PLANNING THE FUNERAL

We have put together a brief guide to help and inform you about the planning of the funeral.

Many people today have a pre-paid funeral plan which states what kind of funeral they’d prefer. They may have written something in their Will about the type of ceremony they would like.

Mostly, this is an occasion for you to mark the person’s passing and celebrate their life. You may have strong religious beliefs that set out how the funeral will happen. Or you may want a ceremony with no religious content, but where family members, colleagues or friends say what the deceased meant to them. Most Church of England clergy will allow you to include these personal elements in the church’s burial service.

Floyd & Son will discuss what you want and give you an estimate that includes all fees and charges.

Burial

The Church of England has set fees for burials. Remember that the burial is most likely to be in a cemetery as most churchyards cannot accept new burials. The local authority generally own cemeteries and fees will vary.

Cremation

No one can be cremated until the cause of death is known. There are certain forms you will be required to sign. The cost of cremation will depend on which local authority’s crematorium you use. Ashes can be scattered in a garden of remembrance or a favourite spot. They can be buried in a churchyard or cemetery or kept.

We are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Feel free to contact us at any time and our staff will be only too pleased to assist you in any way they can.
