The funeral

The funeral

Arranging a funeral can be especially difficult, when a family member or loved one dies. We are here to help, assist and advise you to provide a unique tribute to their life.

The first decision to be made for any funeral service is whether it is a burial or a cremation, here are some things to consider when making this choice.

You will then need to decide where the service will be held. This may be at a church or place of worship, at a crematorium chapel, at the graveside or somewhere else. If the funeral service is to be held in church or at another venue, it can be followed by a short committal service at the crematorium or at the graveside.

These choices may already have been made by the deceased, either by discussion with family members or in their will.

The most common funeral formats are as follows:

A traditional funeral

A traditional funeral includes a funeral service followed by a short committal service at the crematorium or by the graveside. The deceased and close friends and family are taken to and from the ceremony in a funeral cortège and our ushers will be available to help move the coffin and generally offer support.

A Simple Funeral

A simpler funeral would involve a service at the crematorium with transport for the deceased and our ushers available to help move the coffin and generally offer support.

Direct to Crematorium

We also offer a direct to crematorium funeral which does not involve a service and has no attendees. We respectfully transport the deceased to the crematorium and will provide you with the ashes. 

Whatever you choose we will ensure arrangements are as stress free as possible, leaving you free to be with your family and friends.
