Who Takes Care of Funeral Arrangements in Waterloo?

funeral flowersFamilies needing funeral arrangements in Waterloo are facing a difficult time in their lives. At Barrington Funeral Directors, we attempt to ease the burden of dealing with the death of a loved one, and make the experience one that honours their life properly. A customer recently called with some very specific requests for funeral arrangements, unsure if we would be able to accommodate her needs. As a full service provider of all funeral arrangements, we reassured her of our ability to help. We requested she stop into the office for a meeting. We wanted to talk with her about the life of the deceased to better understand how we could meet all her needs.

During our consultation with our caller we learned that her husband had been a passionate environmentalist in Waterloo. Funeral arrangements are intended to plan a service that reflects an individuals life, and our customer wanted her husband’s ideals displayed in his memorial. She had no idea how to go about this and was pleased to hear the recommendations of our funeral director. In this initial meeting, the bereaved was able to plan a non-denominational service in a beautiful setting, and chose to have him buried in an environmentally-friendly bamboo coffin.

As is common when a family member passes suddenly, our client was not familiar with with the small details surrounding the death of a loved one. These are just the kind of rough patches Barrington Funeral Directors try to smooth over. With our experience we were able to walk the bereaved through the process of registering the death, planning the service, and even arranged for doves to be released at the burial site. Our mission is to make every service as special and unique as the individual being honored. If you are in need of funeral arrangements in Waterloo, give us a call today at 0151 928 1625 today.

      Coronavirus Virus Update

      Thanks for visiting our website. We are open to support you during the current Coronavirus Crisis.

      We are continuing to offer our service with some limitations to our working to keep you safe and also our team members.

      At the moment we prefer to make arrangements remotely over the phone or using video conferencing. If you doesn't work for you, please let us know and we will make arrangements to support you. 

      Please make an appointment before visiting our offices. If you are in isolation, shielding  or clinically vulnerable we can still help by using email and the internet. We may visit you to sign paperwork or to collect items and we can also complete forms on your behalf or e-sign them using the internet. 

      Our Waterloo office is open 9am - 5pm and Formby is currently open 10am - 4pm. There are still lots of ways that we can discuss to make the service personal and involve people from a distance.

      Funerals are still taking place but there is a legal limit on attendance at the service of 30 people. Any reception or wake is subject to the current restrictions on hospitality.

      Thanks for your understanding. Please don't wait before making arrangements. It's important that we still hold funeral services promptly.

      Thanks very much,

      David and Claire Barrington.
