Managing funeral financing in a church

When it comes to a complete service in a church, along with either burial or cremation, funeral financing can become complicated. At Joseph A Hey & Son, we aim to make this process as clear and transparent as possible. In addition to disbursements, such as doctor’s bills or flowers, you’ll pay for a funeral director for services such as:

  • Making funeral arrangements, including liaising with a minister, doctors, cemeteries, and hospitals
  • Providing a coffin

  • Providing a hearse and a limousine to return the family
  • Care and attendance of the deceased prior to the funeral, including viewings by appointment

Our funeral directors have extensive experience arranging funeral services in Bradford and throughout West Yorkshire and can offer you guidance while you consider your costs and options.

Cremation only options

It is also possible to arrange for a cremation without an accompanying service. In this instance, Joseph A Hey & Son will scatter the cremated remains in the Garden of Remembrance at no additional cost, unless requested otherwise by relatives or in a will. As cremation is provided as a third-party service, disbursement must be paid at varying rates across the country.

Cardboard coffins

Spending large amounts of money on an extravagant coffin may sometimes seem at odds with the personality and wishes of a deceased individual. For an environmentally-friendly solution, a cardboard coffin can serve as a possible replacement. We supply our own cardboard coffins, made from corrugated board and an internal lining that fulfils all practical requirements for either a traditional funeral or a simple eco-burial. Recycled materials make up 25% of the base and 75% of the pillow.
