeral directors are always ready to give a little something back.
