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 liaised with both Sharyn and Mark whilst arranging my father's funeral. Both were compassionate and professional and guided me through the process. Sharyn was particularly helpful as we struggled to find a suitable date for the Service. At the crematorium, the under takers were professional and efficient. I would recommend Woodhatch Funeral care.

Amanda who dealt with us was very professional at all times. Our family was very happy with the way she answered all our questions and was at the end of a phone if we needed her at anytime. The whole process was done without any stress and tea and sympathy was much appreciated. We would happily use your services again. Thank you from all the Pauley family.

Amanda was extremely helpful and went the extra mile to ensure everything ran smoothly.  We can’t thank her enough.   Sam, the Funeral Director on the day and the others were excellent.

I felt forgotten about. I had no reminders about things as promised and I felt the lady who dealt with me was unprofessional. It wasn’t good enough .  The funeral bearers and drivers were excellent as was the minister.
