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.

I’m so grateful for everything that was done for mum, they thought of everything. I’ve never had to do this before so was a bit overwhelmed with what I had to do but Doves took total control and put me at my ease. Special thanks to Hannah

The staff that work at doves are absolutely fantastic & caring  From the very start with a warm welcome to a beautiful service. I believe they are no longer strangers or just  people who work for a funeral directors,  They are people who have come into my life and will be there for me if I need a chat or have a little cry, feeling that it's genuine is something truly special  I must have driven past doves over a million times in the past but now when I drive by it touches my heart
