Charter for the Bereaved
We have adopted the Charter for the Bereaved issued by the Institute of Cemetery and Crematoria Management. The Charter is a commitment to improving the service by confronting rather than disguising the death experience, and by reducing ignorance. It defines the rights of every individual who experiences bereavement, and gives the bereaved greater influence over the arrangements of funerals, thereby controlling costs and offering more satisfaction.
The Charter guarantees 33 rights and these are integrated into the services. Indeed, we see the Charter Rights as a minimum and our service extends well beyond these requirements. If you require a hard copy of the Charter, please contact us.
We also adhere to the ICCM's Guiding Principles of Burial & Cremation Services.
