Arranging a Funeral
In order to make the funeral arrangements, we will need;
The full name of the person who has died;
Their full address;
Details of where and when they died;
Confirmation of whether the person who has died had a pacemaker fitted (pacemakers must be removed before the cremation).
You may decide you would like to visit the person who has died in the chapel of rest. Some people find it helps, and others find it upsetting to see someone they loved now dead. We can talk this through with you.
The funeral service can include anything you feel appropriate. Below we’ve listed the main things people usually consider when arranging a funeral service, but you should choose what is appropriate for you and the person who has died.
Things to consider when arranging the funeral service.

When you have decided, we will tell you all the costs and then make all the arrangements for you.
