Planning A Funeral

When someone dies, you not only have to deal with the loss of a loved one, but also the knowledge that the family now has to go on, make decisions and organise the funeral service. The average person may find themselves planning a funeral only once or twice in their entire lifetime. It is perfectly normal to feel a sense of apprehension, uncertainty or even outright fear of this process.

Before the funeral

The funeral home will transfer your loved one into their care and if required provide facilities for viewing of the deceased prior to the funeral. They will also coordinate and manage all necessary paperwork. For further information about bringing your loved one into the care of a funeral home (known in the industry as a Transfer) please see our FAQ.

The role of a funeral director encompasses practical organisation, support and guidance to the family and liaison with a wide range of other organisations and services to ensure the funeral is properly arranged.

After discussing your requirements, an NFDA funeral firm member will arrange the funeral you want, taking on the responsibility for organising every aspect of the event and delivering it to the highest professional standards.
