Arranging a Funeral
Once contact is made with Mallon Brothers you can either call to one of our offices or if its more convenient a funeral director can call to your family home to make arrangements. We will guide you through every step of arranging the funeral, helping to organise and give your loved one the funeral they deserve.
The decisions that you are presented with, when arranging a funeral include:
Is it going to be a burial or cremation
Do you want a wake in the house, or to use the funeral home
Which church the funeral will take place in
What type of coffin
Is the deceased to be dressed in their own clothes or a robe provided by ourselves
Do you want a removal to the church the night before
What newspapers do you want the funeral notice to be published in
Do you want flowers
Do you require a limousine (Holds 6 people)
Mallon Brothers will liaise on your behalf with the cemeteries, crematorium, newspapers, clergy, florists and advise you about the registration of the death. They will also, after the service, help with Funeral Payments Forms from the Social Fund and point you in the right direction for bereavement counselling if required.
