What does a Dignity funeral director do?

Here at Francis Chappell & Sons Funeral Directors in East Dulwich, we are sometimes asked what a funeral director does, as well as what a typical day for a funeral director looks like.
We support the family...
Francis Chappell & Sons Funeral Directors has professionals on call 24 hours a day.

Our focus is not only on the care and respect of the deceased, but also on providing support to the family going through the grieving process. Our funeral directors have a duty of care to reassure the family and help ease their burden in difficult times. Those experiencing loss will have choices to make regarding the funeral, and a funeral director will aim to give them the confidence they need to reach those decisions.
Supporting family members at a funeral service
Our funeral directors will always take the time to get a feel for who the deceased was and what was important to them, in order to provide the most meaningful service possible. This is all part of the funeral services in East Dulwich that Francis Chappell & Sons provides.

Our East Dulwich funeral costs don't just cover the service and preparation, but also the support our funeral directors offer to every family dealing with the loss of a loved one, as we feel this is of equal importance when it comes to planning a funeral and honouring a loved one's memory.
Funeral procession at a woodland burial
The care provided through our East Dulwich funeral services is universal, meaning we uphold the same sensitivity and respect for everyone we support.

To ensure a loved one is looked after in accordance with the family's wishes, our teams, which also include funeral arrangers, embalmers and operatives, always perform their duties to the highest of standards, from the moment of collection through to the funeral service and the final goodbye.
Funeral flowers placed on coffin lid
Francis Chappell & Sons Funeral Directors is thankful to the entire East Dulwich community for allowing us to support them during the most difficult of times. That is why one of our less recognised - but no less significant duties, is expressing our gratitude to the communities we support.

Whether it's working with local care homes, training the clergy in funeral procedure, or advising other public bodies on care for the deceased and bereaved, being a part of Dignity means we are ready to assist with specific needs and give a little something back.
