What to do after someone dies

When somebody dies it can come as a great shock and the first few days following death are both busy and confusing ones for family and friends alike. We, as professional Funeral Directors, are able to advise you in making all the arrangements to meet your personal needs. Please remember that we are here to help you in whatever way we can, to cope and adjust to your bereavement.
