FRED HAMER FUNERAL DIRECTORS

Burial Burials most commonly take place in churchyards and cemeteries. Normally, subject to availability and local regulations, you can opt for either a new or existing grave. Existing graves Burial in an existing grave requires that you have the deeds to the plot and there is sufficient room for additional interments. We can assist in locating the deeds if they are not currently in your possession. New graves New grave plots are purchased from the Local Authority. In some cases, adjacent plots can be reserved or purchased at the same time for the future interment of a surviving spouse or family member, for example. Burial fees Fees may be applied to both new and existing plots, for things like digging or opening, and the removal or replacement of existing headstones. We can advise you on such costs, which vary from area to area. Alternative burials There is no obligation to arrange a funeral in a churchyard or cemetery. Tell us your requirements and we will do our utmost to accommodate alternative setting requests, previous examples having included vault, woodland and maritime burials. A funeral abroad Let us know if you wish to arrange a funeral in another country and we will be happy to handle repatriation and other arrangements on your behalf. Cremation While most crematoria incorporate their own chapel, you may wish for the main service to take place in a church or other venue before moving to the crematorium. Inform us of your preferences and we will manage all necessary arrangements. Your options after a cremation When arranging a funeral, cremation may be your clearly favoured option over a burial. What can be harder to decide on, however, is a final resting place for the ashes – a choice that can be affected by numerous factors. This decision shouldn't be taken lightly and could take some time to reach. We can guide you through the various possibilities, provide a quote for memorial masonry, and discuss any costs and local regulations that might be involved. Some crematoria will hold the ashes for a limited time, or we can keep them at our funeral home – at no extra charge – until your decision is made. Scattering ashes Families can decide on one or more places of relevance to their loved one and, by scattering their ashes there, feel they are content, or even continuing on a journey. Permission from local authorities may be required to scatter ashes in certain places, and we can advise on such controls. Popular settings include: •crematorium grounds •on a family grave •in your garden •places of fond memories •in woodland or on moorland •at sea •abroad
