Coronavirus – Covid-19

We are able to arrange funeral services remotely via telephone, email, WhatsApp etc and have been doing so for many years. By being experts in this way of working, we are just as efficient as if we met face to face. The steps we are taking is to ensure potentially vulnerable clients are kept as safe as possible during this unprecedented time.

We can also come to your home and arrange funeral services from the comfort of your garden adhering to social distancing.

Over the coming days, it may be that more people are asked to self-isolate and therefore meeting with a funeral director would be impossible. To reassure the clients we work with, you will still receive the same level of care as we always give.

  • We will continue to listen to the latest Government advice and adjust what we do and how we do it accordingly.
  • It is important that we continue to look after the person who has died with the utmost dignity and we have now put steps in place in order to do this safely. This means our staff will be wearing full personal protective equipment (PPE) even when the risk is assumed to be low.
  • It will not be possible for our clients to spend time with the person who has died when they are with us.
  • We are able to offer attended services at crematoria and cemeteries/natural burial grounds. They all have their own rules regarding how many people can attend and we will make you aware of this at the time we make funeral arrangements with you.
  • We have arranged the most beautiful and meaningful memorial services at later dates and we are more than happy to talk you through different options when you are ready.
  • We can make face to face arrangements with you in your garden adhering to social distancing. We can also make funeral arrangements with you via email, telephone, Zoom, FaceTime, WhatsApp and any other channel you wish.

By already being an expert in arranging funerals remotely, we don’t want anyone to feel helpless if they have to self-isolate while they are grieving. There is so, so much we are able to do without you physically needing to meet us and we promise we will make everything as easy as we possibly can.

If you would like to talk to us, please call 01865 714130 any time of the day or night.

Our email address is info@theindividualfuneralcompany.co.uk and we will respond as soon as we see messages come through to us.

Should you want to meet with a funeral director, this is still possible but this is by appointment only by calling 01865 714130.
