Following the funeral, some families have decided to inter their loved ones ashes in a family grave, or a special ashes plot at either Darwen or Pleasington cemeteries. Purchasing an ashes plot is simple, and once purchased, may be used for the interment of up to SIX ashes caskets.
Being a private plot, the family are entitled to erect a headstone or memorial, commemorating those interred.
Your Funeral Director will ask you at the time of making the arrangements, what your intentions are regarding the ashes after the funeral, i.e. to be scattered or buried in an ash plot.
There are other things that ought to be considered, such as:
Cancellation of, utility services, gas, electric, phones, etc.
Closing bank and building society accounts,
Contacting insurance companies etc.
We can also offer the family bereavement counselling, or put you in contact with services who offer this type of assistance.
