Choosing a funeral directors in Guide Bridge
Choosing a funeral directors in Guide Bridge can be an overwhelming and daunting prospect when compiled with the emotional and practical aspects of arranging a funeral. As experienced funeral directors ourselves serving the Guide Bridge area, we’ve put together some useful information which should assist you in choosing your funeral directors.

Service type
Firstly, it’s a good idea to have a sit down with your family and friends to decide whether you’d wish for your loved one to be cremated or buried. During this difficult process it’s important to consider what you think your loved one would have wanted. According to The Cremation Society – in 2019, 472,302 loved ones were cremated in the UK, with 606,897 deaths reported which indicates that 77.82% of loved ones in the UK were in fact cremated.

Cremation services tend to be more cost effective as apposed to burials, as opting for a burial will often require the purchase of a burial plot in addition to the opening of such grave. In turn, we believe this is a large contributing factor for the large cremation statistics.

Funeral services aren’t cheap and regretfully some funeral directors aren’t always honest and transparent with their pricing and this can lead to very expensive mistakes. Firstly, you need to explain to the funeral director what kind of service you’d like for your loved one, ensuring you tell them everything no matter how minor the detail may be. Once you’ve done this, you should ask for a written quotation including disbursements.

Funeral directors can often provide quotations excluding essential products/services leaving you out of pocket! Take a look at our funeral packages to give yourself an idea of everything you’ll require as part of your loved ones funeral service in Guide Bridge.

Another important thing to consider is whether you’d like to spend some time with your loved one in a chapel of rest.
