Arranging A Funeral

In the course of a lifetime most people will only arrange two funerals.  From the moment of your first call we are here to give as much or as little help and practical guidance as you need.  In fact, many of the details can be taken over the telephone in order that a day and time for the service can be booked.  All payments on the day are taken care of by us and one invoice for the whole funeral is subsequently sent either to you or your solicitor.  We will discuss with you how many limousines are required, show you a choice of coffins and establish whether you wish to leave from a home address, our premises or meet at the cemetery or crematorium.

A full range of useful telephone numbers is available for local florists, printers for service sheets and venues for refreshments afterwards.   Please ask for details.

Arrangements for funerals can be made at our premises, call in at any time, or if you would prefer one of our experienced staff will call at your home at a convenient time to discuss your requirements.

Arrangements can be made by us for burial or cremation either in the UK or abroad.

Funerals can take place in either the chapel at the crematorium or cemetery, or we will book a church of your choice.

On your behalf, we will liaise with local clergy of any faith, or we can appoint a non-religious funeral officiant to take a personal funeral service of your choice.

Prepaid Funerals

Cremations and burials can be planned and paid for in advance.

Any special requests regarding, the place for service, music etc. are noted on the application. At the time of death, your next of kin can bring in the plan and all your wishes will be fully known.

The following website is for guidance only – please give us a call to discuss your requirements. If you require assistance filling in the form, no problem just give us call and we will assist you.
