What does a funeral director at Dignity do?
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.
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.
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.
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.
