Reasons to choose Secure Haven Independent Funeral Directors (instead of the Nationwide Companies)…

  • Local On-Site Mortuary – You prefer the deceased to be taken into the care of a local funeral director, with an on-site mortuary, as opposed to being held in a storage facility somewhere in the country.
  • Private Ambulance Transport – You prefer the deceased NOT to be transported by an unknown van driver, to a distant location, like national companies use.
  • Personal Touches & Requests – You may have a special request you wish to be considered or adhered to.

  • Experience & Support – You prefer the one-to-one professional support and assistance provided by a funeral director.
  • Grief Recovery – You would like help from our qualified Grief Recovery expert.
  • Dignity & Respect from Professionals – Assurance that a fully qualified funeral director is always present, guaranteeing the dignity of the deceased at all times.
  • Local Chapel of Rest – You may wish to visit the deceased in a chapel of rest.

Price Match Guarantee

People think this service is much more expensive than using a National Direct Cremation provider. This is why we provide a Guarantee that if you find a like-for-like service we will price-match any written quotation from another funeral director in Essex.

Burial Packages

A graveside funeral service can be held in a cemetery or churchyard with mourners gathered and officiated by a minister, civil celebrant or humanist (if requested).

The Exclusive Rights of Burial must be purchased for the plot if a memorial headstone is to be placed on the grave after the required six months for the ground to settle.

A single depth grave will also accommodate the burial of two sets of ashes at a later stage.

A funeral service can take place in a church, followed by a burial in the churchyard in a new or existing family grave. Fees are governed by the Church of England Parochial Fees. Other fees will include the organist, verger, heating and grave digger costs.

Where churchyards are closed, burials following a church service may still take place in local cemeteries owned by parish councils or within crematoria cemeteries owned by district councils or privately owned.

It’s worth noting, rules for memorials in churchyards are more restrictive than those in cemeteries. It is advisable to have this discussion with Secure Haven before making final decisions for burials.
