Latest local and national funeral news

Our Funerals to help you during this period

During the Covid ID Pandemic, our aim is to work within guidelines and legislation but offer you your human right to say farewell with a form of ceremony and service. To this end our 50 seat Chapel of Rest remains open for close family (15 persons areallowed to enable safe distancing) to hold a service lead by our Celebrant who will conduct either Christian or Humanist services, or by your Minister of choice. Operating In a safe and curtailed framework, there have to be some restrictions and we are sure you will understand the following:

- Our limousines will not operate during this period to minimise proximity
-Our offices are open only for essential contact bu appointment - not for a casual drop-in service: this is to make sure that all families are protected.

- Our 24 hour telephone service is of course fully available to support you all of the time
- All arrangements of both funerals and services will be by telephone and email to minimise contact until we get together on the day
- Collection of cash donations will not operate during this period but we do provide a free online tribute pagefor you to share both the funeral notice and to collect donations online, as well as create a tribute page of memories that can be shared by wider family who may wish to participate in this way and light candles etc.

- One face to face visit wiol be made at the door of your home prior to the funeral for signature of forms and handover of personal items
-Where viewing is agreed, we will meet with the agreed number of visitors on teh first visit and will offer you a key so that you have out of hours access also.
- We request that payments are made by debit card or BACS wherever possible
- We are operating a take home servioce, where the body of your loved one is brought home before the funeral - but only in cases where a swab test has shown no Covid 19 infection and where no member of the family is showing symptoms or isolating or shielding.Similarly for natural cause deaths with negatice Coviod swab test, we will allow you time to spend with your loved one prior to the service with an open coffin. Sadly in cases where Covid 19 is positive the coffin must be closed but we will of course offer a full service of farewell in our chapel - even more imporatnt when visits have been restricted by nursing homes/hospitals.

To help during this difficult and worrying period we have reduced costs as we do not believe that we can offer a streamlined service at the same cost as a funeral within normal circumstances. However our costs are fully up to date and include Bradford Council's raised 2020 costs which apply from 8th June.Please note that our funerals include include our offer of a prior service of farewell and life celebration at our Chapel for close family - with facilities for webcasting of the service for family who cannot join us. We continue to offer the option of direct cremation only followed by a later celebration of life, and we have shown the restricted service that Bradford Council; have offered at the Crematorium from 8th June..

Our Intimate Family Funeral Service (based on Cremation) Our Traditional Family Funeral Service (based on Cremation)

This funeral offers families the opportunity to say farewell and celebrate life within our new family chapel (for limited numbers of 15 during the pandemic - but at a much reduced price which we feel fairly reflects the restrictions we are all enforced to apply during the risk of the spread of Coronavirus. This funeral is based on a choice of closed coffin, but we do still offer viewing by arrangement where families feel it is necessary to them and where the cause of death is not Covid 19 in origin (i.e. where a swab test has been taken) The additional cost for the option of viewing is shown with each funeral.

This funeral entails meeting at our premises, for a family focused service at a leisurely pace of up to 45 mins to an hour led by our Celebrant,or your Minister, with your choice of 3-4 pieces of music which we will source and play for you, and family contributions to the service if desired. Our new family space seats 50 during normal times of operation but during this period we are restricting attendamce to just close family - approx 15 people - and we will advise with each funeral. This is so that we can offer a spread out, safet space. It is an opportunity to both celebrate life and say farewell under no time pressure, and to place single flowers which we will provide.

Our complimentary services include the enlargement and framing of your chosen photograph, single flowers to placek, wooden shapes for childremn to decorate, an online tribute web page area for family to share and build on, an online notice, online donations to share and watch together, keepsake printed Order of Service, a Webcast service for wider family to participate in real time. Plus two memorial evants - stars at Christmas and a tree planting.

The actual Cremation is carried out the following day with no mourners present - and although some people pause for thought at this, when you think carefully about it, you are not present for the actual cremation in any case (unless your faith requires it). So this is actually no different from holding a service at any Crematorium Chapel and then leaving before the coffin is taken for Cremation: the difference is that you are allowed more leisurely time to say what you need to say, to contribute and to create a memorable and personal service that is supportive during such a sad time.

By arrangement the private service may be videod for family to keep and send to other members who cannot attend. The fee for this is additional and will be advised on request. The webcast fee is included in the cost.

Costs - £2,741 (closed coffin) / £2,911 (with prior visit to spend time with your loved one's open coffin)

Following the announcement that Bradford Council will now allow nly a Minister or Celebrant into the Crematorium, to deliver a brief 20 minute service with 2 pieces of music and Committal, we have created a traditional hearse only service with procession that will allow you to have a prior full 45 minute to an hour's service at our Chapel, with procession either from the family home (or past teh family home en route to teh Crematorium) and also procession after the service at our Chapel to the Crematorium. For the Bradford Council part of things at the Crematorium, just 10 mourners are allowed inside for teh Committal, whilst a further 10 may wait outside.However, at our Chapel, the prior service will allow 15 mopurners to attend, plus a further 12 people via webcast, so that additional family members who may be at a distance or isolating, may also participate.

The funeral includes procession from home if desired, or you may opt to meet at our priovate chapel, a wood veneer coffin, all professional services, full staff to carry the coffin and assist with transfer, the use of our private chapel for up to 15 family members, with webcast for wider family to participate, your choice of 3-4 pieces of music, printed keepsake order of service and framed,enlarged photograph, single flowers for family to place, wooden tokens for children to decorate and all our complimentary additions. Following the private service led by our Celebrant or your Minister, we will process to the Crematorium , where up to 10 mourners may go i9nto the chapel and 10 may stand outside whilst the coffin is taken in for a few words of plus Committaland a concluding piece of music. The Crematoriua in Bradford have no facilities to webcast this part of teh service..

£3,311 (closed coffin and full service at our premises) and £3,481 (where open coffin is desired and practicable).


Bradford Council Crematoria Based Brief Service

You may opt to have a brief, restricted 20 minute service at teh Crematoria Chapel only, where Bradford Council are now allowing 10 people inside the chapel and 10 people outside. However, the service is limited to a strict 20 minutes with two pieces of music, no-one allowed to touch or place anything on teh coffin and fines imposed should either service lengeth or numbers exceed the stipulated rules.

Obviously with high volume of services, there will be cleaning required in between each one so this is of course a very restricted option.

The cost is exactly teh same as the cost our funerals with a prior service in our private chapel of rest.

£3,311 (closed coffin and brief Crematorium service) and £3,481 (open coffin for prior viewing and brief Crematorium Service).

We do advise that you look at our Intimate and Tradirtional options which by comparison present much higher quality for cost, simply because we have the time to offer our chapel and its facilities for a more relaxed service, with webcasting.

A note about Celebrants

. Our Celebrant supplies Christian or Humanist Services, as do many Celebrants. Using a Celebrant does not mean that you are limited to a Humanist Service. We always offer a service to suit your loved one and you - and where we do so with faith, we do so with personal faith.

We state this so that you know that should your Minister be unable to attend our Chapel for any reason, we do have someone who would help, and with faith.
