As experienced funeral directors, we understand that every client has unique needs and wishes, and that every person will have to deal with bereavement in their own way. This is why we offer our clients the chance to spend some time with their loved one before the funeral, either in our own Chapel of Rest or at another location of their choice. As part of this, we can offer transport of the deceased to a suitable resting place within 15 miles of the place where they passed away.
Many people have questions or concerns about viewing their loved one, but we will always be on hand to answer any enquiries to put your mind at ease. When you opt for the viewing to take place in our Chapel of Rest, you will be in private, comfortable surroundings where you can take all the time you need to say goodbye or simply sit with the person before the funeral.
Many people take great comfort from the viewing and find that it helps them through the grieving process, as it alleviates their worries, helps them to accept the loss, and brings a sense of closure as they are able to speak to the person one last time. It can also be reassuring to see a loved one at peace and understand that they are not suffering. Some people choose to bring personal items and mementos to place in the coffin, such as letters or family photographs.
Of course, this is completely optional, and many people prefer not to view the deceased person. This is a very personal choice, and one that we will always respect completely. When you are working with us, you can rest assured that our team of Birmingham funeral directors will do all they can to meet your needs and provide care, support and fitting funeral arrangements. Just get in touch for further information about our wide range of sensitive and professional services.
