Funeral director Almere

In addition to professionalism, years of experience and sufficient expertise, a safe feeling is also an important aspect when choosing a funeral director. One does not work without the other.

If you have little to no experience with funeral directors in Almere, making the “right” decision can be quite a challenge. It can be hard to decide on which selection criteria you decide.

What you may expect from funeral directors in Almere differs greatly from funeral directors in other parts of the Netherlands. The different regions in the Netherlands all have their own traditions. In addition, cemeteries all have their own regulations and provisions.

If you are not yet familiar with funeral care in Almere, making the right choice can be quite a challenge for you.

If it turns out that the services offered do not meet your expectations and wishes, this can be very disappointing and frustrating.

Ab-ire funeral care Almere has been a trusted concept since 1998.

If desired, we can also organize your funeral or cremation outside Almere. You can always rely on our experience, expertise, and professional guidance.

Why should you choose Ab-ire as a funeral director in Almere?

A good intention and passion for this special profession alone is insufficient within the funeral care in Almere.

Before Martijn Huffnagel started Ab-ire in January 1998, he had already developed 12 years of experience. To avoid the dangers of tunnel vision and blindness in this beautiful profession, Martijn chose to work for three different funeral directors in different regions.

Communication and accessibility at Ab-ire funeral care Almere

We are available 24/7 to help you. For relatives who have just been confronted with a death, there is nothing more frustrating than calling your mortician, and:

He or she is hardly or not available.

You have to deal with an operator who has to put you on hold one or more times before you are connected to the right person.

You first have to go through a whole menu of options to eventually get the “right” person on the line.

You first have to listen to annoying music on hold for minutes before you actually get to speak to someone.

To prevent all this, Ab-ire funeral care Almere has consciously chosen not to use a call center. If you call Ab-ire funeral care Almere, you will always get to speak directly to Martijn Huffnagel.

NB: There are colleagues who offer quotations excluding the costs for grave rent and/or maintenance. They interpret these costs as burial costs and not as funeral costs. This might be correct, but in our opinion, this is somewhat misleading. This makes it seem like they can offer their services for much less than elsewhere. But these costs still need to be paid, if not through the funeral director concerned or through the cemetery of Almere Haven itself.

In addition to the above funeral costs, additional costs may also apply, such as the rent of the auditorium and/or reception room. This depends on your wishes. These spaces are rented for a fixed period of time, for example for 30 or 45 minutes. If this time is exceeded, the cemetery will charge extra costs.
