What does a Dignity Funeral Director do?

We are sometimes asked what a typical day at Ashton Funeral Directors looks like; or, what do your funeral directors do?
Support the family ...
We are on call 24 hours a day, which means that we are always here to offer support. One of our funeral directors is always on hand to start the process of arranging a funeral whenever needed.

Organising the funeral of a loved one can be an overwhelming time. While tending to the deceased is integral to our role as funeral directors, we also understand that family members may also need support. We offer a helping hand to those in need, to support them emotionally and practically during this difficult period.
Supporting family members at a funeral service
Knowing what kind of person the deceased was and listening to stories about their lives and values means that we can create a service that genuinely reflects who they were in life.

Dealing with the formalities of the funeral can be daunting during this difficult time. We guide families through the logistics of arranging a funeral, including advice on paperwork and burial or cremation costs.

Our 'care of the deceased' process makes sure that everyone who comes into our care will be looked after with the utmost respect and attention.

We are proud of our experienced team of professional funeral operatives, embalmers and arrangers who work with dedication to ensure that funeral arrangements are made in line with the family's wishes, from the service to the last goodbye.

We wish to express our gratitude to the Balham community for allowing us to support them during their most difficult times.
