The funeral

We understand that the funeral is a very individual goodbye to a loved one. As a local and independent funeral director we can help you arrange a meaningful and appropriate service for your loved one.

You may find that the funeral choices have already have been made by the deceased, either by discussion with family members or with instructions left in their will or a funeral plan.

The first choice to be made for any funeral is whether there will be a burial or a cremation. Here are some things to consider when making this choice.

The most common funeral formats are as follows:

A traditional funeral

A traditional funeral could include a funeral service followed by a short committal service either at the same or a different venue, typically including locations such as a church, the crematorium or a cemetery. If required, the deceased and close family and friends could be taken to and from the ceremony in a funeral cortège involving hearse, limousines and private cars.

A Simple Funeral

A simpler funeral would involve a service at the crematorium with transport for the deceased in our hearse.

Direct Cremation

We also offer a Direct Crematorium funeral which does not involve an attended funeral. We respectfully transport the deceased to the crematorium and will provide you with the ashes.

Our aim is to fit in with your individual requirements and often, more bespoke wishes are expressed. If you are unsure, please ask.

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