What does a funeral director do?


The funeral director's role begins with meeting with families to understand their wishes and the preferences of how they would like to celebrate their loved one's life. This includes discussing how they want to celebrate the person's life, the location and type of service, and handling legal documentation for cremation or burial. They also assist with registering the passing with relevant authorities. After the initial meeting, the funeral director coordinates with various teams such as celebrants, designers, and caterers to organise the event. They guide families through choices like flowers and coffin selection, ensuring personalisation and support throughout the entire process.
