About Funerals

When somebody dies, there are not only feelings of loss or grief to be dealt with, there are also very often many practical matters to be sorted out, including arranging a funeral. Most people are happy to put this aspect in the hands of funeral directors (undertakers); and we are fortunate in Enfield that we have a number of reputable and professional firms to whom this can be entrusted.

If a Church of England funeral is stipulated, the funeral directors will typically arrange for the service to take place at a local cemetery or crematorium, and will ask the vicar or other minister of the parish in which the deceased person lived to conduct it (unless another priest – someone who is a relative or friend of the family, for instance – is invited to do so).
