We are available here at Church Village Funeral Services 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, we understand death can occur at any time and we take pride in supporting you and your family from the very beginning.

Sudden Passing of a Loved One.
Church Village Funeral Services can be trusted as your funeral director in Pontypridd and other surrounding areas. Death can occur in many locations not just at home. Sudden and unexpected death is a tragedy but it can happen. In this case, the police will attend the scene and coordinate the removal of the loved one. The police will convey the loved one to the public mortuary. Once the coroner has performed the required post mortem assessments it is then your decision where the loved one is taken to in preparation to the funeral. Church Village Funeral Service can then be contacted to transport the loved one to the chapel of rest. We understand how to deal with children at this difficult time and providing a caring service for our clients is what we take pride in.
The passing of a Loved one in a Residential Home or Nursing Home
When a death occurs in a residential home or nursing home the procedure is similar to when a loved one passes at home. Firstly the on-call doctor must be called to come to the residential home to and certify the death. The family member/ senior in charge will then call Church Village Funeral Services to arrange the collection of the loved one from the location of passing. We will then dispatch one of our discrete vehicles to transport the loved one to our chapel of rest. We will support you through the entire Funeral process and we can provide advice on the collection of the medical certificate. We are one of the most trusted and loved Funeral directors in Pontypridd.
How to Plan a Funeral
Planning a funeral service is a uniquely challenging experience, as anyone who has suffered a bereavement will know. However it can also be uplifting and help with processing the grief, allowing you time to think about your loved one fondly, the things they loved and the things you loved about them and how all this can be incorporated into their memorial.
The first stage is to choose a funeral director. Working with a local funeral directors in Pontypridd is advised as they will know the area well and have close links with the crematorium, hospitals, cemeteries and the local council, making them able to handle much of the organisational details for you.

Whether you decide on a burial service or a cremation, your funeral director will be able to arrange this for you.
