What does a Dignity funeral director do?
While care for the departed is an essential part of the role, we at Gilderson & Sons believe that those left behind are of equally important. Our funeral directors have a particular duty of care to reassure the family, help ease their burden and support them in making difficult choices.
As part of the support and care our funeral directors offer to every person dealing with loss, they also help with the administrative side of bereavement. This includes guidance and advice on any necessary paperwork.
Our funeral arrangers, embalmers and operatives strive to perform their duties to the highest standards. From the moment of collection through to the funeral service and final goodbye, our teams make sure that a loved one is taken care of in accordance with the family's wishes.
Whether it's working with local care homes, training the clergy, or 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 to the community.
