COVID-19 Information

Coronavirus COVID-19 Pandemic

This is a very concerning time for everyone right now. We want to reassure you that we are continuing to take the greatest care of our families and arrange funerals in the best possible way. We are keeping up to date with the latest government guidance on funerals and will keep our families informed of any changes.

If someone has passed away at home.

Please contact us at any time, we still cover a 24hr service. We will ask you for the normal information, but we will now also include asking if you know if the deceased or anyone in the property has tested positive for coronavirus. When we arrive, our men will be wearing PPE as a standard precaution, in the event that someone could be asymptomatic. We ask that you follow social distancing whilst our staff are with you.

Arranging the funeral

Where possible we are trying to keep you safe as well as our staff. We will arrange funerals over the phone wherever possible, to minimise contact. Once done we will send the funeral director to your home to hand you the paperwork that has been completed, it will be clearly labelled for you to sign. It is nice for you to meet the funeral director so you know who will be looking after you on the day of the funeral.

If you come to the funeral home to sign the paperwork then you will be asked to wear a mask and sanitise your hands.

All paperwork will be laid out ready for you visit and clearly marked for signing.

  • There are gloves if you wish, masks and automatic hand sanitiser are available in reception.
  • No more than 2 clients may visit the home at any time.
  • We regularly clean all surfaces in the funeral home and use a sanitising fogging machine to sanitise the air.

Note:

During this lockdown we are not offering limousines on funerals. We will bring the hearse to an address should family want to follow to the crematorium.
If the deceased has been tested positive for COVID-19 then due to the airborne nature of the virus we cannot permit visiting in the chapel.
We also cannot take fingerprints for jewellery but you do have the option of ashes into glass keepsakes.

We apologise for any additional stress this may cause but we have a duty of care to you our client and also to the health and safety of our staff.

What we do

As independent funeral directors, you can rely on us to provide everything you need for the perfect funeral. And we allow you to make the right decisions for you and your loved one, in your own time.

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?

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.

To find out more about our funeral payment options, contact us today.
