Looking for funeral directors can be a daunting task and the last thing on your mind at a time of grieving. At Arthur Peake, we know that finding the right funeral director in Newport is important in order to take the pressure out of the situation.
We have put together some useful tips and information so that you can be more prepared when the time comes.
What To Do When Someone Dies
When someone dies, a death certificate needs to be issued. This is so the funeral director can take possession of the body. If somebody dies in their home, a doctor can issue the death certificate. In England & Wales this must register within 5 days, In Scotland it’s 8 days.
If somebody has died in hospital, providing there are no unexpected medical conditions a post-mortem might be required. You can arrange collection by our funeral directors once the death certificate has been issued. Contact us as soon as you can as many of the funeral arrangements can be made before the body is collected.
Making Funeral Arrangements
We understand that the loss of a loved one can be a terrible time and daunting. Our many years of experience means we are compassionate about all of your decisions and can assist anyway possible. Our trained staff can guide you through each stage whilst minimising the level of stress.
Typically, once the body has been collected, our funeral directors will take you through the planning process of the funeral. This starts with picking a date, then continues with the order and feel of the service that will best reflect your loved one. Our staff will go through everything with you from the transport to the order of service to ensure everything is as hassle free as possible.
