Funeral Arrangements in Formby

Funeral Arrangements in Formby

Funeral Arrangements in FormbyIf you have lost a family member or relative you will know that funeral arrangements in Formby are best left to the professionals. Funeral directors need to be understanding as many of their clients have never lost a close relative before. This is enough to leave most people deep in grief and unable to think logically. There are so many rules and regulations that without help it can be very daunting. There are official documents to complete so that one can get approval for the funeral. The death needs to be registered with the government by a family member and a doctor needs to sign the certificate as well.  Without these formalities you may not bury anyone and if you have no-one to guide you through all these procedures you will have a long delay before a burial can be arranged.

Our funeral directors will consult closely with the family of the deceased to establish what kind of funeral they envisage. In Formby, funeral arrangements can be as simple or complex as the family require. Many people today do not have a strict religious affiliation and would rather have a cremation with a memorial service. This can be held in a hall or even in our chapel. Our major concern is to make the family of the deceased feel that they have provided the perfect funereal to celebrate their deep love of their family member. If the family or the deceased was religious then a church service will be required. Hymn sheets and order of service pamphlets can be printed with a photo of the deceased and a appropriate verse.

When you need funeral arrangements in Formby it means someone close to you has died. We offer our sincere condolences and urge you to contact Barringtons as soon as possible. Our funeral directors have the training and experience to help the family. They not only help remove a lot of the stress but will take care of the initial arrangements that need to be made. One of the most important details is collecting the deceased and taking them into the care of the funeral home.

    approach to funeral service


      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.
