After the doctor has issued the Medical Cause of Death Certificate, and when you are ready, we will collect the person who has died from hospital, carefully wrap their body in a soft cotton shroud, and take them to our mortuary facility.
You will usually register the death at the Register Office in the district where the death occurred.
Amanda or Lucie will come and see you at home to talk everything through and complete all the necessary paperwork. You can choose the venue, day and time of the funeral service. Easthampstead Park Crematorium has a 24 hour online booking system so a booking can be made at your home there and then. The new second chapel, named ‘Wellington’, has now opened, complimenting the original chapel – named ‘Braccan’, offering more choice of dates and times.
You will have time to plan the ceremony content and music/slideshow choices yourselves, or discuss, liaise and agree the details with the person who will be creating the funeral ceremony for you.
On the morning of the funeral we gently place the body in a simple wood veneered coffin and take it to the crematorium before the funeral. The coffin will be placed in the crematorium chapel before you and your guests arrive.
