Why Dignity Funeral Directors?

Dignity Funeral Directors in Handsworth and across UK, is nationally accredited by the NAFD (National Association of Funeral Directors).
Here for you 24/7
We are Handsworth’s local funeral directors. As part of our commitment to always be there for our local families, we have at least one funeral director on call outside of normal opening hours. So, whenever someone needs us, whether that is at 3pm or 3am, we are here to bring their loved one into our care, meet the family and begin to offer our support.

We are here 24 hours a day, every day, to help you navigate the first steps you will need to take when someone passes away. We will also be here after the funeral to ensure your wellbeing.
Supporting family members at a funeral service
Taking care of those dearly departed is one of our core roles, a role that we take seriously by ensuring they are looked after in accordance with the family’s wishes and that our facilities are maintained to the highest standards.

However, those experiencing loss will have some difficult choices to make regarding the funeral arrangements. It is our funeral directors’ honoured duty to reassure and listen to the family and support them, however they can, to enable them to make the funeral arrangement decisions confidently.

Additionally, our funeral directors are here to support with the more administrative side of bereavement. This includes guidance on what paperwork is required, along with advice to ensure it is completed correctly and in a timely manner.

Here at our Handsworth funeral home, we have been serving our local community for years; forming industry ties and tangible connections with the families we serve.

We are grateful to be part of a community that trusts us in their time of need. It is something we do not take lightly, and we do all we can to give back and show our appreciation.

We are always open to helping local charities in any way we can and take part in outreach activities to help train local clergy in funeral procedures and advise care homes and other public bodies on how to best support those recently bereaved. We love to support local charities and have made arrangements to enable efficient donations to charities in lieu of flowers in the memory of those dearly departed.
