Informed Choices

Here to guide through this difficult time

When arranging a funeral, it is important to make informed choices and be made aware of all the available options. Our funeral directors in Blackpool are here to guide you at every step.

Our simple philosophy is to provide you with a service, in a manner in which we would want to be served

As funeral directors, our duty is to guide you through a difficult, often emotional time, we are here to advise and inform and marry your wishes together with any requests left by the recently departed, at a time when emotions may cloud your better judgement.

Traditional service

The traditional service is centred around the coffined deceased person, whether in Church, at a Chapel or at the graveside, the service leads up to the final act of committal and disposition of the earthly remains. Newcastle, York, Oakham, Bamburgh ways are all examples of our traditional service options.

Infants, Children and those in active service

Tragic circumstances such as the loss of a child*^ or that of an active service member** are difficult situations for many people to come to terms with. Here at D. Hollowell & Sons we try to relieve a small part of that burden by waiving our professional fees** as a gesture of goodwill to family and community alike.

*Infants & children are considered from non-viable status through 15 years.

^supplement may be added if funeral timings deviate from those suggested.

** Active service applies to military & emergency service personnel (fire, ambulance, police)
