Bereavement is a distressing experience that all of us encounter at sometime in our lives, yet it is something that is talked about very little in every day life. The distress and emotional upset can leave the bereaved completely disorientated and unsure of what to do next. Our service and personal attention starts from the time you contact us. The funeral will be arranged to your individual requirements.
We can arrange a service at any crematorium locally or further a-field if required. The costs of cremations are governed by local authorities and we will advise you on this. The local ‘Wear Valley’ crematorium, which opened in 2009 on the outskirts of coundon has proven to be accessible and accommodating when it comes to the more personal needs of families. However the more traditional options of Durham or Darlington crematorium are requested regularly if there is a link with the family, possibly due to a previous cremation service. No one can be cremated until the cause of death is definitely known. There are certain forms that you will be required to sign.
