My wife and brother died within 2 weeks of each other, probably from a genetic disease. My wife wanted to be buried next to her brother at Clandon Wood near Guildford. We live near Taunton and I selected Dignity so that their Taunton branch could handle my wife's post mortem and transportation to the Dignity branch at Guildford. My wife did not want to be handled or spoken about by anybody that did not know her. To that effect, family members, carried her and transported her from Clandon's pavilion to her grave and internment. Dignity's (Robert Ayling's) Funeral Director provided discreet direction to the 6 family pallbearers which was reassuring in an emotional and unrehearsed yet crucial procedure. Our relatives and friends all commented how well the funeral went and I have to thank Dignity for their professionalism and support.
