Choosing the right funeral director in Shrewsbury: What to consider
21 Mar 2024

The idea of choosing a funeral director is something most of us give little thought to - until we lose someone close to us and need to make decisions about their funeral.

Experiencing bereavement is always difficult and the added responsibility of making funeral arrangements can increase an already heavy burden, but it is something that must be done. So just how do you find the right funeral director to meet your needs in Shrewsbury?

Vital experience

We will begin with experience. WRR Pugh & Son has more than 130 successful years serving the people of Shrewsbury during which time we have developed an enviable reputation within the industry of trust, support and service.

It is something we are immensely proud of and demonstrates a commitment to our community which is second to none. It means we have a wealth of favourable testimonials, reliable recommendations that are passed by word of mouth and, in many cases, repeat calls from families we have served and worked closely with, sometimes for several generations.

Your search for a funeral director needs to start with finding out if your loved one has taken out a pre-payment funeral plan or paid for their funeral in advance. Those details will have been made known to you or laid out in their will, making the ensuing process much easier to understand and carry out.

The next step

If no such plan has been made you will need to make your choice of funeral director in Shrewsbury. It needs to be someone:

  • Highly qualified and experienced
  • Compassionate and approachable
  • You will feel comfortable with, and who listens and responds to your needs
  • Who provides a favourable financial option
  • Who will care for your loved one in the way you wish
  • Who is committed to helping you honour, celebrate the life and pay tribute to the deceased in they way you and they would like

Our extensive experience in going the extra mile for funeral services in Shrewsbury means you always have the reassurance of knowing that everything will be carried out with the utmost respect to the deceased and in accordance with your wishes.
