Traditional Funerals

From: £1495

Traditional funerals follow a set structure, comprising viewings, the funeral service, a burial or cremation and then a wake. 


The deceased’s family and friends can visit their loved one as they lie at peace in the funeral home. 


The service itself will take place at a venue of your choosing, or as laid out in the will of the deceased. The service can take place at a place of worship, a crematorium or, in the case of woodland burials, at a licensed burial site.

Burial or cremation

Burials can take place at a municipal cemetery, a churchyard, or on your own land – use of a cemetery and land are subject to availability and conditions, respectively. 

Cremations take place at crematoriums – we’ll help you find the most conveniently located one. 


After the service and the burial or cremation, the family and friends of the deceased can gather in a less formal setting to pay their respects. Wakes can take place at local pubs, restaurants, function rooms or at somebody’s home. Haseldine can assist with location hire and sourcing catering, if necessary.

FAQs & Advice

Arranging a funeral can be complex and daunting, whether it’s for a loved one or for yourself. We’ve compiled a list of our most frequently asked questions here:

When a person dies, it is naturally a very upsetting and emotional time. Unfortunately, during this time important decisions need to be made regarding the funeral arrangements. From the first call to us, we will take the burden of legalities and formalities away giving you the time to concentrate on the important and personal choices.
If the death is expected and happens at home a doctor or medical professional must formally confirm this before we are able to take the person into our care. If the person’s doctor’s surgery is open, contact them asking for a doctor to attend. If the surgery is closed phone 111 where you will be transferred to your local out of hours service. Once the death has been confirmed, we can come when you are ready. If the death occurs at a care or nursing home the staff will take care of this for you.
If the death is sudden or unexpected, the coroner may become involved - this is a formality and nothing to worry about. The police will usually attend on their behalf, ask relevant questions, ensure that everything is in order and complete all of the necessary documentation. Once the death has been confirmed, the police will arrange for the person who has died to be taken to the nearest main hospital where investigations into the cause of death will be carried out. When you feel ready, you can contact us. We will then liaise with the coroner and hospital and bring the person into our care when given clearance. If you feel ready, funeral arrangements may be made before this happens.
