The Role of the Funeral Director
The role of a funeral director is a broad one. It encompasses many different aspects such as the practical side of organising a funeral, including liaison with other relevant organisations and services, as well as providing support and guidance to the family.
The death of a loved one is without a doubt one of the most difficult times of our lives and the knowledge of a local Funeral Director at this time can be essential in helping to guide you through the funeral arrangements. Familiarity with regulations, funeral rites of different religions and procedure and options available are all part of the advice your Funeral Director will offer you.
It is the Funeral Director’s role to liaise between the bereaved and all the various organisations providing the services required. It is therefore crucial that the Funeral Director has a broad knowledge of what they are offering a client.
Being entrusted to care for a loved one until the time of the funeral is a responsible task that requires not only the knowledge of how to care for the deceased but also the correct facilities to carry this out effectively. Your Funeral Director will be able to advise you accordingly as to the correct care for your loved one.
The day of the funeral can be stressful for the bereaved and it is the Funeral Director’s job to ensure that all instructions received from the family are dealt with accordingly and in a calm and efficient manner. Your funeral director will be there to guide and assist you throughout the day.
