Funeral directors

When the death certificate has been issued by the Registrar, you will also be given a certificate authorising the funeral. Most people will then employ a Funeral Director to arrange the funeral on their behalf.

There is a wide choice of funeral directors in Telford and Wrekin who can arrange the funeral for you.

Independent funerals

Although funeral directors are invited to organise the majority of funerals, you may prefer to organise the funeral yourself. You may feel that personally organising a funeral is your final tribute to the deceased person, or may simply wish to save money.

An independent funeral can mean taking responsibility for collecting and moving the body, arranging the embalming and viewing of the deceased, providing a coffin and a hearse, and arranging the service, or it can just mean arranging the burial and service.

There is now a move towards a more 'green' type of burial that promotes biodegradable coffins and offering the option of a woodland burial. The Natural Death Centre is a charitable project launched in the UK in 1991 that provides information to help people arrange inexpensive, family-organised and environmentally-friendly funerals.
