Out Of Hour's Funerals

Crescent Funerals is committed to providing professional and compassionate funeral services to bereaved families. We work closely with the Mosque or Funeral Home of your choice to manage every aspect of the funeral process for your loved one.


We are also committed to building capacity within the city by supporting local Funeral Directors, Funeral Arrangers, and other stakeholders. For this purpose, we have dedicated this section of our website as a resource to assist them.


Leicester City Council has a provision for out of hour's burials that allow burials to take place outside normal working hours, including weekends and Bank Holidays. As of 1 October 2021, through a formal arrangement with Leicester City Council, the out of hour's burial administration service will be delivered exclusively by Crescent Funerals Ltd. The service will be provided meeting professional standards with closer collaborative working at grassroots and most importantly, a people-centered approach. We also aim to provide additional services that will further support communities.


The processes described in this section will help service users easily understand what is involved and what will be required to facilitate a burial out of normal working hours. Please download this simple guidance and flow chart to get an overview of the various out of hour's processes. The flow chart is easy to understand and provides a step-by-step guide that includes essential contact information. Should you require assistance on your unique situation at any point, or advice on anything related to death and bereavement, please feel free to contact us. We are always happy to help.


We hope you find our website, and this section in particular, helpful.
