Arranging a funeral can feel daunting, particularly if is something you haven’t had to do before. Here at Shields of Donaghadee Funeral Directors we understand what a difficult time this is and it is our main aim to help and guide you.
Funerals are incredibly personal so everything will be built around your needs. Please do let us know if you have any special requests and we’ll do our best to help. We’ll listen to you and let you choose the level of support you would like, while guiding you through the practical and legal requirements.
We’re here for you, before, during and after the funeral, so please don’t hesitate to contact us at any time. Be that for general advice, help with documentation, liaising with the Coroner, celebrants or officiants, queries about the arrangements including family gatherings and flowers, or just for some support and a chat.
