Here are the services we offer
We take responsibility for arranging the details of the funeral, from the practical elements, such as coffin, hearse, limousines to the church or crematorium, along with obituary notices, flowers, reception, catering, service sheets, music requirements and any other requests that make the funeral the personal tribute that it deserves to be.
In the case of any death, the first practical step is to arrange the removal of the deceased into our care and then await instructions. We provide advice and guidance for all aspects of the funeral service. Detailed discussions of the various options and the co-ordination of funeral requirements usually occur at our offices but, if preferred, we can visit you in your own home.
Prepaid Funerals, Consideration for others is the most common reason for taking out a funeral plan and peace of mind is the most common benefit.
Our Services, In the case of any death, the first practical step is to arrange the removal of the deceased into our care and then await instructions.
Floral Tributes, Floral tributes should ideally be sent to the Funeral Director to arrive at least 2 hours before the departure time.
Memorials, All memorials are made subject to permission from the relevant churchyard or cemetery and some certain restrictions.........
In the event of a death which is sudden or unexpected the Police will attend to coordinate the removal of the body, on behalf of the coroner, to the public mortuary. The coroner will be informed and the requirement for a post mortem assessed according to Ministry of Justice guidelines. When a death occurs and is due to unnatural causes a coroner's inquest is necessary. The coroner will open and adjourn to a later date. The coroner will then release the deceased to enable the funeral to take place. The coroner will issue an interim certificate, which can be used for bank or insurance purposes. When death occurs at home and the deceased WAS NOT under the care of a physician or hospice, your local police department should be notified (call 999).
If the funeral will be taking place abroad, there are certain legal requirements that need to be fulfilled. If a body is to be moved from England or Wales to Scotland, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands, as well as elsewhere abroad, you will need to notify the coroner for the district in which the deceased is lying and complete a Removal Notice (form 104). Brett Quinton Funeral Directors will deal with this form on your behalf. Often this authorisation has to be requested at least four days before the person is to be moved to give time for any enquiries. Repatriating someone who has died from Scotland to elsewhere may not need the authority of the Procurator Fiscal. Please check with us so we can advise on your specific circumstances.
