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

 

Brunel Funeral Directors are leading independent funeral directors near Kingswood. We have close community ties and are willing to go the extra mile to help bereaved families in our local area.

Our team will care for your loved one until the day of the funeral, and can provide everything you need for the perfect funeral – including the floral arrangements, music and transport on the day of the service. We’ll talk you through the different options available and allow you to make the right decisions for you, your family, and the deceased in your own time.

To help you spread the cost of your funeral, we also provide pre-paid funeral plans from Golden Leaves. These not only save your family the financial heartache, but also allow you to specify what you want for your send-off.

 

Funeral arrangements

We understand that losing someone you love is never easy, and making the arrangements for the funeral can only add to the stress and sadness you’re experiencing.

Luckily, our funeral directors close to Kingswood are here to guide you every step of the way to ease the burden – ensuring your loved one gets the send-off they truly deserve. We provide a number of funeral services and packages, including burials and cremations to suit all needs and religious beliefs.

  • The Brunel Cremation – an all-inclusive cremation service. Includes the conveyancing of the deceased into our care, preparation of the body for viewings, bearers, transport and a simple 20-minute service, that’s carried out with compassion and care, at either Canford, South Bristol, Westerleigh or Haycombe Crematorium.

 

  • Direct Cremation – a simple and affordable cremation service starting from £1250. This package is ideal if the deceased requested a fuss-free yet dignified send-off or if you’d like to commemorate their life at a later date (i.e. to mark a birthday or anniversary). On the day, there’s no ceremony as such – only the funeral director and pallbearers will be present.

 

  • The Bespoke Service – a traditional funeral service that’s tailored to the wishes of the deceased and the rest of your family. Opting for a bespoke coffin, hearse, floral tribute or dress code that reflects their character and personality allows you to lay them to rest in a way that’s unique to them – and just how they would have wanted.

 

If you’re unsure which package is right for your loved one, or you’d like to discuss your requirements in more detail with our funeral directors near Kingswood, you’re welcome to pay us a visit at our funeral home, or we can come to your home in Kingswood.

 

Other services

Almost all funeral directors in Kingswood will help with the funeral arrangements – but here at Brunel Funeral Directors, our services extend way beyond that.

For example, if you’d like colourful sprays or letters and wreaths to adorn the coffin, we’ll be more than happy to prepare and care for them until the day of the funeral.

Want a posy or heart-shaped tribute incorporating your loved one’s favourite flowers to put on their grave? This is also no problem for our funeral directors – just let us know exactly what you need.

Aside from offering floral tributes, our funeral directors close to Kingswood can offer a full masonry service. We provide a selection of memorial headstones and font styles, allowing you to choose one that perfectly reflects the deceased. And if you’re looking to have the name of your loved one engraved on an existing gravestone that needs cleaning and repairing, we can put together a no-obligation quote.

We appreciate that everyone grieves in their own way. However, having memorial keepsakes can bring some much-needed comfort and help to keep the deceased’s memory alive. That’s why, at our funeral home, we provide memory teddies, glass pebbles, paperweights, and fingerprint jewellery and keyrings.

 

Funeral plans

Planning ahead and taking out a funeral plan is a sensible decision to make – one that can save your family the onus of making the arrangements when you’ve passed away.

Our pre-paid funeral plans from Golden Leaves allow you to choose what type of service you want, which music you’d like to be played during the service, and what type of coffin you’d prefer.

You have several options when it comes to paying for your funeral plan. If you’d prefer to get it out of the way, and you have the budget to do so, you can pay in full upfront. Or you can pay in monthly instalments over 1-5 years.

Whichever payment method suits you, you can trust that the price won’t change from the day you take it out, even with the rising inflation rate!
