The choice of a firm of funeral directors is important, as families should feel comfortable and confident with them. A Funeral Director may be known to the family personally, may be recommended by a friend, by a GP ,or perhaps by a religious or secular advisor, or perhaps have a long established good reputation in their local area. They are here to help families through a very difficult and traumatic time.
Funeral Directors are approachable and sincere in ensuring the arrangements that need to be made will run as smoothly as possible.
The National Association of Funeral Directors have a code practice and members of these can provide an estimate of costs – their own and those fees they will pay on your behalf and add to the account.
Funeral directors can make all the arrangements and work with families for the planning and personalising the funeral for burial or cremation, religious or secular service.
