Find a funeral director
Funeral directors have experience organising different types of funeral and can suggest ideas for you to consider. They'll deal with the cemetery or crematorium for you so you won't have to.
Most funeral directors are a member of one of the following:
National Association of Funeral Directors
0121 711 1343 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm)
Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors
01279 726 777
These organisations have codes of practice – members must give you an estimate of funeral costs when asked. This should include a breakdown of the costs for the services you ask for.
You may want to talk to more than one funeral director so you can compare prices. There are also price comparison websites available.
