Bridge Of Don Funeral Directors


Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do when someone dies?

When someone dies you need to get a Medical Certificate of Cause of Death from a doctor, register their death and choose a funeral director to arrange their funeral. The Registration Office will give you a Death Certificate and Certificate for Burial or Cremation (GR021 in Northern Ireland).

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

How much does a funeral cost?

The cost of a funeral depends on where you are in the UK and whether you choose a burial or a cremation. Natural burial is becoming increasingly popular, but can often be more expensive than burial in a traditional cemetery. The cost of coffins, flowers, catering and transport also varies a lot. There is also an almost unlimited list of options for personalising a service, such as professional funeral singers or a motorcycle-hearse. You can compare the price of funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

Would highly recommend Mark Shaw, staff were really efficient and helpful. Made things easier at a difficult time.

Sadly this was the second time in a very short period of time that we had to use the services of Mark Shaw but as previously, the level of customer care and compassion was just right & they were flexible and understanding of our needs. A family member commented, "the funeral directors were very good, you hardly noticed that they were there", I think that says a lot.

Margaret McIntosh 3 years ago

Very good indeed.  We could not have asked for better.  Everything was done as we wanted and with care and compassion.   The cars were fantastic and the flowers beautiful.  Would recommend Mark Shaw highly.

Claire Harris 3 years ago

We are very grateful to Mark and his colleagues for helping us meet our sister's wishes for care after her death and her burial. Mark treated our requests with sensitivity and professionalism and without judgement, offering advice when we asked or were unsure, but never imposing his own opinions, to deliver a highly personalised service. At the burial, where we wanted to do much of it ourselves, he and his colleagues were reassuring and supportive, there when we needed them and otherwise unobtrusive.
