Christmas Memorial Service
At F M & J Wait Funeral Directors, we understand how difficult this year has been for everyone, especially for families and friends who have lost someone dear to them during the pandemic.

As part of our service to those that we have had the privilege to care for, we hold a Christmas memorial service in memory of loved ones. While this hasn’t been possible this year, we have an online memorial service for families and friends.

The service has been recorded at the Lichfield Methodist Church and is led by Rev Roger Baker, Celebrant Mitchell West and our staff, Funeral Manager Scott Mills, Funeral Director Adrian Davies and Funeral Service Arranger Linda Owen, on behalf of all our colleagues.

Frequently asked questions

  • When someone dies, the first steps will depend on how and where the person passed away. Our step-by-step guides will walk you through the practical steps. For additional support and personal advice, please get in touch with us.


  • You don't have to make an appointment at our funeral homes. However, doing so will ensure that someone can be available to cater to your needs. When arranging a funeral, our Funeral Directors are happy to visit you in your own home, if required.


  • Third party funeral costs are additional charges which we will manage for you and attach to your single invoice. Get in touch with us to confirm costs and plan a funeral to fit your budget.


  • If you choose to arrange the funeral with us, you will be given the option of a complimentary Funeral Notice. We will set it up for you using the details discussed during the arrangements. All we need is an email address.


  • Dignity Funeral Plans let you pay for your funeral in advance and at today's price. It's a way of taking control of the unexpected, setting out the arrangements and limiting the costs by paying for the services included in the funeral plan upfront.

Myself and family used the Lichfield branch for my nans funeral, I’d never planned a funeral before but Wendi was fantastic she helped me with everything, if i had a problem or questions she was there at the end of the phone to help me. I couldn’t have asked for a better person. All the people that were involved on the day did a brilliant job and everything went smoothly.
So thank you all at F M & J WAITS
