Funeral Arrangements

When faced with a death and a situation you may have not experienced previously it can be a daunting task to ensure the deceased gets the send off they deserve, our family are here to support and advise you throughout.

We will guide you through the detail, advise you of all the options and choices available and working with you to arrange a funeral that is personal to your family. For some a simple funeral is all that is required whilst others prefer a more elaborate service.

The person making the arrangements must have the authority of the family to do so and be able to make decisions and give instructions, as they will be responsible for arranging payment.

We can meet to discuss the arrangements at our funeral home, your home or a location of your choice, such as a solicitor’s office or friend’s home.

Decisions you will need to consider are:

  • Burial, Cremation or Repatriation
  • Coffin, casket and urn selection
  • Dressing of a loved one
  • Where your loved one should rest prior to the funeral
  • Where the funeral is to be held
  • Religious or secular service
  • Who is to conduct and speak at the funeral service
  • Whether to have floral tributes or donations to charity
  • Who to invite to the funeral
  • Who should be informed of the death
  • Newspaper Notices
  • What costs are appropriate
