Information Needed by the Funeral Director

Help us assist you

Let us help you with arrangements

A funeral undertaker, funeral director, or mortician (all different names for the same person) is the main person that will be there to assist you in moving and preparing the mortal remains of the deceased for burial or cremation. The mortician/funeral director assisting you will also be there to help you with all the funeral arrangements that need to be made. We can take over the arrangements completely or just assist where you wish us to. Arranging the funeral provides an opportunity to create a unique commemoration of the Deceased and we will spend time helping you to do this.
