Arranging a Funeral
Once you have contacted us about a death, our dedicated team will guide you through all the funeral arrangements. We do everything on your behalf including the liaison with the Church, Cemetery, Crematorium and Minister. The only part of the arrangements we can not do for you is the death registration.
Once we have discussed your requirements we will write to you confirming all the details of the funeral.
Before making any arrangements, it is best to check the following:
a) If the deceased has left instructions in their will or a letter about their wishes.
b) There may be an organ donor card or a request for their body to be given to Medical Research.
c) Check whether they had paid into a funeral plan to cover all or some of the funeral expenses.
If there is no will, the next of kin should decide what to do. Advice can be given by a member of our team.
If someone dies abroad, or on a foreign ship or aircraft, you should register the death according to the local regulations of the country, and get a Death Certificate. Also register the death with the British Console so that a record can be kept in the UK.
