What does a Dignity funeral director do?
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.
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.
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.
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.
