Caring for the deceased

Once you have entrusted the deceased into our care we will look after them with respect and sensitivity. They will rest with us until the day of the funeral or, if you prefer, they can rest at home or in church, if this is allowed.

We recommend hygienic treatment to the deceased as it delays the natural processes that take place after death. This is particularly important if you want to visit the person in the chapel of rest.

We wash and dress everyone in our care. Some people like to provide us with items such as a favourite outfit.

Our funeral directors will carry out your wishes carefully and respectfully but, if you would like to help us look after your loved one, please let us know.
