Purley 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.

Beth was so helpful in very many ways, with advice on so much more than just the funeral arrangements. Emotional guidance on how we’d likely be feeling at each stage, suggestions on what could help, she was amazing. Always available when needed. Professional but very human. Perfect for what we needed. She recommended an excellent celebrant and the order of service sheets looked fabulous (which Beth chased us for details of so nicely but persistently). She is the perfect person for this job. Knowledgeable and empathetic. The funeral itself was emotional, very much all about Dad and done with dignity, humanity, love and care. Social distancing respected.

Everything happened smoothly & to plan. Staff were professional & caring. They looked after us exceedingly well before & on the day of my mother's funeral. Thank you.

Going through something so horrendous in your life and not having a clue what to do really helps when you have someone like Beth from Alan Greenwood helping your every step of the way.   I was in a mess when I went into soo Beth and she immediately put me at ease, she talked me through step by step and nothing was too much trouble.   I can not express the gratitude I have for this lady, she’s amazing.
