Whatever your beliefs or circumstances, at Nicholas J Maggs Funeral Services, our goal is to provide comprehensive funeral arrangements to all. From funeral flowers to respectful announcements, we take care of everything. Our caring and compassionate team works hard to serve those in Radstock, Somerset, and we’re more than happy to share our years of experience with you and your loved ones.
Our professional company offers lots of funeral arrangement options. Everything is done at your pace, and we always take your requirements into account. Typically coffins are transported to a church or chapel on the night before the service, but this can be changed to just an hour before the service if you prefer. There are also various transport options, including a hearse from the family home and limousines that follow. If seeing the hearse would be too upsetting, we’re able to make alternative arrangements.
Once the service has been completed, the deceased may be taken to a churchyard, cemetery, or crematorium of your choice. If your loved one chooses to be cremated, there are lots of options for where they’re laid to rest. They may be placed in a crematorium garden, scatter them privately, or take them to a different churchyard or cemetery.
We know that when someone close to you dies, it’s an emotional time. However, we’re with you every step of the way, and this journey starts with a telephone call. Once a death occurs, a family member needs to notify us via telephone to instruct us of their wishes. If the death occurs at home, in a community hospital, hospice, or nursing home, it must be pronounced before we bring them into our care. If the death is sudden or unexpected, the doctor should report it to a coroner. This may result in a post-mortem examination and a possible inquest. Should this happen, we are here to advise you at every stage.
At our funeral home we have full mortuary facilities, including a chapel of rest. A separate restroom is also available for those with non-religious beliefs. Whether you’d prefer to visit us or have us come to your home, we strive to make funeral arrangements as comfortable and stress-free as possible. Tailored solutions are available, so please call us to discuss your requirements.
We have a selection of coffins and ashes caskets, and we arrange and advise on the following services:
While some families may want their flowers to remain at the crematorium, others choose to collect and return them to a cemetery, churchyard, or a specific location. We always respect your wishes, and are happy to discuss your requirements.
