Funeral Directors – Serving the Needs of the Local Community
If you have lived in an area for a number of years you will, in all probability, be aware of who your local funeral directors are. Local funeral directors offer a much higher level of personal service in comparison to their nationwide counterparts. Local funerals in Brixham, Devon are usually carried out by family run funeral directors who are local to the area and known throughout the community. The level of service offered by such people is high, mainly due to the fact that they know the deceased and the deceased’s family. The cost of a funeral is also generally lower compared with funeral directors engaged from outside the immediate area. They offer a number of services including:
- Green Funerals
- Floral Tributes
- Personal Tributes
- Coffin Selection
The above services are in addition to prepayment funeral plans, transport, assisting with the funeral service and generally relieving the burden of organising a funeral from grieving relatives.
A Special Occupation
In order to become a funeral director or a member of staff, you need to be a certain type of person. Empathetic, understanding and have a strong character. This is particularly true for local family run funeral directors who have lived in the same community for years. They must also be very approachable, and ready to answer questions at a time of great grief for friends and family members. Patience and deep understanding are two key attributes for funeral directors, and all possess these valuable qualities in abundance.
