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 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.

Could not the fault the service provided. All our wishes were met and more. Staff were excellent considerate,helpful and knowledgeable. Julie made sure Irene's funeral was how we wanted it to be and was fully supportive with every step.

The staff could not do enough to help. They were extremely friendly and definitely went above and beyond to deliver a quality service. We were looked after from the beginning until after the funeral and I genuinely feel that nothing was too much to ask.  Thank you.

Fantastic service and lovely people. Had no issues at all and would highly recommend. Offered great flexibility and really went above and beyond what i was expecting during such a difficult time. I very quickly knew i had made the right decision in choosing them!

I can't thank Keith and Jen enough for the help and support they have given me and my family during our tragic time of not only losing our Mother but our Step Father too. Nothing was too much trouble for them even urging us to pick up the phone no matter what time; day or night if there was anything troubling us. The chapel of rest was the most lovely peaceful room and we were happy to have our parents rest there before the funeral. Keith made sure everything we'd asked for after the funeral was brought back and passed on to us. Keith and Jen took a lot of the worry and stress out of what was already a difficult time, even helping us with the obituary which helped us a lot as we'd never been through anything similar before. As a family we will be sure to let everyone know how wonderful they were and will recommend Saint and Forster to anyone who has a difficult time to come. Thank you so much Keith and Jen .

Firstly, you’ve misspelled the name of the deceased. Not a good start. However the attention to detail and their care and kindness could not be bettered. Can confidently recommend them.
