Undertakers in Liverpool

Undertakers in Liverpool

Undertakers in LiverpoolThe general public may wonder from time to time exactly what it is that undertakers in Liverpool do. If you have attended funerals you might conclude that we stand quietly in the background and greet the attendees; gather the flowers and casket into our limos for transport to the cemetery; then clean up after the service. We do all that and much more. If you have never before had to arrange a funeral we want to assure you that we have you covered legally, financially, scheduling and after care. You can depend on us to discreetly carry out your wishes in the supportive manner needed by grieving families. If your loved one is hospitalised or in end of life care, leave our phone number with the staff. When your loved one passes, they’ll call you and then us.

The first thing we do is collect the remains from the hospital or hospice. In Liverpool, our undertakers will schedule an appointment with you for the purpose of planning the funeral, noting your preference for immediate cremation, simple funeral or elaborate funeral. Some to-do items are the same for all funerals. The death must be registered and if not from natural causes there may be coroner’s services to attend to. We will advise you on all of that. If you are entitled to funds from DPW we will assist you filing the claim. Assistance in choosing a coffin depending on type of funeral and budget will offer choices. Our service includes embalming, transportation between funeral home church and cemetery, funeral director and bearers on the day of service if requested. We offer the use of our chapel if you prefer.

When you choose Barringtons as your undertakers in Liverpool, billing for the collection of remains, flowers, music, cemetery fees or cremation urns may be directed to us. We will disperse funds accordingly from the total funeral cost. Contact Barringtons before you need us if you know what your or your loved one’s funeral wishes are. That will save time for the funeral planner and relieve the need for guesswork. Our funeral directors are compassionate and experienced. We have a good understanding of the need to grieve and the funeral plays an important role in the process. Therefore, the funeral should reflect your wishes and we always honour that.

    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.
