We know that at a time like this you may feel a little lost. Don’t worry, we’re here to guide you through the whole process. In this section we’ll help you find the answers to all the very practical questions you might have such as “how do I pay for the funeral?”; “what are the step by step procedures I need to follow to arrange a funeral?” and “what to do if the death has occurred overseas”. You’ll also discover that a funeral is about choices. So this section also covers issues such as “Burial or cremation?”; “What type of coffin?” and “Green funerals”. If you don’t find the answer here, it will only be a phone call away.
We understand that at a time of great loss even the simplest of practicalities feels like a burden. That’s why we are ready to step in and help immediately, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Our trained and qualified staff are always on hand to assist you in your time of need and help you with some of the more difficult decisions. We are available to meet you in your own home, or, if you would prefer, you could meet us at one of our offices. You simply have to call us to arrange a time and we’ll do the rest.
