Frequently asked questions
When someone dies, the first steps will depend on how and where the person passed away. Our step-by-step guides will walk you through the practical steps. For additional support and personal advice, please get in touch with us.
You don't have to make an appointment at our funeral homes. However, doing so will ensure that someone can be available to cater to your needs. When arranging a funeral, our Funeral Directors are happy to visit you in your own home, if required.
Third party funeral costs are additional charges which we will manage for you and attach to your single invoice. Get in touch with us to confirm costs and plan a funeral to fit your budget.
If you choose to arrange the funeral with us, you will be given the option of a complimentary Funeral Notice. We will set it up for you using the details discussed during the arrangements. All we need is an email address.
Dignity Funeral Plans let you pay for your funeral in advance and at today's price. It's a way of taking control of the unexpected, setting out the arrangements and limiting the costs by paying for the services included in the funeral plan upfront.
Reviews of our services
I can not fault the service that was provided. All staff went out of their way to explain the procedure and I was extremely grateful for their advice.
The service at the crematorium was beautiful and everyone commented on it.
I can not praise everyone involved enough for their dedication to my late loving husband.
A wonderful service provided.
Our sincere thanks to all staff members & to roger for his sincere address.
A perfect send off for my mum.
Many many thanks jackie &john
Thanks again guys, from the bottom of our hearts 💕
My Nan had pre-paid for a funeral plan which was her way of making sure the family didn’t have to worry financially but it was also nice for us to know that all the choices made in the plan were what nan would have wanted so that the service would have been to her liking. Kim was excellent at telling us exactly what was included in the plan and showed us all the choices nan had made.
The staff at FC Woods kept in touch with any updates and always answered any questions really quickly.
Each and every member of staff from Kim and Frances in FC Woods to Carol the funeral director to Linda the celebrant- all were amazing, kind and considerate and helped what is a very sad time run as trouble free as possible to give my Nan the send off we all wanted and that she deserved.
We couldn’t have asked for anything more.
Thank you x
On the day of the funeral the staff were extremely professional and knowledgeable which made a difficult day a lot easier.
