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.

From the moment we walked into to Ewell Village office Sylvia made us feel at ease and was extremely informative about the different options we had for our Fathers burial. Sylvia made all the phone calls to arrange the day and nothing was too much trouble. Constantly keeping us in the loop of arrangements and progress with order of service etc. On the day Adam Greenwood and his team were very professional and again made us feel at ease. Paul and I received a first class service and are grateful to them all. Julie and Paul (John Kenny's Daughter and Son)

My family & I thought Alan Greenwood & Sons of North Cheam provided an excellent service. Everything was carried out to an exceedingly high standard. Would have no hesitation in recommending their services.
