Funerals Without a Funeral Director

Many people find comfort in taking more and more control over a funeral service and may wish to arrange the funeral without the services of a funeral director.  Such a funeral can sometimes be called a 'personalised' or 'independent' or 'family only' funeral. For further advice on funeral arrangements, please contact the Bereavement Services Office.
