One Family Looking after Another, The way it should be. We're here because we care.

Arranging a Funeral

Our personal, professional services to you commence when you first get in touch with us. Contact can be by either our 24-hour service telephone line which is available day or night, or by you visiting our funeral home personally.

Arrangements can also be made remotely if you prefer, with continued kindness, dignity and respect for your loved one.

When you first get in touch, we would ask you for a few details such as the name of the person who has died and the location. We will ask for your name and contact phone number. If appropriate and we have been instructed, we arrange to transfer the Person who has died safely into our care as soon as practically possible.

We would ordinarily then schedule an appointment to come and see us at Barringtons, to discuss the arrangements for the funeral and to provide more detailed information. In the event that this is not possible, all necessary arrangements can be made via telephone, email or even video call if you prefer and we promise to make this as simple and considerate as possible.

Decisions you will need to consider are;

  • Burial, Cremation or Repatriation
  • Coffin, casket and urn selection
  • Dressing the deceased
  • Where the deceased should rest prior to the funeral
  • Where the funeral is to be held
  • Religious or secular service
  • Who is to conduct and speak at the funeral service
  • Whether to have floral tributes or donations to charity
  • Who to invite to the funeral
  • Who should be informed of the death
  • Newspaper Notices
  • What costs are appropriate

Arranging a funeral is a unique opportunity to celebrate the life of a loved one and our caring and professional staff will be available to guide and advise you throughout.

Feel free to call them to discuss your thoughts, concerns and wishes – they will be pleased to help in any way they can.
