What does a Dignity funeral director do?
Care for the departed is an essential feature of our role, but those left behind are of equal importance. Our duty of care as funeral directors is to reassure the family and help ease their burden, while supporting them when making difficult choices.
As part of the support our funeral directors offer to every family dealing with loss, we also help with the administrative side of bereavement. We will give support and advice to ensure any paperwork is completed correctly and where necessary, within a timely manner.
To ensure a loved one is looked after in accordance with the family's wishes, our funeral arrangers, embalmers and operatives endeavour to perform their duties to the highest standards, from the moment of collection through to the funeral service and the final goodbye.
From working with local care homes and training the clergy in funeral procedure, to advising other public bodies on care for the deceased and bereaved, being a part of Dignity means our funeral directors are always ready to assist and give a little something back.
