Attended Funeral

The aim of the Competition and Markets Authority Funeral Markets Order 2021 is to make it easier for customers to access the prices of funeral directors and crematorium operators and to help increase customers’ awareness of the total cost of the services they may require.

These provisions are also intended to help customers to  compare the prices and services of different funeral directors and crematorium operators so that they can assess what best suits their needs and budget.

The criteria for the Attended Funeral:

  • Taking care of all necessary legal and administrative arrangements.
  • Collecting and transporting the deceased person from the place of death (normally within 15 miles of the funeral director’s premises) into the funeral director’s care.
  • Care of the deceased person before the funeral in appropriate facilities.
  • Providing a suitable coffin.
  • Viewing of the deceased person for family and friends, by appointment with the Funeral Director.
  • Provision of a hearse or other appropriate vehicle to take the deceased person direct to the agreed cemetery or crematorium (normally within 20 miles of the funeral director’s premises) at a date and time agreed between the customer and funeral director.

Caroline made my beloved fathers funeral so special. No detail was too small, she arranged everything exactly as I wanted and my father had the send off that he truly deserved. I can’t thank her enough for making such a difficult time so much easier.

Sandra is a kind and compassionate person who really listens and does her best to help in difficult times. Without her, this whole process would have been more stressful, worrying and confusing. It was very important for us to find the right person, somebody we liked and could trust in difficult times, and Sandra was certainly the right choice...

I couldn't praise the service we had from Sandra highly enough. I felt completely supported by her in every way and was confident that everything was being dealt with in the most professional and competent way. I would highly recommend the company to handle a difficult time with respect and dignity.

A V Ridout provided a wonderful service when we were sadly organising the funeral of a dear friend.We had used them about 2 years previously and on both occassions we dealt with the Funeral Director Sandra Hagger.On each occasion she was professional, caring, helpful and guided us gently through all the arrangements. Nothing was too much trouble...
