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.

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.

Thank you for all the help on the day, very straightforward with the provided funeral plan. Michael is just wondering about the ashes, just unsure who notifies us. Many thanks M & J Selwood

We were so impressed with the service from Handforth Funeral Care. From start to finish the service was exceptional. They comforted and guided us every step of the way. I would like to praise Alison as the Funeral Director she was incredible.

Funerals are never events any one looks forward too, they are part of a journey but always tinged with sadness. The coop funeral care service dealt with the passing of our dear father with such professional care it eased our pain somewhat and made the process a little easier. Rebecca was our assigned funeral director and she conducted the process like a well oiled machine. It seemed to happen in the background without much intervention. She could be called on at any time if we had any questions. Her voice was rather soothing and full of compassion. we used the Oldham branch and the team there where second to none. They all understood our needs which was most grateful by all our family. Thank you very much.

From the start the customer service and care given to myself and my family by Danielle and the rest of the team was second to none. We are very grateful to all the help and consideration given to us from the initial consultation with Danielle to the actual funeral on 20th November which was conducted by Peter, and also the help given at the Chapel of Rest by Andy.
