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.

Independent Funeral Directors in Clevedon

Brunel Funeral Directors is one of Bristol’s leading independent funeral directors and – although we aren’t funeral directors in Clevedon – we have been supporting bereaved families in our local community for more than 45 years.

As independent funeral directors near Clevedon, we like to do things a little different from other funeral providers in the area.

We understand that when you lose someone you love, it’s difficult to comprehend (especially if the death was sudden). That’s why we never rush our families and are on hand to offer compassion and support, every step of the way.

What we do

The role of a funeral director is varied. It encompasses practical organisation, support and guidance for the bereaved and liaison with a range of organisations (i.e. ministers, florists, charities, etc.).

Funeral Arrangements

Organising a funeral isn’t easy. However, visiting funeral directors near Clevedon can remove the burden at what is already an emotional time.

At Brunel Funeral Directors, we offer a comprehensive range of funeral services and packages and will sit down and talk you through the options to ensure your loved one gets the send-off they deserve.

Here we look at the different packages available:

  • Direct Cremation Service – a simple, dignified cremation with no attendees, minister or service – just the funeral director and bearers. This package is ideal if it was the descendants wish for a low-key ceremony and comes at a fixed price of £1495.
  • The Brunel Service – our most popular package – available from £1950. This package includes everything from the conveyance of the deceased into our comfortable funeral home to a simple coffin and hearse, doctor and minister fees, documentation for the cremation or burial and a 30-minute service – usually at Canford or South Bristol Crematorium at 9.00am, 9.30am or 10.00am.
  • The Bespoke Service – we give you the option to select individual items (i.e. specialist hearses, coffins, flower arrangements, music, etc.) to ensure your wishes, and those of the deceased’s, are reflected in the funeral arrangements. This tends to be the most expensive package but enables you to truly personalise the service and celebrate the life of your loved one.

Other funeral services

Some people think that funeral directors in Clevedon (or nearby) just help with the funeral arrangements and caring for the deceased at their funeral home. But that’s not the case.

We offer all kinds of floral tributes, here at Brunel Funeral Directors. So, whether you’re looking for a simple bouquet, a posy or bespoke letters and numbers, we can help. You can also arrange for flowers to be sent to our funeral home and we’ll take care of them until the service.

As well as helping to plan the funeral and arranging the flowers, compassionate care is a top priority for funeral directors near Clevedon, like us. We appreciate that everyone grieves in their own time and – although it’s not something we can fix or control – we can offer bereavement support for as long as you need (even after the funeral!).

Funeral plans

Thinking ahead and planning your funeral is not only a sensible way to ensure that you have the costs covered in the event of your death but secures your family’s future.

Although it’s not something all funeral directors in Clevedon offer, we provide pre-paid funeral plans from Golden Leaves.

Our funeral plans allow you to plan and pay for the funeral you want – not what your loved ones think you would have wanted. And the best bit? You can either pay for the plan in one lump sum (then it’s one less thing to worry about), flexible monthly instalments over 1-5 years or fixed monthly payments until you’re 90 years old.
