What does a Dignity funeral director do?

So, what does a typical day at J Rymer Funeral Directors look like?
Support the family ...
There's no such thing as a 'typical' day at J Rymer Funeral Directors, but every day is 24 hours, meaning we are always on hand to offer support, guidance and information.

We take the greatest care when we tend to those who have passed, ensuring they are looked after with respect and dignity. This is an important part of our role, but supporting the families in our care is equally important to us. That's why our funeral directors take the time to reassure the family and help ease their burden during this difficult time. Those experiencing loss will have choices to make regarding the funeral, and we will aim to give them the confidence they need to reach those decisions.
Supporting family members at a funeral service
At J Rymer Funeral Directors, our services are designed to meet the exact requirements of the family. This is why we take the time to understand the passions and traits of the deceased, so we can give them a heartfelt and personal farewell.

As part of the support on offer, our funeral directors also help out with the administrative side of what to do when someone passes away. This includes guidance on what paperwork is required, along with advice to ensure it is completed correctly and within a timely manner.

Being part of Dignity means that our services are always delivered with respect and compassion to suit every unique family's individual requirements.

To ensure a loved one is looked after in accordance with the family's wishes, our teams of funeral arrangers, embalmers and operatives always perform their duties to the highest standards.

J Rymer Funeral Directors likes to take the time to thank and give back to the local community for allowing us to support them during their most difficult times. That is why one of our less recognised, but no less significant, 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 care for bereaved families and people who have passed away, being a part of Dignity means our funeral directors are always ready to assist and give back.
