What does a Dignity funeral director do?

Here at W English & Son Funeral Directors in South Woodford, we are sometimes asked what a typical day for a funeral director looks like.
Support the family...
No two days are the same at W English & Son Funeral Directors, but one guarantee is that someone is always on hand to offer support at what is a very difficult time. At least one funeral director remains on call outside of normal opening hours, so regardless of when a loved one passes, someone will be available to begin helping the family.

As a funeral director, care for the departed is a fundamental part of the role, but of equal importance is those left behind. We help to reassure the family and ease some of their burden, supporting them through the process of making decisions regarding funeral arrangements.
Supporting family members at a funeral service
To ensure our services are as personal as possible, our funeral directors spend time with family members to understand who their loved one was and what they meant to them. This is all part of the service we provide to the South Woodford community we are proud to have served since 1817.

Dignity funeral directors are also on hand to help with the administrative side of bereavement, offering guidance on paperwork, how to complete it correctly and ensure it is submitted in a timely manner.
Funeral procession at a woodland burial
At W English & Son Funeral Directors, we offer the highest quality care to those who have passed away, with every person receiving the same 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 of funeral arrangers, embalmers and operatives perform their duties to the highest standards, from the moment of collection, through to the funeral service and final goodbye.
Funeral flowers placed on coffin lid
It is important for us to give something back to the community we serve. We work with local care homes and advise public bodies on how to care for the deceased and bereaved. We also help to train the local clergy in funeral procedure.

W English & Son Funeral Directors is thankful to the families of South Woodford for allowing us to help make a difficult time a little easier.
