Planning a Funeral
We provide a range of personalised services:
- Choice of coffins
- Fleet of air-conditioned vehicles (hearses and limousines)
- Horse-drawn hearse
- Chapel of Rest available for families and friends to visit by appointment
- Press Announcements and Notices
- Appointments arranged and advice given for Registration of Death
- Help and advice with applications for financial assistance, if applicable
Remember, our caring and experienced staff are available to offer confidential advice.
Sensitive care and preparation of the deceased is a priority and the services of nurses, hair and beauty technicians and embalmers are available, if required.
You may have a specific type of flower or colour in mind, or wish to have a bespoke design, coffin spray, hand-tied bouquet or wreath. We can assist you with your choice and place your order with specialist florists.
We are able to offer advice on all aspects of music. In addition to traditional hymns it is often possible to have recorded music played at the service. You may choose to have an instrumental accompaniment, or choir or perhaps a piper.
Service Sheets – In-House Printing
We will be happy to discuss your individual requirements. As an added personal touch, you may choose to include a photograph of your loved one or an image of something of significance to them. As well as providing a keepsake, you are able to send a service sheet to those who are unable to attend the funeral.
Arrangements can be made with local caterers, hotels, restaurants or venues dependent upon your personal requirements.
In Memoriam Charitable Donations
We will collect and administer donations for the charity of your choice.
Books of Remembrance
These are available in addition to Attendance Cards which are signed at the funeral service. Memorial Books can be made available for mourners to write their own personal messages.
Pre-Paid Funeral Plans
A Pre-paid Funeral Plan not only gives you the opportunity to arrange your funeral in accordance with your own wishes but also offers peace of mind to your family when decisions at the time of a death can sometimes be both emotionally and financially difficult.
Interment of Cremated Remains (the Ashes)
We can offer guidance and assistance and arrange their final resting place.
Advice can be given on all forms of memorials and tablets to suit your requirements.
Both nationally and internationally, repatriations can be arranged using our trained staff and discreet vehicles.
Our Commitment to you
Above all, we provide a caring, dignified and quality service in an informal and relaxed atmosphere.
