Arranging a Funeral 

Few people realise the extent of a funeral director's role. At Michael Crawford Funerals we understand that arranging a funeral service for someone is a very important occasion. It is a way to celebrate a life and to share and rejoice the life story of a loved one. When faced with having to arrange a funeral service, many people have limited experience in organising such an event. This is why our role is to fully support you and our duty begins when we are first called and only finishes when we know that the families wishes have been fully met. We take pride that our commitment to care and support grieving families in their time of need is paramount.
