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

All funeral directors in Bishopsworth should arrange care for the deceased, offer guidance and support to the family, help with the funeral arrangements and provide professional advice – easing the burden at this distressing time.

However, as independent funeral directors, we like to do things a little different at Brunel Funeral Directors.

We understand there is no right or wrong way to grieve. Some people find comfort in talking and sharing fond memories about the deceased with funeral directors in Bishopsworth, whilst others prefer to put on a brave face and let their emotions out behind closed doors, usually after the funeral.

That’s why, at Brunel Funeral Directors, we never rush our families and will give you all the time you need to make the right decisions for you and your loved one. Our team is here to offer bereavement support for as long as you need, even after the funeral has taken place.

Funeral arrangements

Organising a funeral for someone you love can be stressful. There is a lot to consider to ensure you give them the send-off they deserve – like the type of funeral service, the hymns or music, readings, flowers and masonry. And it’s for this reason that many people seek assistance from funeral directors in Bishopsworth or close by, like us.

We offer several funeral services and packages and work hard to keep our prices low and standards high. One of our most popular funeral packages is the Brunel Cremation. This is all-inclusive of the conveyancing of the deceased from the place of death to our comfortable funeral home, a basic coffin, hearse and a 20-minute service at one of the local crematoriums (i.e. Canford, South Bristol or Westerleigh), as well as doctors and ministers’ fees.

We also provide a Direct Cremation – a simple, dignified service with no attendees, minister or ceremony, just the funeral director and bearers. This type of service is perfect if the descendant wanted a no-fuss send-off.

Alternatively, the Bespoke Service is a traditional funeral service that reflects the wishes of both you and the deceased. We give you the choice of specialist hearses, coffins, floral tributes, music, etc. Although it tends to be the most expensive package, it enables you to personalise the ceremony and celebrate the life of your loved one.

Other funeral services

Our funeral directors near Bishopsworth don’t just help with the funeral service. We can also take care of the flower arrangements – whether it be coffin sprays, heart tributes, letters, numbers or wreaths – giving you one less thing to worry about.

As well as this, we have a large selection of scatter tubes and caskets available both online and at our funeral home, so if you don’t see something suitable, please get in touch.

At Brunel Funeral Directors, we provide a full masonry service – offering many types of marble, stone and granite headstones and an assortment of font styles. Memory teddy’s that are made from items of clothing, fingerprint jewellery in silver, gold or rose gold, and glass pebbles and paperweights are also available.

Funeral plans

We often assist families with funeral arrangements and have also helped people to plan their own funeral. So, if you’re thinking ahead and want to take out a funeral plan, you’re in capable hands with us.

Though it’s not something all funeral directors in Bishopsworth offer, we provide pre-paid funeral plans from Golden Leaves. Not only do these allow you to plan and pay for the funeral you want (not what someone thinks you might have wanted!), but they can also save your relatives the heartache and expense once you’ve passed.

With our funeral plans, you have the choice to pay in one lump sum or monthly instalments, spreading the cost over a fixed term. And the best bit is, our pre-paid plans cover the cost of the service, regardless of inflation.
