Services we offer:
There are many things to think about when arranging a funeral for a loved one, here are a few examples for you to think about.
It is customary to place an announcement in the local or national newspaper. This serves two useful objectives. One to make sure that anyone wishing to attend the service has all the information as to the day, time and place of the service and information regarding floral tributes and donations. And two to reduce the chance of an embarrassing encounter with an uninformed friend or neighbour.
If you would like to place an obituary notice or acknowledgment we will be pleased to assist you with the wording and placing of the notice on your behalf.
We are able to arrange printed personalised service sheets, books of remembrance, pew cards to record those people who have attended the service and other printing requirements on request.
Floral tributes are an important part of a funeral.
We are happy to recommend a local florist to you who will be pleased to help you choose from a wide variety of different styles, individual designs and seasonal flowers to suit your own personal taste.
Coffins and Caskets
We provide you with a wide choice of burial and cremation coffins, caskets and urns in our showroom at Spring Gardens.
We can also supply environmentally friendly coffins such as cardboard, wicker or bamboo.
All necessary staff will be provided as part of our service to you prior to the funeral.
On the day of the funeral sufficient bearers and attendants will be provided to assist with either cremation or burial depending on your choice of funeral .
Chapel of rest
The last time you saw your loved one may be a distressing memory, it can therefore ease the grief by seeing your loved one at peace and free from suffering. You can be assured that every possible care will be taken of your loved one whilst in our chapels where you are welcome to visit them and take as much time as you need to say your farewells. Your funeral director will discuss this with you at the time of making the arrangements.
