We work to many different standards, as do Funerals Directors and Stone Masons and we follow guidelines and best practise wherever possible.

The Charter for the Bereaved is produced by the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management (ICCM ). Administration and members of the public can be assured that an authority or company that has adopted the Charter is committed to providing excellent service designed to meet their needs.

Worcester City Council is a charter member.
