Verwood Funeral Directors
In the UK we’ve tended to shrink funerals down into nothing more than a number. In fact, it’s estimated that there are 600,000 funerals here per year, and that number is tallied to add up just how much money is in the “industry”.
At O’Hara Funeral Directors, we believe it’s more important than ever to keep the planning of a memorial service respectful, intimate, and understanding for the families and friends involved. Funeral services are very personal, which is why we pride ourselves on offering a variety of services that can ensure a wonderful celebration of life for your lost loved one while providing you with the comfort and support you need to get through this tough time.
It’s never easy to discuss the loss of a loved one or to start planning their funeral. But, we’re here to make the process easier on you, so you can focus your attention on grieving and healing.
What to Expect
Funeral directors have to take on many roles, from consulting with family members to preparing the deceased for burial or cremation. As a family member or friend who has recently lost someone you care about, though, we understand that your only concern is making sure their life is honored appropriately.
At O’Hara Funeral Directors, we offer either burial or cremation services, and are happy to talk to you about whatever choice you might want to make. Cremation services are the most common type of funerals nowadays, though burial services are still popular and your loved one can typically be buried in the burial ground of your choice.
There is also the option to have the cremated remains interred at a burial ground. This gives people a chance to visit a memorial and pay their respects for years to come.
If your loved one had already decided whether cremation or burial was their preference, we will walk you through what you can expect and assure you that every part of the process will be handled with care and respect.
Planning a Service
There is no “set date” for a funeral to take place after a person has passed away. The typical time period is anywhere from 1-2 weeks. This gives loved ones who have to travel time to make the trip to Verwood, and it helps to ensure the service is planned out properly.
Our top priority in helping you plan the perfect service for your loved one is to make sure you receive the highest standard of care and have everything at your disposal in your time of need. Because this is a very personal time, we take a personal approach with all of our services to make sure you and your family are cared for, as well as your loved one that has passed on.
We will work with you to put together either a religious or non-religious service, depending on your loved one’s preferences. Our award-winning levels of service also go beyond just personal care. We consistently want to make sure we’re offering our clients in Verwood the very best, which is why there are a few consistencies you can expect at our services, including:
- Our recognisable staff dressed in navy blue to help as needed
- Our signature fleet of modern silver Jaguars
- Our chapels and offices decorated appropriately
Your loved one and your family deserve the very best, so we will work with you every step of the way to put together a worthy service. No two services are exactly alike. Rather, the planning stage is about bringing forth the best memories of the person who has passed and putting together a service to truly honor them and their memory. If you’re not sure where to begin, or you’re feeling overwhelmed by the whole process, we are here to help. We will work with you on anything from music selection to readings, to who might be speaking at the service, until we create a respectful and life-honoring program for the one you’ve lost.
