Funeral Services

The planning of a funeral service can be a daunting task and we are here to help and assist you throughout all the arrangements and ensuring that your wishes are met as much as possible to ensure that your loved one’s final journey goes smoothly.

From the initial phone call to the end of the funeral service and beyond, you will have a personal named funeral arranger and he/she will work through all the arrangements with you and incorporate you own suggestions and ideas to create a bespoke service of celebration and thanksgiving for the life of your relative.

We are happy to make the arrangements in one of our warm and friendly branch offices or in the comfort of your own home and will make all the necessary arrangements that are required to plan the service and make it a lasting memory.

When making arrangements for a funeral, there are some things that will need your consideration:      

  • The registration of the death.
  • The wishes of the deceased, which may be contained in a will.
  • The decision as to whether the funeral will be a cremation or burial.
  • The day and time of the funeral service.
  • Whether limousines will be required.
  • The choice of a coffin.
  • The wording of the newspaper notice.
  • The choice of floral tributes.
  • Whether there is a request for donations.
  • Printing and planning of the orders of service.
  • Whether the family wish to spend time in our private chapel.
  • The charges involved with the funeral service

We can conduct funerals across Southern England and London, and in other areas, it is also possible for us to arrange the repatriation of the deceased to and from abroad if needed.

One of the main decisions that the next of kin and family need to make is whether the service is to be a cremation or a burial. Religious beliefs will also be needed to take into consideration. We can arrange cremation services and advise on the choice of the crematorium

When cremation is chosen, it is important to consider the decision over the final resting place of the ashes.

We are also able to arrange burial services. We will discuss the choices available with you and can offer a burial in a local cemetery, churchyard or woodland area. It is important to remember however, that depending on where you live, that not all burials may be permitted in churchyards due to limited space.
