Pype Hayes 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.

On behalf of the Tasewych family, I would like to thank Anne Smith and the team at the Solihull branch for their dedication and patience in helping us plan our moms funeral. If it wasn’t for Anne I don’t think our mom would have had the perfect send off she deserved. So I would like to thank you all again on behalf of the Tasewych family x

Trying to organise a funeral in 2 weeks and wanting it to be as perfect as it can be, is a tough call. Anne, James and Jayne and the rest of the team at Olton world tirelessly to get things just right for me. Thank you all so very much for all that you did to make my husbands send off go so very well. Kind regards Deborah Wort
