Natural Death Centre Recommended Funeral Director 2016-17

Dandelion Farewells is pleased to be included on this list of Recommended Funeral Directors. This register is a list of recommended companies who are all flexible, transparent and accommodating and who have pledged in writing to the criteria set out below. Many have been known to the NDC for years, and others, like us, have been recommended by families and assessed to be eligible for this title. Actually, these things come naturally to us and are many of the founding principles for our business.

As a Recommended Funeral Director Dandelion Farewells has all agreed t o the following criteria:

  • To be flexible with the public and provide the service they request.
  • To state clearly what their services entail, including a clear breakdown of costs for each part.
  • To provide a very basic disposal service if requested.
  • To provide information regarding all disposal options to all clients.
  • To assist families who only want a part service, and not to make this difficult by offering 'packages only'.
  • To inform customers that they can send feedback about the services provided to The Natural Death Centre.
  • To explain that embalming is optional - and also explain what embalming entails.
  • To inform families that they may like to help with some aspects such as washing and dressing the person who has died, or carrying the coffin.
  • To state clearly if they are a member of a larger 'group'.
  • To inform families whether the person who has died is being kept at another facility.
  • To provide families with options for other types of celebrant beyond simply a minister or a humanist.
  • To meet and make arrangements at the family home at no extra charge.
