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.

I cannot praise Nicki and the team at the Droitwich branch enough. The professionalism, compassion and dignity shown throughout the whole process of organising my mothers funeral was second-to-non. From the very first phone call I felt supported and was kept updated regularly. Nicki was amazing and dealt with everything, which was greatly appreciated by myself and my family. Nothing was too much for her and I never felt rushed or pressurised.
I would highly recommend them.
Response from A. V. Band Funeral Directors
It is comforting to know that Nicola and the team were there to support you through this time and relieve some of the pressure through guidance and support. It has been a privilege to look after your Mother.

Wonderful service. Nicola from the droitwich branch bent over backwards to make the day perfect despite the many issues we came across, which was no fault of their own. She delt with all of it professionally and made me feel totally at ease. I cannot thank her enough for her hard work.

I wanted a non-religious funeral for my late husband with as little doom & gloom as possible & A V Band certainly delivered!
Nicki made the arrangements for me.She told me right at the start of our first meeting that nothing would be too much trouble & she certainly delivered on her promise.
I chose a 'Simple Funeral'.Mourners were informed that black apparel wasn't obligatory (I didn't wear black myself) and although Nicki remarked that the pall bearers would wear whatever I requested (within reason), I asked that they be dressed traditionally.The pall bearers treated my husband with the greatest respect both outside & inside where we had the service.
Nicki also put me in touch with a celebrant named Morgan who was superb.She conducted the service admirably, with grace, warmth and humour.She read my own tribute to my husband with perfect pitch & appropriate expression - I couldn't have done better myself.
All mourners, without exception, remarked what a wonderful occasion (given the circumstances) the service was.
I can't recommend A V Band highly enough.
Response from A. V. Band Funeral Directors
It means a great deal when people take the time to share their experience and to highlight individuals in the team who have made a difference. We know how special each person is and aim to convey this in all aspects of our work from the arrangements to the day of the service. It has been a privilege to support your family and care for your Husband. We are proud of the whole team.

Elizabeth made a stressful time very calm and unhurried. she helped with all aspects and kept me informed. This includes the celebrant, the printing, and the funeral. The funeral directors were professional and understanding too.

This is the second time my Family have used your services and on both occasions we have experienced an excellent level of service both on the physical elements and the attention to detail, I must express my thanks to Liz at Droitwich Spa, but also to the celebrant Mirion Wilson arranged by Liz (on both occasions) the reason for this is the pace and delivery are well timed and have the element of humor. All Good...

The kindness and care that everyone showed ensured my daughter and I were able to plan a funeral we felt fitting. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was taken care of without fuss or worry. In particular, Liz provided us with support and empathy as well as time to ensure our own wellbeing. At a difficult time, this was all so appreciated.
