What does a Dignity funeral director do?

Here at Ernest Larner & Son in Putney, people sometimes ask what a typical day for a funeral director looks like.
Here at Ernest Larner & Son in Putney, people sometimes ask what a typical day for a funeral director looks like.
There's no such thing as a 'typical' day at Ernest Larner & Son, but it is a 24 hour day. At least one funeral director remains on call outside of normal opening hours, meaning that someone is always available to collect the deceased, meet the family and offer support.

Although care for the departed is a critical feature of the role, of equal importance are those left behind. Our funeral directors have a duty of care which involves helping the family to make important decisions regarding funeral arrangements.
Supporting family members at a funeral service
A Dignity funeral director always takes the time to understand who the deceased was and what they meant to the family. This allows them to make informed recommendations as to how the funeral could reflect what the loved one might have wanted. It is an important part of the service Ernest Larner & Son Funeral Directors provides to the Putney community it is proud to serve.

We also offer support with some of the administrative aspects concerning the passing of a loved one. This includes providing guidance on paperwork, ensuring it is completed correctly, and making sure forms are submitted in a timely manner.
Funeral procession at a woodland burial
The care our funeral directors offer the departed is universal, with every single person receiving the same attentive treatment as part of our 'care of the deceased' process.

A team of highly skilled and experienced personnel, which also includes funeral arrangers, embalmers and operatives, perform their duties with professionalism and respect, from the moment of collection to the final goodbye.
Funeral flowers placed on coffin lid
Ernest Larner & Son Funeral Directors is thankful to the community in Putney for allowing us to support them during their most difficult times. That's why one of our most important, although sometimes less recognised, duties is expressing our gratitude.

Whether it's working with local care homes, training the clergy in funeral procedure, or advising other public bodies on how to appropriately support the deceased and bereaved, being a part of Dignity means always giving something back.
