Tong Street 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.

From the moment you have to make that first phone call you know you're in safe hands. Every member of staff we dealt with was friendly, compassionate, respectful and professional. We were guided along every step of the arrangements that had to be made and could seek advice at any time. On the day of the funeral, Helen and her team were with us throughout, calmly steering us through and always on hand. I would fully recommend George Brooke Ltd to anyone - thanks to them our Mum's funeral day was a lovely, very fitting tribute that we shall always remember and be grateful for.
