Colin Ward Funeral Services Ltd | Independent Funeral Directors. You may be reading this because you’ve just lost a loved one and are naturally wondering where to turn for help. That is why we are here: to give you the advice and guidance you need on every aspect of the organisation of a funeral, from the initial contact to the day of the funeral and often beyond. Our family wants to be there for your family. Our services to you start when you contact us, and extend often way beyond the day of the funeral. On initial contact we will ask for preliminary details. Wherever the death has occurred, we will arrange for your loved one to be conveyed to our private chapel of rest. We would then ask, at a time and place to suit the Family, for the funeral director to call and arrange the funeral. Please see this as the start of the support and advice you can expect from Colin Ward Funeral Services Ltd. This is our commitment to you.
