In your own time

We are usually called in just after a death and we are keenly aware that it is a highly emotional time. No matter what the circumstances, bereaved family and friends are dealing with sadness, shock, and grief, sometimes for the first time. We understand, and we will never pressure you to make a decision. We are there to help you and if you feel you are not in the right frame of mind at that time, we will wait until you are ready.

In accordance with your wishes

Many people don’t really think about organising a funeral until they need to and family members and friends don’t always discuss their own wishes, so deciding what to do can sometimes be difficult. Beckfords’ staff will be on hand to guide you through the funeral process with empathy, sensitivity and care. Based on your thoughts and our years of experience, we will help you decide on the type of funeral that is the right send-off for your loved one.

To the highest standards

At Beckfords our team conduct themselves with the utmost professional integrity, dignity and respect. We follow strict guidelines in health and safety and rigorous regulatory safeguards and controls enabling us to be members of The National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors.
