Funeral Services & Information
Providing the standard of service you would expect from a modern funeral director.
Once upon a time, no one questioned the role of the funeral director or the order of events. Now however, everything is up for discussion – from the colour of the casket, to the venue, the style of service, and the flowers.
Because there’s no longer a set way to conduct a funeral, we’ve found that more than ever, families need a funeral director who can guide and support them in a down-to-earth and genuine way. They need someone who is easy to talk to, can offer fresh ideas, makes suggestions that ‘fit’ family dynamics, but also understands the need to respect tradition, values or beliefs.
The team at Grinter’s are those people – we provide dignified care, genuine advice and value across all our services, from traditional or contemporary Funeral Services to our Direct Cremation Service. Nothing is too much to ask, or too much trouble.
For a modern and refreshing approach and dignified care, contact us today.
Where to Start
Step 1: Phone Grinter’s Funeral Home
It’s amazing how much difference one call can make. First, we’ll answer any questions you may have. Then we’ll make a plan together about how to proceed from this point. This will include setting a time and place to meet with you and those to be involved in making funeral arrangements, as well as organising the transfer from the place where the death has occurred.
Step 2: Contact the next of kin and family
Being with those closest to you following a death provides a valuable support network. It is also helpful in deciding when everyone who will be involved in making the funeral arrangements can get together (especially important when different family members are out of town, or immediately unavailable).
Step 3: Contact the family doctor or attending physician to advise of the death
The doctor is responsible for issuing documentation required before a cremation or burial can take place. In the course of arranging the funeral, we will obtain these documents for you. In some situations the doctor is unable to issue these forms and the Coroner will need to be involved. If the death has occurred in a hospital or nursing home, the duty nurse or other staff member will often do this task for you.
