Please ask other cheaper providers if they can collect from any place of death; where and how will the deceased be looked after, where and when will they be cremated and how much extra it would cost to have the ashes returned. The Good Funeral Guide says this: “This is an unregulated industry, remember: the bad guys can get away with… anything. The good guys ask us to visit them and check them out so that we can confidently recommend them. The bad ones, obviously, don’t. If after browsing the website you don’t feel you have a clear idea of the identity of the owner, AVOID. If there is no postal address on the website, AVOID“.

Obtain the green certificate from the registrar and then either visit our office by appointment request a home visit or we can send the necessary forms via email/post. NB green certificate not issued if there has been a post mortem

I can't recommend these guys enough, Paul and his team were really understanding and helpful. I have used other funeral directors, based in Deal before and the service received was very different. If I am unfortunate enough to need the service again I would not think twice about going to them. Highly recommend. Thank you to Paul and team you made a difficult day more tolerable.
