What You Need to Know in Times of Bereavement

When the death occurs at home, if it is sudden and the person has not been under the care of their G.P. you would need to call an ambulance so that the death can be referred to the coroner. The coroner’s officer will help and advise you as to what will happen next.

The following questions have been compiled to help you think about the kind of decisions that will need to be made when arranging a funeral. Please don’t worry, we are here to help you all the way.

  • Will I choose a burial or cremation?
  • A church service first or a cemetery or crematorium chapel?
  • Would I prefer a Minister, Priest or Humanist ? (I.E. religious or non religious)
  • What kind of coffin would I choose?

A traditional, solid timber, wicker, cardboard or colourful coffin? Again all the different types will be explained to you. Would I like my loved one to wear their own clothes or let Kenna and Turner Independent Funeral Directors provide a gown or robe? These are all little points which help to make the funeral arrangement totally personal to you.

Just please remember not to be overwhelmed, you do not have to consider all or any of these questions until you feel ready. There is no rush, you are not under any pressure. We will be glad to discuss everything in detail when we meet up with you. We will explain costs all along the line so you are fully aware of what it is all going to cost and a written estimate will always be given.
