Our funeral services
Your funeral director will help you to plan a funeral that reflects your loved one’s life and the way you would like to celebrate it. There are many kinds of funeral, and families often like to create a ceremony that is personal and meaningful to them. We offer a wide range of services, and many families also bring their own ideas to planning the funeral. Our comprehensive service brochure shows the services we offer.
Our professional services
We will take care of all the arrangements needed for a funeral. We will help you register the death, and make sure that all the documentation you need is completed and delivered to the right people. We will book the crematorium or cemetery, and the celebrant. We will take care of the deceased person’s body and prepare it for the funeral. Our staff will be ready to help you when you visit the chapel of rest or visiting room. We will be there with you from the moment you contact us to the day of the funeral.
Vehicles and staff
For the journey to the funeral we provide a modern motor hearse, and liveried staff who will attend throughout the funeral. We also offer horse-drawn and motorcycle hearses. You can travel to and from the service and cemetery or crematorium in a modern limousine from our fleet.
Families are often surprised by the range of coffins from which they can choose, from traditional wooden coffins to picture coffins, and from wicker, wool and cardboard coffins to American-style caskets.
Choosing flowers for a funeral is a way to show respect and offer comfort, and we offer a complete choice from traditional wreaths, posies and coffin sprays to unique floral tributes that depict an important aspect of your loved one’s life.
Ash caskets and urns
You don’t need to decide what to do with the ashes of your loved one immediately, as we will collect and keep them for you for three months. You can then decide whether to scatter the ashes or place them in an urn or casket.
If you would like a lasting memorial of your loved one, it’s important to take your time when thinking about it. We offer a wide range of memorials and can help you choose one that suits you, and meets your local cemetery or churchyard’s regulations.
