What happens next

We’re here to help

Once you are ready to arrange the funeral, simply give us a call on 0121 476 9111 and we’ll make an appointment to discuss the arrangements at a time and place convenient to you.

We have private arranging rooms at all of our offices, but we are equally happy to come to your home if that suits you better.

It may take several meetings to finalise all of the details, so you don’t need to feel pressured into making all the decisions at the first meeting.

We want you to be comfortable with every aspect of the arrangements. If you need time to think about questions we ask you or you wish to discuss matters with other family members or friends, that’s fine too.

Arranging a funeral PDF


The type of funeral

The first thing to consider before you decide what kind of funeral ceremony you want to arrange, is whether the funeral is going to be a cremation or burial.



The type of service

There are various types of considerations when it comes to the service. This includes choosing between a religious or non-religious ceremony and the person who will lead the funeral, the Celebrant.



Ceremony options

There are an enormous range of options when it comes to personalising the funeral ceremony itself. This can include choosing the hearse, flowers, spoken tributes, music and order of service cards.



Wish to thank all staff at Mortons for being helpful, caring, understanding at my fathers funeral. Used the same director at mums funeral 10 yrs ago so recommend. Made the day a bit easier on a sad day.
