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.

The 'Tapper's Team' at Barrack Road - Simon, Anna and Michelle - could not have been more helpful and sympathetic while arranging and conducting the funeral of my Aunt. They did everything possible to ensure that the whole process ran smoothly and impressed our whole family. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Friendly, compassionate and professional service. Difficult times during the lockdown - even the local chapel was closed, so we used the Ceremony Room in Christchurch, which worked so well - a bright sunny room which enabled us to have a selection of photos shown too. Simon and Michelle were so helpful, guiding us from the initial enquiry throu...
