Has a loved one recently died? Seeking advice and support from funeral directors in Thornbury can be very comforting at such a difficult and emotional time.
Strictly speaking, we are not funeral directors in Thornbury, but our bright and welcoming funeral home is just a stone’s throw away in Westbury on Trym. And our caring and compassionate team, here at Brunel Funeral Directors, has been helping bereaved families in Thornbury for more than 45 years.
One thing that sets us apart from other funeral directors in Thornbury is that we will always give you and your family time to grieve. We will never rush you into making any decisions and, instead, assist you in giving your loved one the funeral they deserve, for a price you can afford.
What we do
Funeral services and packages
As leading independent funeral directors near Thornbury, we take on the burden of planning a funeral and follow yours and the deceased’s wishes as closely as possible. We offer a range of funeral services and packages, including:
A simple, yet dignified, cremation with no attendees, ministers or service – just the funeral directors and bearers – from £1495.
Direct cremations offer an affordable alternative to a full funeral service – without compromising on the quality of care. As there is no service, you can choose how to celebrate their life and bid farewell in a simple, fuss-free way.
From the collection of the deceased and transportation to the crematorium by private ambulance to a simple foiled coffin, doctor’s fees, cremation fees, and the required paperwork – all disbursements are included in this package.
A 30-minute service held at either Canford or South Bristol Crematorium and delivered with complete compassion and care – starting from £1950.
The fee also includes:
- conveyancing of the deceased into our care
- care and preparation of the body for the service and viewings
- completion of documents and arrangements
- provision of a hearse, funeral director and bearers on the day
- scattering of ashes at the crematorium (or the option to collect within 14-days of the funeral)
A personalised service that ensures the deceased’s wishes are reflected in the funeral arrangements.
The price depends on the individual items you select (i.e. specialist hearses, coffins, flowers, music, memorabilia, etc.).
Although it often works out to be the most expensive package, we are very transparent with our costs and can offer a tailored quote. Before we move forward or discuss alternative options, we will always make sure you’re happy.
Additional Funeral Services
Most people assume that funeral directors in Thornbury only help you to organise the basics. But not us at Brunel Funeral Directors. We are here to help you every step of the way and offer a range of other services.
Our team will assist you in choosing between a cremation and burial and the type of service, taking into account yours and your loved one’s religious beliefs and traditions. We can take care of the floral arrangements too – whether it’s a single flower, posy or wreath; a large bouquet or bespoke letters and numbers. You can also have flowers sent to our Bristol funeral home so they can travel with the coffin on the day of the funeral.
More importantly, we understand that bereavement, grief and loss can cause many symptoms and affect people in different ways. There is no right or wrong way to feel when you lose someone you care about, but our funeral directors near Thornbury can offer bereavement support for as long as you need. Even after the funeral has taken place.
Although it’s not something all funeral directors in Thornbury offer as a service, Brunel Funeral Directors provide pre-paid funeral plans from Golden Leaves.
Increasingly more people are choosing to take out a funeral plan as it’s the best way to ensure you have the costs covered in the event of your death. It can also save your family the heartache and expense of arranging your funeral and gives you the option to coordinate every aspect.
There are various ways in which you can pay for a funeral plan, depending on your financial situation. For example, you can pay in one lump sum (getting it out of the way), flexible monthly instalments or fixed monthly payments.
