What does a Dignity funeral director do?

Here at A V Band Funeral Directors in Worcester we are sometimes asked the questions, “what does a funeral director do?” and, “what is involved in a typical day for a funeral director?”
Support the family ...
There is no such thing as a typical day at A V Band. We are committed to making at least one funeral director available out of hours, meaning no matter what time someone passes away, there will be a trained professional who can offer support.

While care for the departed is a critical feature of a funeral director's role, there is more to it. In fact, we're dedicated to supporting the family and helping them through what can be an emotional time, particularly when it comes to making decisions about the funeral service. That's why our funeral directors aim to give them the reassurance and guidance they need.
Supporting family members at a funeral service
Our funeral directors take time to find out as much as they can about the deceased from the family's point of view. Only by doing this can we expect to make recommendations about the type of funeral service that would fit with the wishes of the family and their loved one. This is all part of the service A V Band provides to the Worcester community it serves.

But it doesn't end there. As part of the ongoing support our funeral directors offer to every family dealing with loss, they also help with the administrative side of bereavement. They will take them through the paperwork that is required, giving guidance on how to complete it and help to ensure everything is done in a timely manner.

Our funeral directors are trained to offer unparalleled care to the departed. They make it their duty to ensure that every single person receives the same attentive treatment as part of our 'care of the deceased' process.

These funeral directors, alongside the funeral arrangers, embalmers and operatives, work to ensure that loved ones are looked after in accordance with the family's wishes. They always perform their duties to the highest standards, from the moment they collect the deceased through to the funeral service and final goodbye.

A V Band Funeral Directors is thankful to the community here in Worcester for allowing us to support them during the most difficult of times. It is a privilege that we do not take lightly.

We are always happy to assist and give a little something back. Whether it's working with care homes, training the clergy in funeral procedures, or advising public bodies on care for the deceased and bereaved, we believe in being more than just a funeral directors, repaying the trust our community has placed in us.
