So, What Do You Need to Do Following a Death?

The first thing you’ll need to do is inform the relevant authorities. This will depend on where your loved one died but may include the local registrar, doctor, and coroner. They will all need to be notified of the death to begin registering it.

You’ll also need to inform any close relatives or friends of the death, as they may want to know. It can be difficult for them, so it’s important to be there as much as possible.

Finally, you’ll need to start organising the funeral. This can seem daunting, but our Wallace Stuart team is here to help make it as smooth and stress-free as possible. We can recommend reputable funeral directors and help you with all the arrangements.

Arranging A Funeral In Glastonbury

The process of arranging a funeral can be difficult and overwhelming. Finding a funeral director who can help guide you through the process and support you during this difficult time is essential. Wallace Stuart takes pride in providing personal service to each family they work with. We will spend as much time as necessary to ensure the funeral is arranged and carried out according to the wishes of the deceased and their loved ones.

We Provide Affordable Funeral Services in Glastonbury

Direct Cremation

If you are considering a direct cremation, it is an unattended cremation without a ceremony. This option is more stressful for families arranging funerals. Some people opt to have a spectacular celebration of life or memorial service instead because they want to remember their loved ones in the best way possible.

A direct cremation is an excellent choice for those who can’t afford the expense of a traditional funeral. At every step, we will work hard to ensure that you and your family receive the best possible care and service. Even if you choose a simple cremation without a formal funeral, you can be confident that your loved one will be treated with kindness and respect.

Cremation-only funerals are becoming increasingly popular as people look for simpler, more affordable ways to say goodbye to their loved ones. Here at Wallace Stuart, we understand that not everyone wants to use a funeral director. If you’re going to take care of all the logistics, paperwork, and preparation for the funeral, or you want some advice, then we are happy to help you. We will always agree on a cost with you so you can plan your finances accordingly.

Do It Your Way

If you want to take care of all the logistics, paperwork, and preparation for the funeral, or you want some advice, then we are happy to help you. We will always agree on a cost with you so you can plan your finances accordingly.

This option works well with our ethos: “a good funeral does not have to be expensive.” We can help with any aspect you may find difficult – need an estate car on the day? Help with completing paperwork or just some friendly advice? Just ask, and we will help in any way we can.

Traditional Funeral

When thinking about a traditional funeral, a few things usually come to mind – a hearse, black clothing, and a sombre mood. If this is the type of funeral you want, we can help make all the arrangements.

Working alongside local crematoriums and churches, we can help choose the perfect hearse and flowers and design the service order. We also work with wonderful Ministers and Celebrants who can create the perfect funeral ceremony for your loved one. This might include music choices, readings, and poems that are special to them.

No two families are the same, so we will work with you to create a perfect funeral for your loved ones and their unique personalities. We can make it happen whether you want something traditional or unique.

Simple Cremation

When someone dies, their loved ones may want to hold a funeral service to say goodbye and celebrate the deceased’s life. However, some people may not want a “traditional” funeral. If this is the case, there are simple cremation options available.

At our crematorium, we provide help and support to families who want a simple cremation. This includes meeting with you to discuss the funeral arrangements, helping with registration and documentation, and collecting the deceased. We also care for the deceased before the funeral and can provide a simple coffin or choose another one. A minister, celebrant, or humanist can take the service, and we can meet the family at the crematorium on the day of the funeral. We also have a funeral director on duty on the day of the funeral.

The cost of a simple cremation includes the cremation fee and an urn. In cases where the coroner is involved, there may be additional costs for medical certificates (cremations).
