Regardless of circumstances, the second point of contact is a funeral home. At Rankins we are there with you from the start. When you phone Rankins and advise us of a death, we begin by transferring the deceased to our care. If you have pre-planned your funeral service then all your family needs to do is phone to advise us of the death and work out what day and time the service is to take place.
If the funeral service has not been pre-planned we set up a time to meet with you and your family, either at your home or at our offices, then we will guide and advise you through the necessary steps. At Rankins Funerals our professionally trained personnel are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As a locally owned funeral home, our philosophy is to be attuned to the community's needs. We will guide you through the arrangements and help you design a funeral to suite your religious, cultural or individual needs as simple or detailed as you would like.
Rankins believe an important aspect of arranging a funeral is taking the time to spend with families. The most important thing in our lives is family and by taking the time to talk to you and your family about your loved one, Rankins can help to create a meaningful way to say goodbye.
