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?

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.

Gloria Elizabeth Grant 4 days ago

Very disappointed that the newspaper announcement was put in the wrong paper and by speaking to people since they said they would have attended had they known the funeral arrangements so lots of people left messages on face book for Ken and family,this is appreciated but the family feel that their attendance would have had more significant.

Barbara was fantastic in every way, excellent would have been the score if there was no mix up sending order of service proofs twice. However I would recommend to family as friends

On the whole my funeral arrangements were good but there was some issues with the funeral service due to the chosen humanist and the client was not given second proof , also someone visited Ellis in chapel when should not have as the person was let in before I was telephoned.
