Coffin Bearers

If you are planning and arranging a funeral, you will need to decide who will be carrying the coffin during the funeral service.

Carrying the coffin can be shared between the friends or relatives of the deceased, however, Bennetts will be able to provide experienced bearers to carry your loved ones coffin. We will discuss this with you when making the funeral arrangements.

Under the guidance of our insurers we would actively dissuade untrained bearers from carrying coffins. However, should a request be made to bear the coffin, then a training session will be required. We would like to stress that our bearers are extremely experienced and trained for their work; therefore a professional team of bearers is preferred.

If you would like further advice on carrying the coffin, please dont hesitate to call Bennetts Funeral Directors of Essex on 01277 210104.

Let us call you back at a convenient time to discuss your Funeral and Undertaker Service needs.
