Funeral Arrangements in West Derby

Funeral Arrangements in West Derby

Funeral arrangements in West DerbyFuneral arrangements in West Derby are ultimately a matter of choice. A bereaved family can find a reputable funeral home to be a huge help in their time of grief. There are so many things to organise and having a competent and professional shoulder to lean on will help get you through this tragic time. With many years of experience, the caring and helpful staff will advise you on registration of death and coroners procedures and claims for funeral payments where applicable. This has to be done by the family but everything else can be left to the funeral director to arrange once the family have decided on the basis requirements. The first decision is whether to have a burial or a cremation. If you are having a burial the funeral director will arrange your nominated church along with the minister and flowers chosen by the family. They will also arrange the service time that suits you and the church and can help with the newspaper notifications.

In West Derby, funeral arrangements can safely be left for the funeral director. After collecting the deceased and transferring them to the funeral home you will be able to send their favourite clothes for them to be dressed in. A coffin can be chosen or you can specify the amount you would like to spend and the coffin, which will be beautifully appointed, will be selected for you along with ornaments and name plate on the lid. Music and hymns need to be discussed and if there are favourite hymns you require the director will arrange this with the minister and church.

Funeral arrangements in West Derby include a hearse and a limousine to carry the close family from their home to the church and then to the burial and finally the reception. As everyone has different requirements for a funeral, no two funerals will be the same and your unique needs will be discussed and then acted on to the satisfaction of the family.

      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,
