We are modern funeral directors, committed to supporting the wellbeing of every bereaved individual.
This includes step-by-step guidance at every stage, if that is what you need
Many people are unsure about what to expect after someone has died and are not sure who they can call for support. If can be a very distressing time and that can be made worse if you don’t know what to do. With a little bit of information and guidance the steps can be broken down into manageable stages and it will quickly feel as if all the practical aspects are under control and being dealt with effectively.
After someone dies there are a number of people who need to be informed and paperwork that needs to be completed. For example, a death certificate needs to be obtained and the death will need to be registered with the registrar. Many people also choose to take steps to locate a will or details of a pre-paid funeral plan at an early stage, as both of these may be relevant to the funeral arrangements. There may also be suppliers, support agencies or a landlord to inform.
Alongside these practical steps, it is often helpful to start to think about funeral arrangements. Gathering information about the documented wishes of the person who has died and remembering any more casual comments that they made about what they liked or disliked about funerals they had attended can be really helpful and guide many of the decisions that you will make thereafter. Similarly, we would recommend finding out about what options are available to you locally because this knowledge will help you to create a funeral which feels right for your unique circumstances.
The information pages we have provided will give you some basic information but every situation is unique so when you call us we will give you personalised guidance to support you, your friends and family.
