What does a Dignity funeral director do?

Here at F W Collins & Son Funeral Directors in Wolverhampton, we are often asked what an average day for a funeral director looks like.
We support the family ...
F W Collins & Son Funeral Directors are available to call 24 hours a day, meaning you will always have access to care, guidance and advice on funeral services, no matter the time or day. At least one funeral director always remains on call outside of our normal opening hours.

The care provided to the departed is central to the funeral director role, but we also understand the importance of supporting those left behind. All our funeral directors are dedicated to providing the right care and support to families, guiding them through the administrative side of funeral planning and reassuring them in their time of need.
Supporting family members at a funeral service
In order to plan a meaningful and personal funeral service, our funeral directors will always take the time to get to know and understand exactly who the deceased were and what they meant to their loved ones.

As part of the support our funeral directors offer to all families experiencing grief and loss, they also help out with the administrative side of bereavement, including offering guidance on filling out paperwork correctly and on time.
Funeral procession at a woodland burial
The care our funeral directors offer the departed is universal, meaning every single person receives the same attentive treatment as part of our 'care of the deceased' process.

Our teams of funeral arrangers, embalmers and operatives always perform their duties to the highest of standards, from the moment they come into our care through to the funeral service and final goodbye. This ensures that loved ones are looked after in accordance with the family's wishes.
Funeral flowers placed on coffin lid
F W Collins & Son Funeral Directors is thankful to the Wolverhampton community 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 are always ready to give back to the local communities that they work with.
