DJ Bewley Funeral Directors

One the Day

The funeral director will guide you on what to do as the funeral unfolds, whilst ensuring that we remain in the background during proceedings to give you the space and time that your family, friends and you will need on the day. The conductor will always be at hand, making sure that everything runs smoothly and your every wish is catered for before, during and after the service.

You may arrange to be collected from your home address or use your own cars to the funeral home. The cortege will convey mourners to the funeral service, returning them to the funeral home or back to your home address.

During the service, there is no set protocol for entering the chapel whether you follow in behind the coffin or wish to be seated first as is the same for seating arrangements but nevertheless if you give some consideration to the principal mourners and advise us beforehand, we will see that mourners are guided appropriately. After the service, our funeral director will suggest that the principal mourners greet people and thank them for attending the service. This is not essential but is generally welcomed by people who have taken the trouble to attend the service. Before leaving the funeral, the mourners will be invited to see any flowers that have been sent. Should the weather be inclement, we do have brollies in the funeral limousines. If you are using your own transport, you may like to consider bringing your own. There is no set dress code for a funeral. In our opinion
mourners should dress as they consider appropriate to express their feelings on the day and to recognise whose funeral it is. This may well be a black suit but conversely it could be a sports shirt if the circumstances dictate. The general feeling is that even young children should be encouraged to attend a funeral.
