Funeral directors, otherwise known as morticians or undertakers, help bereaved families every step of the way through a funeral, making this very difficult time easier and helping support you to make the event a true celebration of your loved one and their life.
They arrange everything, from taking care of all the staff, choosing funerals products, managing all the practical and legal requirements, and sorting everything out with the venue prior to the funeral event itself.
Whether you are looking for a traditional service or some other celebration of the life of a loved one, funeral directors offer a caring service for family, friends, and anyone else involved in organising a funeral.
Licensed directors are members of the national association of funeral directors and work for funeral homes to provide all the support you need through the whole process. Whether you are organising your mum’s funeral or just looking for advice or a funeral cost calculator, funeral partners limited can help you manage this, with staff available to help 24 hours a day.
The funeral director’s main role on the day of the wedding is to lead the procession and walk in front of the hearse.
This may not be for the entire route depending on the distance between the funeral home and the service, but it’s where the funeral director is at their most visible to people attending the funeral.
Below listed is some of the key things to think about when choosing a funeral director:
Recent figures show that a funeral using a funeral director costs, on average, £3,387. This cost can vary quite a bit, depending on location and the funeral arrangements. For example quotes in Reading can vary as much as £2,315. But it is possible to have a meaningful funeral for less.
We offer a range of different types of funeral services, from non-religious or multifaith funerals to a unique funeral plan for your quirky mother’s funeral, for example.
We can cater for any personal background, faith, or special wishes necessary, from any specific faith to a non-religious option for those who would prefer this.
Whether you are looking for cremation, a burial, a religious funeral, a woodland burial, a small-scale direct cremation, or some sort of alternative funeral services, our professional team is equipped to help you pick the perfect option and then to support you through every step of the process from planning to final service.
We can also accommodate any required budget for funeral costs. From our most popular form of standard funerals to unique and colourful requests, our team of professional funeral directors will be able to offer you all the help and support you need to arrange the perfect service to commemorate your loved one.
If you have any questions about our options, we can be contacted 24 hours a day to help.
There are several different options for funeral plans available in Reading at the moment, and the best way to choose one is to speak with a member of our team. However, we can explain some of the basics right here.
Nobody wants to talk about planning a funeral in advance, but if you do not take the time to do it early on, you might leave your family in financial difficulties and emotional distress.
Sorting out funeral plans in advance can save your loved ones a great deal of trouble, at the cost of a bit of upfront work from you.
Choosing the perfect plan for your preferences also allows you to ensure that your funeral is perfect for what you want, not what your nearest and dearest think you would want.
Often that is not important, but it can give you full peace of mind and certainty that everything will happen just the way you want.
One of the most popular options in Reading for funeral planning is the prepaid funeral plan. This is a great way to future-proof your planning, as paying upfront means that you are fully protected against any possible future increases in the cost of funerals.
Paying in advance ensures that even if circumstances change, your relatives will not be stuck trying to find the money to pay for your rites.
Choosing the right plan now can save a huge amount of stress for everyone else later, as well as avoid potential money problems further down the line.
With a range of services to suit the needs of any family, we are proud to be right at the top of the funeral director game.
No matter what sort of arrangement you are looking for, our team of directors are passionate professionals ready to help and support you through the difficult process of planning funerals.
We can help even the most nervous client through a difficult and upsetting time and offer a full range of services from initial planning to officiating the event itself. Your loved one is safe in our hands, and we will be sure to help you celebrate their life perfectly.
Below I have listed the main legal requirements in England and Wales:
There are no specific nationally-applicable licences that you will need to operate as a funeral director, so if your business activities are going to fall within the usual range of services offered by this type of business you don’t need to do anything further.
Usually, a cremation would cost a little less than a burial, however, sometimes costs can be similar.
A funeral notice is also commonly known by many as a Death Announcement, Obituary or Intimation.
It is intended to announce a person’s death and provides friends and family with details such as name, age, date of death, as well as the date, time and location of the funeral itself.
By law, all death in England and Wales must be registered within five days, unless you have a prior arrangement with the registrar.
Direct cremations are when the deceased is taken straight to the crematorium without a funeral ceremony.
Direct burials are when the deceased is taken straight to the cemetery without a funeral ceremony.
The funeral directors will take the body to the crematorium and place it in very cool storage space. This helps to keep the body preserved until the cremation.
Ultimately your plan will be cancelled, you won’t get any payments back and you’ll have no contribution towards your funeral at all.
