What Are Other Funeral Directors Missing?
Firstly it must be said that there are many things which funeral directors typically get absolutely right. Most of them provide an excellent and professional service, supporting and guiding families through arrangements at a very difficult time. They are genuinely caring in their dealings with clients and can be trusted to look after your loved one as if he or she were their own.
At Trust Funerals we wholeheartedly agree that this is of paramount importance and we can always be relied on to be sensitive compassionate and caring towards you and your loved one at all times.
Generally, funeral directors provide a huge and occasionally bewildering number of options to cater for all tastes and requirements. But what about those people who are only wishing to arrange a personalised but simple and straightforward service at a Crematorium? This kind of funeral is becoming increasingly popular and of course all funeral directors can do this for their standard fee but could a locally based cremation specialist offer a better overall service?
During Simon’s time working for funeral directors in the Derby area he noticed that big changes were occurring in the type and style of funeral that people chose.
It is a well known fact that cremations are on the increase and that the number of burials have been in steady decline for some years. Fewer people attend church on a regular basis nowadays and consequently the number of church funeral services is also going down.
In addition though, he saw that families often didn’t want the hearse going to the house before the funeral. More families were choosing to arrive at the crematorium in their own vehicles rather than squeezing into cramped limousines. Usually these limousines would transport the mourners only as far as the Wake, other arrangements would have to be made to get home again afterwards so many families preferred not to use them at all. Despite these cars becoming less popular they remain very expensive to buy and these overheads greatly increase the cost of the overall funeral services being offered.
