Southend On Sea 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.

Dealing with Louise in the office and on the phone was a very good experience  during a very difficult time for my family and I. A big thank you to Scott and the rest of the team who on the day could not have been more helpful and fully understood the mood of the day.

Everything was perfect. Louise was amazing leading up to and on the day of my Mums funeral.  Scott and the others were also amazing on the day and made sure the day ran smoothly. I cannot recommend them enough.

Professional service, kind and thoughtful. They did everything perfect on the day of my Dad's funeral. Nothing was too much trouble. Would recommend Stibbards to family & friends

The fact I have used Stibbards for the third time in less than two years says it all.  They ensure everything runs smoothly and are quick to respond to questions. I wouldn’t use anyone else.
