this is what funeral directors are really good at - providing everything you need....
a funeral need not be expensive, if we keep it simple....
this dispenses with the crematorium service, allowing you to do something more personal and perhaps meaningful.
this offers the oportunity to have a more natural burial, with tree marking the place rather than a headstone.
COVID-19: Changes to Funerals
In line with the latest government and industry guidelines, the way funerals can be arranged and conducted has changed:
Death Certificate & Registration
You are no longer required to collect the death certificate or to attend the Registrars personally.
Registration has now to be carried out by phone and the necessary documents are then emailed directly to the Funeral Director.
East Dunbartonshire Registrars 0300 123 4510
Stirling Council Registrars 01786 823 300
North Lanarkshire Council Registrars 01236 632 740
Glasgow Council Registrars 0141 287 7677
The Funeral Director does not need to visit you at home for arrangements, but can still collect someone who has died.
The Funeral Director can now make all the funeral arrangements by phone or by email and can complete all statutory documentation electronically.
It’s still possible to make special arrangements for up to 2 people to meet at the Lennoxtown office. Masks must be worn.
Numbers attending are restricted to 20 persons. Masks must be worn.
Family members are no longer allowed to carry the coffin in most cases.
Some churches can accomodate services, although no singing allowed.
If a limousine is necessary for the funeral, masks must be worn.
Some crematoriums request that floral tributes are tied sheafs only.
No orders of service or hymn books will be handed out by staff.
It’s still possible to have a meaningful farewell, your Minister, Priest or Celebrant can conduct a very intimate committal service or you can just say your farewells with your close family and some appropriate music and perhaps plan an event for the future….
