As independent funeral directors we are able to make arrangements for all different religions, non-religious ceremonies, press announcements, printing, catering, floral tributes, recording and forwarding donations, prepayment funerals and any other personal concerns or requirements you may have.
The funeral services we provide are cremations, non-religious funerals, unattended funerals, cemetery burials and woodland burials. We also have private chapels for a quiet, place to reflect and grieve.
When you call us to arrange a funeral service, we’ll need to know some preliminary details such as whether your loved one has died at home, in hospital or in a private nursing home. We will take care of your loved one at our chapel of rest.
Funeral arrangements may be discussed at any of our branches or we are always happy to visit you at your home. We believe each funeral is unique and should be a fitting tribute to the life of your loved one.
Considerations for the funeral arrangements will include whether to opt for cremation or burial, an appropriate date for the service, type of service (religious or non-religious), music, obituary notices for press announcements, floral tributes and transport to and from the church/burial site/crematorium.
It’s important to check if the deceased made a will and you should consult their solicitors to establish the deceased’s wishes regarding the funeral arrangements. The will shall also disclose the names of the executors or persons legally entitled to deal with the estate and any matters relating to taxation that may arise.
Our funeral directors will oversee the completion of the statutory cremation forms by the appropriate doctors and will contact the crematorium, church or cemetery on your behalf to arrange the funeral service.
Relatives and friends often wish to visit the deceased person in the chapel of rest to pay their last respects before the funeral.
