Before the funeral

Once everything has been organized by our director, we will write to the person designated as the principle contact to confirm the main details about the funeral. If it wasn't given at the time the arrangements were made, we will also provide a written estimate of all the known funeral costs with this letter.

Although we are here to ease the burden as much as possible, there still may remain things for those responsible for the arrangements to do, so we suggest the following list is considered:

  ~ Notify relatives and friends of the deceased about the details of
  the funeral, make sure they know where the funeral location is
  and let them know if flowers may be sent or if donations are
  preferred.

  ~ Arrange for the death to be registered and if issued with a
  'Green Certificate' deliver this to us as soon as possible.

  ~ Arrange to meet the person conducting the service as quickly as
  possible and think about what needs to be said in tribute of the
  deceased. We provide in our letter of confirmation a contact
  number of the minister or celebrant if they haven't been in touch
  yet.

  ~ Choose those items that were left undecided after the meeting
  with our director (e.g.music, number of limousines, etc.).

  ~ Order your own floral tributes if applicable.

  ~ Organise the caterer or hotel for the reception after the funeral if
  this is required.

  ~ Pay your last respects to the deceased with a visit to the Chapel
  of rest, if desired.

  ~ Start to notify government departments, clubs and other
  organisations about the death. For more information click on the
  adjacent link.

  ~ If relatives and friends are planning to follow the funeral cortege
  in their own transport, ask us for maps of the route we propose to
  use to get to the service venue.
