The Choice is Yours We are Carrie and Fran. We set up A Natural Undertaking because we believe that choice and the power to take greater control are important when saying our final farewells. We’re all unique and it should be possible for our funerals to reflect our individual qualities. Funerals don’t have to be conventional or Victorian, but can be arranged in ways that feel natural and right. Whether, simple, modern, traditional or green, we can help you choose the right farewell for you, and we can do as much or as little as you need us to. We regularly help people to arrange natural burials around Birmingham, not only do these work out to be cheaper than a traditional cemetery burial but can also be a more beautiful way of saying goodbye. Do contact us to find out more. We're committed to providing transparent pricing; you can see our prices listed on our website and we have signed, and fully support, the Fair Funerals Pledge. We provide the option of a simple funeral service which includes the use of our car; a white Chrysler Voyager, and a simple coffin in our fee, as well as completing and managing paperwork, collecting the person who has died during working hours, looking after their body and spending as much time talking with you as you need. Where you have more bespoke requirements we start with our basic fee and then you can add your personal choices such as type of car, coffin or additional items as required. We also offer a direct cremation service for those who do not wish to have an attended funeral. We won Modern Funeral Director of the Year 2016 at the Good Funeral Awards, nominated by the families we have helped. We are members of SAIF- The Society for Allied and Independent Funeral Directors and abide by their Code of Practice. In addition we're a Natural Death Centre Recommended company, members of the Good Funeral Guild, and a member of the Association of Green Funeral Directors.
“Excellent service which fully reflected my wife's wishes”
“A Kings Heath based partnership the ladies were incredible and sensitive to our needs. Fran was meticulous and attentive throughout discussions with the greatest of empathy displayed. I would have no hesitation in recommending them and will have included them in my will arrangements.”
