Herne Bay 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.

Keris was absolutely Brillant from beginning to end the funeral arrangements. The perfect person for this job ! 

Sally Stone 1 day ago

The service I received was excellent from start to finish. During the initial arrangements, Keris, the Funeral Arranger, was professional, knowledgeable and compassionate and made a difficult time more bearable. I was guided through the services available and was made fully aware of the costs involved, nothing was too much trouble. I was able to personalise the funeral and the Funeral Director and Bearers wore yellow ties on the day of the funeral which was Mum's favourite colour. All the mourners said that it was a lovely funeral. I am very grateful to Whitstable Funeralcare and would highly recommend them.
