Dignified funeral services in Handsworth

It is important, at this emotional time, that the farewell your loved one receives is the farewell you wish to give them. Asian Funeral Directors offers two funeral packages, meaning we can arrange a dignified service tailored to your specific needs.

The Full Service Funeral, which allows for a service tailored to your needs, gives you the opportunity to say farewell to your loved one in a way that is suited to you and your family. For a lower cost funeral, the Simple Funeral provides a complete service without compromising on the quality or care we provide. You can read more about our funeral services in Handsworth below.

What does a Dignity funeral director do?

Here at Asian Funeral Directors we are sometimes asked what a typical day for a funeral director looks like.
We support the family ...
Asian Funeral Directors in Handsworth is available 24 hours a day, with at least one person remaining on call outside of normal opening hours. This means there is always someone on hand to offer assistance when a loved one passes away.

Although care for the departed is a critical feature of the role, so is looking after those who have been left behind. Our funeral directors have a duty of care, part of which is to reassure the family and help to ease their burden. Those experiencing loss will have choices to make regarding the funeral, and a funeral director will always endeavour to ensure those decisions are realised in the most sensitive and practical way.
Supporting family members at a funeral service
Our funeral directors will always take time to understand as many personal details of the deceased as possible, including who they were and what they meant to the family. This is all part of the service Asian Funeral Directors provides to the Handsworth community.

A funeral director will also help out with the administrative side of bereavement, including offering guidance on what paperwork is required, along with advice on how to complete it correctly.
Funeral procession at a woodland burial
The care our funeral directors offer the departed is universal, with every single person receiving the same attentive treatment and high standards of service 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 always 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
Asian Funeral Directors is thankful to the community here in Handsworth for allowing us to support them during their most difficult times.

Whether it's working with local care homes, training the clergy in funeral procedure, or advising other public bodies on care for the deceased and bereaved, being a part of Dignity means our funeral directors take pride in giving a little back to the community.
