The death of a loved one can be devastating for families – a fact that can sometimes put complex relationships under great strain.

Planning a funeral, and even the service itself, can therefore lead to conflict that must be managed with great care.

A good funeral director can help to limit such additional stress to ensure a painful day passes as peacefully as possible.

They should be able to offer guidance, make suggestions and help to manage any potential issues before they arise.

Often by careful and considerate handling of the arrangements, volatile issues can be diffused – at least for a while!
