What does a Dignity funeral director do in a typical day?
Because we don't just care for those who have passed. We are also there to offer empathy and practical support to those who have been left behind. This is all part of our duty of care, which ensures that those experiencing loss will understand the process they must go through, and the choices they should make regarding their loved one.
That's not all. A practical part of the service our funeral directors offer is support with the often complex admin associated with bereavement. This could include information about the paperwork that must be completed and the timeframe within which it needs to be completed.
To make sure this is the case, our team is highly trained and takes pride in the quality of care they provide. From embalmers to those who arrange the funerals, and everyone in between.
Whether it's working with staff at a local care home, training a member of the clergy in best practice funeral procedure, or advising a public body to aid their work with the bereaved. Our Dignity funeral directors are always pleased to assist the wonderful organisations and people within our local community.
