Preparing to say the final goodbye

As funeral directors, our primary role is to work with you as a family as you prepare to say the final goodbye to your loved one.

This involves:

  • Respecting the wishes of you and the deceased as well as any religious or cultural requirements.
  • Providing you with the information you require to decide what type of funeral you would like for your loved one.
  • Caring for the remains of your loved one in a dignified and respectful manner.
  • Enabling you, your family and your friends to view your loved one’s remains as and when you would like.
  • Making the funeral and committal arrangements on your behalf which includes obtaining official certificates and permits as required.
  • Making any other arrangements you would like us to make such as placing death notices, organising refreshments or a meal for family and friends after the funeral, accepting and handing over charitable donations, memorial cards, headstones or seeking permission to scatter ashes at a particular place.
  • Providing you with an itemised list of costs and seeking your approval for additional costs in advance of them being incurred.

We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days of the year. We do not use an answering service so your call will always be answered personally by one of our funeral directors, even if you call us in the middle of the night or at the weekend.

Whether the death of a loved one is anticipated or unexpected, there are a number of things which must be done following a death in Ireland.

What to do when someone dies

Immediately following the death, you should notify the next of kin, the deceased’s family doctor (GP) and the Registrar of Births, Marriages and Deaths. You should also notify a funeral director, who will help you with the funeral arrangements and guide you through the decisions which need to be made.

Religious and Civil Funerals

In Ireland, the majority of families arrange a funeral ceremony or service to mark the life of a loved one. This could be a religious ceremony held in a church or other place of worship, or it could be a civil ceremony held in Massey Bros.’ own venues or another location of your choice.

The committal can take the form of burial or cremation. This decision can be influenced by a range of factors including the wishes of the person who has died, family tradition or religious observance. The committal may take place as part of a funeral ceremony or separately to it, either before or afterwards.

Massey Bros. have experience of arranging funerals across all religions and cultures including Humanist and civil funerals. We are also the only funeral directors to cater for those who have made Ireland their home, but who would like their remains to be repatriated to the place they called home on their passing by offering the country’s first and only pre-paid international repatriation plan.
