Funeral directors have always been deeply valued and esteemed members of their communities, and are there to provide support and guidance for the grieving family. For example, they can provide information on how to arrange a pre-paid funeral plan and discuss ideas and options you may have for your own funeral, helping you to record your wishes for the future.

There have been many changes in the industry, as people request different things, but there are still those who prefer tradition. There’s nothing wrong with that. Tradition and rituals are comforting, and play an important part in the grieving process, and help to combat anxiety, fear, and pain.

However, more than personalisation, more than tradition, people want guidance. Losing a loved one is a difficult process for them. A funeral director is not only there to arrange the final services of the deceased, they serve as a steward of the living, guiding them through the array of choices and decisions. A funeral director provides insight, comfort, and compassion.

At Dils they’re very much a family business. Wilfred Dil founded the company in 1960 and they are now into the 3rd generation of family ownership.
