We realise that this is a very difficult time and that the decisions that need to be taken and the paperwork that need to be completed certainly don’t make it any easier. Whilst we cannot change the grief you will be experiencing, there are some things we can do to make this time a little bit easier and less worrying for you. At Saint and Forster we think it is important to ‘go the extra mile’ with you. There is no charge for any of the following services.
While it is a legal requirement that the death is registered by a family member, we can pick you up and take you along to your appointment if transport is a problem- or if you would just like a bit of support or reassurance. If you wish, we can register the death for you with the ‘bereavement register’ which should stop you from receiving ‘junk mail’ addressed to the deceased which can be very upsetting.
Our relationship with you does not finish with the funeral. If you find that you are experiencing problems with grief or in dealing with the changes in your life, please feel free to contact us. We work closely with a number of bereavement specialists and we will be able to put you in touch with someone who can help you.
Finally, you can call us at any time if you want help, advice or information. This includes during the time when you are making a decision about which funeral director to use. Obviously we hope that you will choose us, but we do not want you to feel pressured into making a quick decision and we expect that you may spend some time speaking to several funeral homes before you decide which one is right for you. Once you instruct a different funeral director to act for you it would be unprofessional for us to continue to advise you but until that time if there are any questions or worries that we can help you with, or if you want more information about anything on this website, please give us a call and speak to Keith or Jenny.
