Frequently asked questions in Witham

  • Do you provide funerals for babies and children?

    It has been our privilege to conduct funerals for babies and children over many years. We see this as a sacred trust and it has become an area of expertise for our teams. We understand that these are often the most painful funerals to arrange and we will support you at every stage, ensuring that you have as much choice as possible as you make all the necessary decisions. We are also privileged to support local charity Forever Finley, which provides 3D infant hand and feet castings for bereaved parents.

  • Do I need to make an appointment to arrange a funeral?

    It is not strictly necessary to make an appointment, but most people find that it is a good idea. You are welcome to drop into our offices, but it often takes a couple of hours to talk through the arrangements that you would like, and to make a range of choices, so it is a good idea to make sure that our arrangement rooms will be free for you to take your time and think things through quietly. Some people prefer to make arrangements over the phone, especially if they have a good idea of what they want, or are making arrangements from some distance away. Others prefer a virtual meeting, or to brief us by email, and that’s fine too.

  • Can I choose my own funeral celebrant?

    You are very welcome to choose your own celebrant for your funeral. Many people already know and choose a minister or a local place of worship. However, you can opt to have a friend or family member to lead the funeral service. Due to the emotion of the occasion, most people do prefer to use a celebrant and we can recommend suitable professional celebrants for all faiths or none, and from many traditions or cultures.
