The Funeral Journey

The Stages of the Funeral Journey

The process of arranging a funeral can be a daunting and emotional one.  In order to help families find the information they need during this difficult time our Funeral Homes break up The Funeral Journey into 5 key stages.

The Walker Funeral Group has structured itself so that our Funeral Homes are equipped deliver quality support to families at each phase of their journey.

1
Planning Ahead

While no-one wants to think about their death, pre-planning your funeral gives you the peace of mind to know that when the time comes, your family will be guided with professional support, providing a much-needed sense of comfort.

2
Time Of Death

Few of us are prepared when a death occurs and we often need support and assistance both at the initial time of death and throughout the funeral planning process, as well as continued support as we come to terms with the loss.

3
The Funeral Arrangement

A funeral service is the customary way to recognise death and allows us to honour and show respect for the dead as well as to help those left behind begin the process of grief recovery.

4
The Funeral Service

A funeral ceremony helps to publicly acknowledge the reality of the death, and when shared with friends and family it encourages the expression of grief.

5
After The Funeral

Grief is a natural response to loss. It’s important to remember that grief and mourning is a process and not an event.
