Francis Roberts & Son Funeral Directors will guide you through the process step by step, helping you make the choices that are suitable for your family in your own time. By being patient and listening carefully, we are able to help you work through all the options.
We are always happy to visit you in your own home as many times as you need, or you can chat to us at our offices.
Coffins are available in many different materials and designs, from traditional wooden coffins to modern or unusual options including wicker, willow and bamboo. By talking and listening to you, we can help you choose the coffin, furnishings, plaque and wording that reflects your loved one.
The Francis Roberts & Son chapel of rest is a place of privacy and calm where you can reflect and grieve in peace before the day of the funeral.
Floral arrangements can be organised by us in any style you require. We will sit with you if you wish to help you choose the most appropriate floral tribute for your loved one. Floral choices include lettering, crosses, hearts, baskets, sprays and wreaths.
The Francis Roberts & Son funeral hearses and vehicles provide dignified transport for you and your family on the day of the funeral. We are also able to organise other forms of transport if you require.
When you are ready to plan your memorial masonry, we will take you through the options, looking at choice of stone, wording and style. We use trusted and skilled stonemasons to create your personal design.
All aspects of the funeral service will be planned and organised by us following your requirements, including stationery, service sheets and music.
Newspaper notices and thank you notices can be arranged by us, using your wording or suggestions from us.
Your undertaker at Francis Roberts & Son can prepare both a venue and catering for after the funeral, using trusted and reliable local resources and businesses. Catering can also be organised in your home or at a venue where your own refreshments can be prepared and served.
There can often be a confusing amount of paperwork to deal with following a death – from straightforward death certificates to medical certificates and applications for cremation. Your funeral director at Francis Roberts & Son will go through all the necessary documents with you and ensure all paperwork and legalities are taken care of. The only item that we cannot undertake for you is in registering the death. This has to be done by you. We will, however, relate you to the very simple procedure that has to be followed. Should you feel it to be necessary, we will accompany you to the Registrar to provide moral support.
