When it comes to organising a funeral we believe it should be in a peaceful place far from a busy high street in view of others and with excellent parking, bus and road accessibility our premises offers a dignified and welcoming atmosphere. Here at Secure Haven Funeral Directors Ltd we designed our funeral home to also include mortuary facilities which are clinically approved and built to the highest standards – thus ensuring that your loved one shall receive all of the dignity that they are due.
We believe that a funeral service should begin the moment that you step through our door. and we want you to feel comfortable and more importantly heard. From our own personal experiences we understand how difficult it is to speak with Funeral Directors at your time of loss, so therefore we have created a tranquil environment for you to feel comfortable when making those important decisions. With a kettle always readily brewed we shall always take time to chat with you over a cup of tea or coffee with a biscuit or slice of cake. The Fully accessible facilities and surroundings are designed to ensure our space is comfortable for everyone.
ALL INCLUSIVE ENVIRONMENT
Secure Haven Funeral Directors Ltd work closely with with families of all cultures to honour specific requests. These may range from visiting the Chapel of Rest to prepare their loved ones, obtaining translators or accommodating the back filling of the grave at the cemetery. We can also provide a full service to people with disability by providing a bespoke mobility vehicle which accommodates a wheelchair user and 3 other family members so that everyone can travel together when attending the funeral. The vehicle can also become part of the funeral cortege if preferred. Our personal experience of assisting people with Dementia and their relatives means that we have an on-going commitment to A Dementia Friend.
We strive to give you control of the funeral costings. We offer detailed bespoke packages which allows you to decide how much or little is required for the funeral and working together with Golden Charter means all of our bespoke packages can be created as a Pre-Paid Funeral Plan. We endevour to create a personal plan gives piece of mind that your funeral wishes are adhered to and financial costs settled. We understand that funerals can be a financial burden so in addition to a variety of lower cost packages we do also offer payment plan options. With funeral costs our primary concern and the ever increasing wish for charitable donations to be made in lieu of flowers we offer a unique silk floral tribute to be placed upon the coffin that reduces costs and offers the dignity your loved one deserves. Secure Haven has made the decision not to purchase our own large fleet of funeral vehicles instead we externally hire a team of professional carriage masters including a specialist fleet of Jaguar or Mercedes hearse and limousines. Alternative vehicles are available on request such as horse drawn hearse, motorcycle hearse, VW van or even a bus.
Although we pride ourselves on our arranging room and facilities, we do understand that many families may not wish or be able to attend our premises here at Broomfield. If this is the case then we are more than happy to organise a time to make all of the arrangements and wishes in the comfort of your own home or another suitable venue during or outside of office hours.
CHAPEL OF REST
Once your loved one is brought into our care you can be assured that they will remain with us here, unlike many larger and national companies we promise that your loved one will stay with us until the funeral. When you visit your loved one in our Chapel of Rest you can create the perfect environment with soft lighting, candles and music to say your final farewells.
We are the only UK based Funeral Director with their own private in-house urn storage facility. Once we have collected your loved one’s ashes they are stored in a private oak niche – where they remain safe until such time as decisions have been made. These niches can be visited (upon appointment) and can personalised with a letter or photograph until you are ready for the next step.
