Did you know you can Change to another Funeral Director?

Did you know, you can choose your preferred funeral director even if your loved one has been taken into the care of another funeral director?

For instance, when a death occurs in a care home the manager must arrange for your loved one to be taken into the care of a local funeral director.  If this is not the funeral director of your choice you can arrange for your loved one to be transferred to your preferred funeral director as soon as possible.

If the death occurs at home you will need to arrange for your loved one to be taken into a funeral director’s care.  You can call any funeral director at that time of need understanding that when you have had time to decide you can make arrangements for your loved one to be transferred to your chosen funeral director.

If you have not chosen a funeral director then take time to do this ensuring you have chosen the correct one for you and your family to work with.  Once you have made your decision, arrangements can then be made to transfer your loved one.


It is really simple to change to a preferred funeral director.  Secure Haven can be your funeral director even if a local firm has already carried out the removal of your loved one.  Explain to the local firm that you have decided upon another funeral director; retrieve the Green Certificate (if applicable) and we will arrange the transfer of your loved one to our chapel of rest.  The local firm will charge a transfer fee which can be added to your funeral account with us.
