Bournemouth 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.

Neil and everyone at George Scott Funeral Services provided exemplary care and service on all aspects of the planning as well as the actual day of our Father's funeral. Our family are beyond grateful to Neil for helping us give Dad such a wonderful service to celebrate his life.

I can’t express how grateful we were to Martin, he took the stress out of what was an extremely stressful time! He put us in touch with the most perfect celebrant who did a fantastic job celebrating our late father.

Fantastic service from start to finish during this difficult time. Our Dad was treated with the dignity he deserved in death. We were guided through the funeral process in a very supportive, friendly yet professional manner by all the staff who really do seem to care. The funeral parlour is non-assuming from the outside yet has a lovely, airy and light interior. A well-deserved five stars for all aspects of provision, with no hesitation. Thank you.

My family have now used George scott funeral directors for three members of our family and could not have ask for better service . They put every effort into making what is a very hard day into something beautiful and so well organised . They are never too busy to answer any questions or advise you along the way .I certainly would advise anyone to use this company when you are having to deal with saying goodbye to a loved one .
