Francis Chappell & Sons Funeral Directors will help you to organise a respectful funeral for your loved one. We know how important it is to hold a dignified funeral service that doesn’t cost the earth. That’s why we give you the choice of two different packages, depending on your needs.

What does a Dignity funeral director do?

Wondering what a funeral director does or what a typical day in the life looks like? Find out from the team at Francis Chappell & Sons Funeral Directors.
Support the family ...
At Francis Chappell & Sons Funeral Directors, every day is different. At least one funeral director remains on call outside of normal opening hours, meaning we are available 24 hours a day. If somebody passes away at home during the night, there is always a professional ready and waiting to attend to the deceased, meet the family and provide support.

While care for the departed is a crucial part of the role, it is equally important to consider their loved ones. As part of our duty of care, we act to support those left behind and help to ease their concerns at this difficult time. It is inevitable that those experiencing loss will have choices to make regarding the funeral, and we are on hand to give them the confidence they need to reach those decisions.
Supporting family members at a funeral service
We want to make personal recommendations for the service, so our funeral directors take the time to understand who has passed and what they meant to the family. This is an important part of the service Francis Chappell & Sons Funeral Directors provides to the Lewisham community.

We're also available to help the family with organising the funeral. There is paperwork to complete before the service can take place, but our funeral directors see it as part of their role to help ease this stress and support those left behind.
Funeral procession at a woodland burial
The care our funeral directors offer the departed is unparalleled, with each and every person receiving the same compassionate and attentive treatment as part of our 'care of the deceased' process.

To ensure a loved one is looked after in accordance with the family's wishes, our teams perform their duties to the highest standards, from the funeral service right through to the final farewell.
Funeral flowers placed on coffin lid
Francis Chappell & Sons Funeral Directors is thankful to the community here in Lewisham, for turning to us at this difficult time. That is why we'd like to extend our gratitude for allowing us to help.

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 is a source of pride for our funeral directors. It means we are part of a team that is always ready to assist local people and give something back.
