West Moors Funeral Directors
On average, a funeral can take anywhere from one day to two weeks to plan, depending on your loved one’s needs and wants, and where you are, personally, in the grieving process. No two funerals are exactly alike, which is why it’s important to work with West Moors funeral directors you can trust.
At O’Hara Funeral Directors, we pride ourselves on the level of care and respect we give to each family we work with. Our dedication is, of course, also to the care and respect of the person who has passed on. The funeral industry has far too often become just that – an “industry”, with over 600,000 occurring in the UK each year.
We believe it’s important to take the “industry” aspect out of funeral planning, and bring back the personal side of it. That’s why we offer a variety of options for our services and hold ourselves to a level of professionalism that is seen in everything we do.
With that in mind, if you’re looking for independent funeral directors in West Moors, you have come to the right place.
What Services Are Offered?
Again, no two funerals are alike. This is an overwhelming time for your family, so we are here to make sure your loved one is honored in the way they would want, and the way you think is best.
We offer both burial and cremation services in West Moors. Cremation is becoming the more popular option, but, burials can also take place at a local ground or through your loved one’s parish. Services can be either religious or non-religious, depending on the deceased’s preferences.
When it comes to cremation services, we can walk you through options regarding what to expect from the crematorium. If some family members are not able to attend a service, we can work with a crematorium that allows for a webcast of the service to be held, so no one is left out.
After the decision has been made about burial or cremation, we will work with you to plan the actual service. This process includes things like:
- Floral arrangements
We hold ourselves to a standard of professionalism and personal dedication for every service, which is why we go above and beyond standard procedures. While each funeral is different, there are a few things you can expect from O’Hara, including:
- Appropriately-decorated facilities during the service
- Our staff outfitted in signature navy blue
- The use of our modern, silver fleet of Jaguars
Our traditional funeral services include:
- Private ambulance for removal of deceased to our funeral premises
- Hygienic care of the deceased
- Arranging and conducting the funeral arrangements.
- Providing choice of coffins, including fittings and linings.
- Obtaining all necessary forms and documents required by the authorities.
- Making necessary arrangements with the chosen Minister.
- Use of Private Chapel of Rest
- Use of our silver grey hearse for the funeral.
- Any other items will be itemised on the funeral account
It is important that all of our clients experience the very best from start to finish, so you feel confident that you’re putting together the service your loved one would have wanted. Any of the items listed above can be adjusted to fit your needs and wants, and we are happy to talk about costs and while offering advice on how to move forward with each area of the service.
What to Expect After the Service
As of 2016, over 75% of people in the UK preferred cremation over burial. But, many people opt for their ashes to be buried so loved ones have a place to visit for years to come.
With that in mind, it’s important for you to consider that the funeral itself is only part of the process of handling a loved one’s death. After honoring their life with a beautiful service, why not create something that will last for centuries, like a memorial stone?
