What Does a Funeral Director Do?

A funeral director will be your main point of contact while planning your loved one’s funeral. They will assist with filling out all legal paperwork including registering the death, they will also liaise with the different parties involved in planning a funeral. They usually work around the clock and will pick up the body of the person who has died and take them to the funeral home where they will then make preparations before the funeral. This article provides more information on what a funeral director does.

Help with Funeral Planning

Funeral Directors are experts in assisting families with funeral arrangements. There are many different types of funeral directors, depending on the wishes of the deceased.

It is important that a funeral reflects the life and beliefs of the person who has died. Death is an extremely personal subject, and each culture or family may hold their own traditions. A good funeral director can advise on the best and most appropriate way to honour any requests outside of the mainstream.

Funeral Costs in Ealing

Funerals can vary greatly, dependent on scale and any additional features. The more scaled back and simple the funeral is, the lower the cost usually is.

The comparison tool includes the cost of the funeral director’s services, such as collecting the body. It also includes the cost of keeping the body at the funeral home and transporting it to the service. The price will also include a simple coffin, however for any specific coffins additional costs are likely to occur. Each individual funeral director will be happy to advise you on the cost of your loved one’s ceremony.

There are usually other separate costs associated with funerals. This will include the wake, usually held after the service, and any floral tributes to adorn the coffin. Other costs to consider include cremation or burial fees, plus fees charged by the celebrant for conducting the service.

Attended Funeral vs Unattended Funeral

When searching for funerals, you may come across prices for both attended and unattended funerals. Unattended funerals are usually much simpler than a traditional funeral, and normally take the form of a direct cremation – where there is no service held or any mourners in attendance. The remains are then returned to the family at a later date, where they can scatter or store the ashes.

Attended funerals are the opposite, where there is a service conducted by a celebrant or member of the clergy and a number of guests are permitted to attend. An unattended funeral service is a lower cost alternative, and is ideal if you plan to have a memorial service later on down the line, or your loved one did not wish for a ceremony at all.

Direct cremation is growing in popularity, and more details about this type of funeral can be found here.

What is a Direct Cremation?

A Direct Cremation is an alternative to the traditional funeral. This involves the cremation of the deceased without a funeral service. A Direct Cremation is generally the most economic option because costs of the coffin, preparation of the body, funeral service and expensive transportation are not included. However, many people choose Direct Cremations for reasons other than expense, for example:

  • - Wanting to have a memorial at a different time to the cremation
  • - Expressed desire from the deceased to not have a ceremony
  • - Individuals with relatives who face big physical or geographical challenges in coming together for a ceremony

The prices quoted for Direct Cremations include:

  • All charges, meetings and paperwork for the cremation
  • Collection of deceased and care prior to cremation
  • A simple coffin and urn for the ashes
  • Cremation fees and delivery of ashes to the family
