As experienced funeral directors, we’re always extremely conscious of the vulnerable nature of many of our clients.

We visit people when they are in their most distressed state.

This could be to collect the body of a loved one or to make funeral arrangements after the person has been taken into our care.

For this reason, our team always carries ID cards, which contain unique staff and contact details.

Most of the time this isn’t needed but if you’re ever unsure, all you need to do is call our office on 01384 395048 to confirm.

Naturally, most people won’t remember our phone number off by heart, so if you need to verify details simply Google H. Porter & Sons and you will find all our contact information.

And because we’re available 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week there will always be someone on hand to provide verification.

Please also bear in mind that no member of our team will ever feel offended if you ask them to wait whilst you establish their identity. Please take as much time as you need.

We also find using ID cards is helpful when carrying out collections at hospitals, care homes, and hospices.

If you work in one of these services and someone you haven’t seen before visits on behalf of H. Porter & Sons, they will be able to provide identification that we can verify at any time of the day.

It’s all part of providing a high-quality service, delivered by a team in which vulnerable people can have complete trust.

If you have any queries about this, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Always happy to help.
