The task of arranging a funeral is an emotional and often distressing time. Our professional funeral directors will respectfully guide you through the whole process. We will advise you on all aspects associated with arranging a funeral and also take care of the arrangements, relieving you of any further stress and upset.
The initial process of arranging a funeral service starts with a consultation. The consultation can take place at our funeral home, or if you prefer, in the comfort of your own home.
Our fully trained and attentive funeral directors will explain every detail involved, offering you various options along the way. There will be important decisions to be made, such as choice of casket, style of service and burial or cremation.
Once the funeral service arrangements are agreed, we will then take care of every detail on your behalf. These include private viewings in our chapel of rest, through to the finer details on the day, such as funeral cars, flowers. In addition, we will liaise with the cemetery or crematorium for you.
Allowing us to manage the process will provide peace of mind that the funeral arrangements will be dealt with in a professional and respectful manner. Furthermore, knowing that arrangements are taken care of, will help prevent further distress at this upsetting time.
