Funeral Arrangements


Funeral Arrangements
Please contact us as soon as you are able.

Making funeral arrangements can often be a daunting experience and in order to make this less difficult please contact us as soon as you are able and we will endeavour to offer you guidance and advice throughout the whole process to enable a fitting farewell to your loved one.

Over many years we have built up an enormous wealth of local knowledge regarding all types of ceremony, from the very traditional to one of a more informal style, including religious and non-religious, church, crematorium, burial and green. Please bear in mind that if there is a change of heart, these arrangements can invariably be altered at fairly short notice, although it may be necessary to change days or times.

Often the deceased will have left the wishes for their funeral in their will or with a family member. However, more and more people are planning for the future. If you or a relative chooses to record their funeral wishes in advance, you could lodge your plans with us. This will make life easier when the time comes, as your family will be made fully aware of your wishes.

  • Services of a Funeral Director to supervise the funeral
