Supporting Families During Their

Times of Bereavement

For Your Comfort and Convenience

Losing a loved one, whether it is sudden or expected, can be shocking and upsetting. It is not unusual for people to not know what to do when someone close to them passes away, but that is where we come in. One of the first things you should do is contact West & Sons Funerals and we will gently guide you through each stage of the process. Our caring and sensitive services start from the moment we first speak. Initially, we will need to know where your loved one has passed away as this will determine the next step.

Arranging a Funeral

The thought of arranging a funeral, whether you have done it before or not, can feel extremely overwhelming when you are still coming to terms with your loss. Staff at West & Sons Funerals are very sensitive, and we understand that many people feel devastated and vulnerable straight after losing someone.

Death at Home

If your loved one passes away at home, and it was expected, you need to call your GP who will come out to certify the death.
If the death occurs outside of the normal surgery hours, then contact the emergency number and an out-of-hours doctor will be notified.
If the death is unexpected then you must contact the police as well as your GP.
There could be a delay in receiving the medical certificate as a coroner may need to be consulted.

Death in a Nursing Home

If your loved one passes away in a nursing or care home, the staff will notify you. In most cases, they will also notify the GP who will need to complete a death certificate.
Get in touch with us so we can make the necessary arrangements to collect your loved ones and take them to our funeral home.

What Our Families Say

I would just like to say that both Giles and David went above and beyond what both me and my brother were expecting from a Funeral Directors. They provided sound suggestions for my fathers cremation and were incredibly helpful as well as thoughtful and were very fair on pricing. Completely professional from start to finish. Excellent service throughout. Faultless

West and Sons recently took care of my Auntie Sue’s funeral. It was perfect for Sue. A personal and lovely service. From day one I knew Sue would be looked after in their care.

Thank you for your correspondence and mail from the RSPCA about the donations made.
We would like to thank you for the professional, sympathetic and courteous way the arrangements for my mother-in-law's funeral were carried out. We were especially pleased with the recommendation of the Celebrant, Lee, who was the perfect match for the kind of service he wanted.
The feedback from the attendees was that it was the perfect laid-back, colorful celebratory goodbye jean had requested.
We would have no hesitation in recommending your company in the future and would be happy for our positive comments to be communicated.

I've found West & Sons to be excellent and caring, after many years of working with Funeral directors locally, I've found they go the extra mile and really care about the people and families whose service they provide. When the time comes, I'm giving them my business.

So many thanks for a job so well done on the 25th March. I and the boys could not fault anything. The service was so simple but it was beautiful. I couldn't have wished for it to be better. Many thanks again and may go bless you all.

I can’t thank David and his team enough.  I tell everyone to use West & Sons


I don’t know what we would have done without you.  Even though we had to self-isolate you still made it possible for us to give Roger a great send-off.
