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.

Funeral Directors Hanham

Mourning the loss of a loved one can be hard – especially if the death was unexpected. But seeking advice from funeral directors in Hanham can bring great comfort at this emotional time, and Brunel Funeral Directors is one of Bristol’s leading independent funeral directors.

What we do

Here at Brunel Funeral Directors, we recognise that everyone grieves in their own way. Some like to share fond memories of their loved ones, while others prefer to put on a brave face and let their emotions out behind closed doors.

Setting us apart from other funeral directors in Hanham, we refuse to rush our families. So take as much time as you need – and we’ll be here to support you every step of the way.

Funeral arrangements

Organising a funeral can be difficult but, with the help of our experienced team, we can ease the burden and provide everything you need to bid farewell to your loved one.

At Brunel Funeral Directors, we work hard to keep our standards high and our prices low. We provide a variety of funeral services and packages, including:

  • The Brunel Cremation – an all-inclusive service for £1995. It includes the conveyancing of the deceased to our funeral home, preparation of the body for viewings, the provision of a hearse and pallbearers, and a simple 20-minute service carried out with compassion and care.
  • Direct Cremation – not everyone wants a traditional/religious funeral service. And starting from £1150, our direct cremation is an affordable alternative with no minister, mourners, or ceremony. Perfect if it was the descendant’s wish for a low-key, dignified funeral.
  • The Bespoke Service – give your loved one the send-off they truly deserve by personalising the service with a specialist hearse, coffin, flowers, music, and additional limousines for the family. Though the cost of our bespoke service can vary depending on the specific items you choose, we will discuss alternative options to ensure complete satisfaction, and we provide transparent fees and tailored quotes.

Whether you know which funeral service to choose or not, our funeral directors near Harman can talk you through the different options in further detail and help you to make the arrangements over a cup of tea.

Additional funeral services

Funeral directors in Harman will help you to plan the funeral, advise on the most suitable packages for your budget, and consider the deceased’s wishes. But here at Brunel Funeral Directors, we do so much more than that.

We ensure that every aspect of the service – whether it be a cremation or burial – is perfectly executed.

We will take care of the floral arrangements on your behalf, just let us know what you want (i.e. a single flower, posy, wreaths, shaped or number tributes). You can also arrange for the flowers to be sent to our funeral home in Westbury on Trym if you’d prefer.

A selection of scatter tubes and caskets can be found on our website, but if you don’t see what you’re looking for, get in touch as we have a vast range at our funeral home too.

Keepsakes such as glass pebbles, paperweights, fingerprint jewellery, and memory tables are also available. And as you’d expect from funeral directors in Hanham, we provide a full masonry service.

Funeral plans

Increasingly more people are thinking ahead and making arrangements for their funeral – and it’s with good reason.

Taking out a funeral plan gives you the peace of mind that you have the costs covered in the event of your death. This not only saves your family the heartache and financial stress of organising your funeral, but it also allows you to choose the service you want, which music you’d like to be played, and the type of coffin.

Though it’s not something all funeral directors in Hanham offer, we provide pre-paid plans from Golden Leaves that allow you to secure your family’s future.

With our funeral plans, you can pay in one lump sum – giving you one less thing to worry about – or in monthly instalments to spread the cost over a fixed term.
