The team at Brunel Funeral Directors is here to guide you every step of the way – helping to ease the burden of organising a funeral (either for yourself or someone you love).

Funeral arrangements

When you’re mourning the loss of a close friend or family member, making the arrangements for the funeral can add to the stress and sadness. That’s why many bereaved families turn to funeral directors in Bedminster for assistance.

Our team will work closely with you and your family to ensure that the deceased gets the send-off they deserve.

The first thing we will need to establish is what type of service your loved one would have wanted if they could choose.

We offer a number of funeral services and packages, including:

  • The Brunel Cremation – an all-inclusive cremation service for £1995 that includes the conveyancing of the deceased into our funeral home, preparation of the body for viewings, a hearse, bearers, and a simple 20-minute cremation service delivered with compassion and care.
  • Direct Cremation – the ideal package for those who wanted a fuss-free, dignified send-off. It includes a simple service with no minister, mourners, or ceremony on the day. Only the funeral directors are present and you can commemorate the life of your loved one at a later date, however you like.
  • The Bespoke Service – whether it be a specialist hearse or an oversized coffin, we can personalise a traditional funeral service to accommodate both yours and the deceased’s wishes. Though the cost depends on the individual items chosen, our prices are transparent so you needn’t worry about hidden fees.

At Brunel Funeral Directors, we offer a friendly and welcoming environment for you to talk. So why not come and visit us at our funeral home?

We’d love to discuss your requirements and talk you through the available options over a cup of tea or coffee.

Other services

Our funeral directors in Bedminster can assist with all aspects of the funeral – from the order of service to floral tributes, music, caskets, jewellery, and memorabilia.

So, whether you’re wanting a single flower, posy, shaped tribute, or letters to spell out their name, this can all be taken care of by Brunel Funeral Directors. You can also have the flowers sent to our funeral home. Just let us know what works best for you.

Funeral plans

Something that sets Brunel Funeral Directors apart from others in the area is that we provide pre-paid funeral plans from Golden Leaves.

Planning ahead and taking out a funeral plan is a sensible decision.

It will save your family the heartache and financial onus of arranging (and paying for) your funeral.  Plus, it gives you the opportunity to have your say on the type of service you want, what hymns you’d like to be sung, what music you’d like to be played, and the type of coffin.

And the best thing about our pre-paid funeral plans? Regardless of inflation, the price won’t change from when you initially took out the plan.

In terms of paying, you have several options. You can either pay upfront in one lump sum, flexible monthly instalments over 1-5 years, or fixed monthly payments until your 90th birthday.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I do when someone dies?

When someone you love dies, it can be difficult to comprehend – especially if the death was sudden. But there are a few steps you need to follow.

If someone dies at home unexpectedly, call 111 and ask for advice. The death may need to be reported to a coroner, so a post-mortem or inquest can be carried out to determine the cause of death. This may take some time, which will delay the funeral.

If they were unwell or suffered from a terminal illness, and their death was expected, get in touch with the family doctor. They will issue a medical certificate to allow the death to be registered. After speaking with the GP practice, and when you’re feeling up to it, you can then contact funeral directors in Bedminster to help make arrangements for the funeral.

More detailed information on what to do when someone passes away can be found in our First Steps section and on the government website.

How much will the funeral cost?

The average price of a funeral in the UK is around £4,000 but can vary depending on the type of service, transport, coffin, funeral director’s fees, flowers, and your precise location.

A traditional burial will typically cost more than a cremation service – with a Direct Cremation being the most cost-effective option (available from £1,150). This is a fuss-free cremation for those who requested a low-key send-off and allows family and friends to scatter the ashes and celebrate the life of their loved ones at a later date.

Whilst our funeral and cremation services include a simple coffin and transport in the price, specialist hearses and personalised coffins are available but will add to the overall funeral costs. The same applies for bespoke floral tributes, scatter tubes and caskets, jewellery and memorabilia, and masonry.

It’s important to note that, whilst funeral directors in Bedminster will help reduce the burden of organising the funeral, they all have their own fees and packages. That’s why, if you’re worried about the costs, it’s a sensible idea to ask them for a price list before you start to make the arrangements.

If you’d like to find out more about the cost of our funeral packages and services, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our funeral directors near Bedminster, here at Brunel Funeral Directors.
