W S Bond Funeral Directors’ promise to you
When that time arises, we will be here for you. Whether it is the middle of the afternoon or early hours of the morning, we will be on hand to offer emotional support and practical advice on what to do now that a loved one has sadly passed away. You will be assigned a dedicated funeral arranger who will then arrange the collection of your loved one and help you take the next necessary steps to register the death. From there, at your own pace, they will assist you in making informed decisions alongside family so that they can arrange the funeral as you want it. We’ll be there for you up to the funeral date and beyond.
From the moment we bring your loved one into our care, we will treat them with the same kindness and respect as though they were a member of our own family. We love our Chiswick community and people of all faiths, cultures and beliefs will be looked after in line with their specific religious protocol by every member of our highly experienced team, including the arrangers, embalmers and operatives.
As well as liaising with all third parties and making the necessary arrangements on your behalf, your funeral director will also help you pass on the details of the funeral via an online Funeral Notice at no extra cost.
We have an excellent relationship with our local care homes. We support local events where possible, train the clergy in funeral procedure and we are always on hand to advise other public bodies on care for the deceased and bereaved.
