Funeral Directors in Sutton Coldfield

When you lose someone you love, or are faced with the knowledge that you may lose them soon, it is a devestating shock and grief leaves us reeling.

At a time in your life, where you cannot even think straight, you are asked to make decisions.

Daniel Ross and Sarah Wolsey are brother and sister and are funeral directors in Sutton Coldfield. We are an independant family business who have experienced bereavement within our own family and we know, again through experience, that whatever the circumstances surrounding the death are, the loss is as unique as the person who has passed away.

We are at your service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and your contact will always be either Daniel or Sarah.

Our beautiful funeral home in Walmley is called Grace Mary House, in memory of a very special little girl, whose bravery and courage inspired and will forever inspire our dedication to our profession.

We would be honoured to be able to help you in your time of need.


Woodland Burial and Green Funerals

Should your choice be Woodland Burial, we are here to help you.

Daniel Ross Funerals of Walmley  is the only “green” funeral director in Sutton Coldfield and is Recommended by The National Centre as a “helpful” funeral director who places their families needs and wishes first and foremost.

Green Funerals (otherwise referred to as Eco friendly or Woodland Burial) are for those who wish to return to Mother Nature. Natural Woodland Burial Grounds provide an alternate to a traditional graveyard as headstones are replaced with the beauty of nature. The aim of  Woodland Burial Grounds is to develop areas of outstanding beauty, provide a home for a variety of wildlife and to create a special place for those, that wish to remember a loved one ,will want to visit, not from a sense of duty but for the pleasure and peace of mind that it provokes.

All of the coffins we use for our green funerals are made from highly renewable and sustainable materials that ensure they are enviromentallly friendly. They are then elegantly handmade or woven by skilled craftsmen in a range of designs, including traditional shape and curved end coffins and caskets.

A family may opt for various “aspects” of a green funeral  ie wicker coffin but with Cremation, or Woodland Burial but with a wooden coffin and feel this is adequate for them personally, other families may wish every detail of their loved one’s funeral to be enviromentally friendly.

Please contact us for further details and information on Natural Burial/Woodland Burial/Green funerals and also about our wide range of coffins and caskets available in various cardboard and eco friendly materials on 0121 313 0054.


Bereavement Education for Schools

Child Bereavement Education from Daniel Ross Funerals for local schools in Sutton Coldfield

Campaign to help Bereaved Schoolchildren in the West Midlands

BREAKING bad news to children is never easy, but now West Midlands schools have been given a helping hand to make sure staff are saying the “right words.”

Daniel Ross Funerals of  Walmley, Sutton Coldfield has taken its recently-launched Child Bereavement Support Campaign to the next level, by funding and making available new handbooks to support and guide people working in schools and other educational environments.

The user-friendly school handbook follows hot on the heels of a successful version for parents and carers, which was released in February (2010) by the Eachelhurst Road business.

Local schools have been told about the handbooks and complimentary copies have been made available. Posters have also been designed.

Daniel Ross Funerals co-owner Sarah Wolsey said the latest publication covers a wide range of issues. It also contains a wealth of advice from child bereavement experts.

One of the schools to receive the booklet is St Edmund Campion School in Erdington, Jan Fleming is the secondary schools Bereavement Co-Ordinator: “Over the last five years at St Edmund Campion School I have set up and managed a Bereavement Profile and supported all the pupils and families who have suffered a bereavement which has been well received by pupils and their parents. The booklets that I have just received from Daniel Ross Funerals , particularly “Remember Me” will be invaluable in helping me continue the support given to the families in our school community. They are directed at the specific needs of the child at what is a most difficult time for them, not only to support them but will be invaluable source of information for their families in helping their child cope with their loss.”

Topics covered include: telling children when a member of the school dies, informing staff when a member of the school dies; issues relating to loss for children in early years classes,loss issues for those with special needs  and how to handle the situation when a bereaved child or colleague returns to school. The handbook also covers faith and cultural beliefs and considerations and critical incident contingency planning

Posters were supplied for use at each school’s own discretion, in case staff decided they wanted to further publicise the handbooks for parents and carers.

“I have always personally believed there is a need for extra help and support for those caring for children following  bereavement,” said Sarah.

She said the response to the campaign had been “totally overwhelming”, firstly from parents and now from teachers and teaching assistants.

“It is so positive and encouraging for parents to know that the care and support given at home is being continued and followed through whilst the child is at school. It is wonderful to have everyone pulling in the same direction,”  added Sarah.

“Daniel Ross Funerals is a family-owned-and-managed business which is proud to have funded these books and made them freely available to our local community.  It’s all about the people.”

Copies of both guides – the teachers’ resource or parents’ handbook – along with the poster, are available from the business. Simply visit the website: www.danielrossfunerals.co.uk or call its 24-hour telephone helpline on: 0121 313 0054.

Similarly, balloon releasing is increasingly popular and has similar impact on people’s spirits.

We are happy to make such arrangements and obtain any permission required on your behalf.
