Frequently Asked Questions
In most cases, it takes between one and two weeks after death to plan a funeral – providing that there are no hold-ups or setbacks.
Before a burial or cremation goes ahead, you need to register the death and obtain a death certificate as well as a green form for the burial or cremation, which can take up to five days in England.
This process is done by appointment only, and you’ll receive the necessary documents within 30 minutes or so.
However, it can take a few days for you to get an appointment, so be sure to contact them as soon as you can.
While waiting for an appointment with the registry office or for your documents to come through, you can begin thinking about the kind of service you want to create for your loved one.
Now is the perfect time to speak to funeral directors too, as it can take a few phone calls or meetings before you’re able to figure out which one feels right for you.
They’ll be happy to assist you with planning but remember that the actual burial or cremation can’t take place until you’ve got your hands on these documents.
Following the death of a friend or family member, the majority of people choose to work with a funeral director.
This doesn’t mean that you have to, and you’re under no obligation to work with a funeral director if you and your family would rather take full control of the funeral arrangement process yourselves.
If this sounds like a route you’d want to take, your local crematorium, cemetery or the Natural Death Centre will be able to offer help and guidance if you need it, but we’d always recommend working with a funeral director if you can.
From sorting all the paperwork to helping you find the perfect coffin or urn, organising everything by yourself is a lot to take on – especially when you’re grieving a loss.
A funeral director will help you bear the load and take care of these things for you – but don’t worry – you can still be as involved as you like with the arrangement process.

Unless you have strict cultural or religious requirements, there’s no mad rush to find a funeral director following the death of your loved one.
In fact, we’d recommend taking your time to find the perfect funeral director – who you know can accommodate your every need during the arrangement process and beyond.
Finding the perfect funeral director is all about asking questions and doing this is the best way to tell if they’re a suitable company to be working with.
You should check what kind of services they provide, if they’re customisable, what’s included in their charges, if they require a deposit, if you’ll be able to purchase a coffin or urn from another provider, etc.
