The opportunity to see your loved one for one last time and say a final, intimate and personal farewell is a comforting experience. Many people wish to do this and others will not. It is entirely your choice whether you would like to visit the private chapel of rest.
Our private chapel of rest provides a calm and peaceful atmosphere. Because our chapel of rest is a private room, we encourage family and friends to personalise the chapel of rest with photographs, flowers and personal effects as appropriate.
The private chapel of rest provides the opportunity to visit your loved one in a dignified and peaceful and comfortable setting. This enables you to treasure this final memory of seeing your loved one as a positive memory, which can also provide closure. We will lay your loved one down either in a bed or a coffin. Many people prefer not to see their relative or friend in a coffin, therefore a comfortable bed can provide a less distressing option.
The chapel of rest is open for visitations during office hours by appointment only. Please ensure you notify us in advance of the time and date you wish to attend.
Our funeral home is easy to reach and is close to the centre of Newport. We have ample parking spaces available for visitors. Our facilities are tranquil and comfortable and we have private family rooms which provide the opportunity to grieve in privacy.
For more information about our private chapel of rest, please contact us. We will be happy to provide you with advice and informative information regarding the procedures involved. Albert E. Hicks Limited Funeral Directors will treat your loved one with the utmost respect. This provides peace of mind that your loved on is receiving the best care possible.
