What does a Dignity funeral director do?

Here at Gilderson & Sons Funeral Directors, people sometimes ask us what our typical day looks like and what we actually do.
Support the family ...
At least one funeral director remains on call outside of normal opening hours, so there's always someone available to collect the deceased if they pass away at home, no matter what time of day.

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.
Supporting family members at a funeral service
Focused on providing a high-quality funeral that reflects what the deceased may have wanted, our funeral directors take the time to understand who they were and what they meant to their family and friends. This is all part of the service Gilderson & Sons Funeral Directors provides to the Forest Gate community it is proud to be a part of.

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.

The care our funeral directors offer is universal, so every single person receives the same attentive treatment as part of our 'care of the deceased' process.

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.

Gilderson & Sons Funeral Directors is thankful to the Forest Gate community for allowing us to support them during the most difficult of times and we aim to demonstrate our gratitude.

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.
