What does a funeral director at Dignity do?

Here at Talbot Funeral Directors in Blackburn, people often ask what a typical day looks like.
Support for the family...

No day is a 'typical' day at Talbot Funeral Directors, but it is a 24 hour one. A funeral director will stay on call outside of our normal hours, meaning if somebody passes away at home during the night, there will be a member of the team available to meet the family and offer our care.

Our funeral directors will never neglect the family at this difficult time. In fact, we concentrate as much on providing support to those who have been left behind as we do on caring for the deceased. Because we have a fundamental duty of care, a large part of which is to reassure bereaved families and help ease the burden of planning the funeral.
Supporting family members at a funeral service
Often the most important consideration for a family arranging a funeral is ensuring they give their loved ones the send off they would have wanted. In order to make suggestions on arranging the service, our funeral directors take the time to understand more about the deceased and what they meant to the family. At Talbot Funeral Directors we view this part of the service as a huge privilege.

As part of the support our funeral directors offer to every family dealing with loss, they will also help with the completion of paperwork and other administration that is necessary during the course of bereavement.
Funeral procession at a woodland burial
Every single person receives the same attentive treatment while in our care. This is due to our 'care of the deceased' process, which is a key part of the service we offer.

To ensure a loved one is looked after in accordance with the family's wishes, our teams, including funeral arrangers, embalmers and other operatives, are trained to perform their duties to the highest standards. This they do from the first time they meet the family, through to the funeral service and beyond.

Talbot Funeral Directors would like to thank our local community for allowing us to support them during the toughest of times. We plan to uphold this important role in the community for many years to come.

From working with local care homes to advising public bodies on care for the deceased, as well as training the clergy in funeral procedure, being a part of Dignity gives our funeral directors a sense of pride that they are able to give back to the community.
