Arranging the Funeral
As caring and professional funeral providers, we assist you with every aspect of the funeral to ensure that it not only matches but exceeds your expectations. A death in the family necessitates practical coordination of many tasks in a very short space of time. At TATE Funeral Services we understand the practicalities of what needs to be done and will caringly and unobtrusively remove much of the anxiety from grieving family members at this difficult time.
An initial meeting is held at your home or our funeral home to help you plan the events of the following days. Our delivery of funeral services is a three-part process, which we explain and document for you carefully and professionally at the outset.
- Professional Services (these are the services the funeral director performs: e.g. arranging the funeral, preparing the deceased and conducting the funeral).
- Funeral merchandise (these are items that the funeral director provides for the family: e.g. catering, coffins, caskets, memorial books and urns)
- Funeral disbursements (these are other people and organisations that we deal with to carry out the funeral: e.g. cemetery, crematorium, civil celebrant, newspaper, florist and doctor)
