Expanding the number of funeral options

Funerals are a chance for people to come together and celebrate the life of a loved one who has passed on. What we strive to do for mourners is provide the most touching, unique and personalised services possible. To this end, our Birmingham based funeral directors take the time to listen to each family’s individual requirements and then we do everything possible to ensure that they are met.

The funeral industry has changed a great deal over the years. Traditionally funerals were religious affairs that reaffirmed the beliefs of the deceased and provided comfort for their loved ones. While they are still common today and include a wide variety of symbolism there has been a big rise in non-religious and alternative services. These are favoured because they can be more personal and commemorate the deceased.

There are more choices than ever with practically every aspect of a funeral. The family of the deceased, or the departed themselves if they plan ahead and set out their wishes, can determine what type of service they want, whether it will be a traditional or non-traditional one. There has even been a rise in the number of people opting for direct burials or cremations, forgoing the traditional funeral all together.

After the type of service is decided there are many other things to think about including the coffin, the hearse, and the details such as music and notices. Each of these allow additional opportunities for personalisation and celebrating the life of the deceased.

At Darren W. Faragher, our funerals, both religious and non-religious, always meet the high standards. We understand that every culture prefers to pay tribute in different ways and as such, we will respect the wishes of all who come to us.

If you require assistance from our funeral directors in organising arrangements for funerals, our long established team in Birmingham can help.
