Dignified funeral services in Upton, whatever your preference

Arranging a funeral can be a difficult and emotional responsibility, but often the most important consideration for families is to ensure they give their loved ones the perfect send off. That’s why at Alex Taylor Funeral Directors, we offer two packages to choose from. So, no matter your personal requirements or financial situation, we can arrange a dignified funeral service for you.

For complete choice and a personalised service, we offer a Full Service Funeral, which allows you to say farewell to your loved one in the way you want. Or, choose our Simple Funeral to arrange a full funeral at a lower cost, without any compromise on the quality you receive.

What does a Dignity funeral director do?

At Alex Taylor Funeral Directors, we often find ourselves discussing what a funeral director does. People also ask us what a typical day looks like. You can find out more below.
Support the family ...
As we often say, there is no such thing as a 'typical' day at Alex Taylor Funeral Directors. Each is different from the last, and someone from the team remains on call outside of normal operating hours. This means guaranteed availability of a funeral director, 24 hours per day. So if somebody passes away, it doesn't matter if it's the middle of the afternoon or the middle of the night, because an experienced professional will be there to look after the deceased, support the family and help them begin the process of saying goodbye.

Our funeral directors have an important duty of care, not only to the deceased, but to the family and friends. Which is why we will offer reassurance and guidance to help them with the difficult and often emotive decisions that need to be made regarding funeral preparations.
Supporting family members at a funeral service
In order to support the family and ensure they do the best for their loved one, our funeral directors will spend time getting to know as much as they can about the deceased. This allows them to make recommendations about how the funeral can best reflect their life, as part of the service Alex Taylor Funeral Directors provides to the community of Upton.

We offer practical support too. Our funeral directors are trained to help with the administrative side of bereavement, an area that can often feel overwhelming for a family who have recently lost a loved one. This includes guidance to ensure that any necessary paperwork is completed correctly.

Our 'care of the deceased' process is there to ensure that every single person we attend to receives the same compassionate treatment. To make sure this is the case, our team of funeral arrangers, embalmers and operatives are all trained to perform their duties to the highest standards, and ensure loved ones are looked after in accordance with their family's wishes.

We at Alex Taylor Funeral Directors would like to take this opportunity to thank the wonderful community of Upton, for giving us the privilege of supporting them through the most difficult of times.

We take pride in the other duties we carry out in the area. Whether it's working with local care homes, training the clergy in the procedures associated with funerals, or advising public bodies on care for the deceased and bereaved, our Dignity funeral directors are always ready to assist and give something back.
