Our Services

We believe in providing a funeral service that is fitting to your needs and expresses something of you and to do things your way.

Our purpose is to assist families to create a personal service because saying goodbye to your loved one is one of the most personal and emotional experiences.

A majority of funeral services are traditional services but over the past few years other influences have meant that things are changing and we are able to reflect the wishes of the families and their needs.

We supply products and advice on all aspects when organising a funeral. These services include:

Caskets

Choosing a casket can be a difficult thing to do. Today, there are many options available when considering a casket for your loved one, and we have a wide selection of caskets available for you to choose from.

Urns & Keepsakes

An alternative option to scattering or interring ashes is to place them in an Urn. Urns allow you to keep the ashes at home while the family decides whether to scatter, Bury or keep them indefinitely. We have a wide selection of Urns & Keepsakes available for you to choose from.

Headstones & Memorials

We specialize in all types of memorial work, from unique, specially carved memorials through to your more traditional headstones, cremation and burial plaques. Visit our Headstones & Memorials page to help you make some of the decisions you'll need to make to choose a memorial for your loved one.

Flowers

Flowers are often the most important part of the funeral service. We can arrange the flowers for the funeral on your behalf with a local florist of your choice. Please visit our Flowers page to see some of the flower sprays we have organised in the past.

Financial Arrangements & Assistance

Part of our work involves ensuring that the costs associated with the funeral fall within the budget of the family. There are two common grants available to families find out more about them on our Financial Arrangements & Assistance page.

Embalming and Viewing

We will take care of the preparation of your loved one at all times and they are handled with dignity and care. Find out more about how we do this in the Embalming & Viewing page

Catering Service

Following a service held in Our Chapel we can take care of all your catering needs.

Annual Rememberance Service

Every year for the past 16 years we have held an annual candle lighting service before Christmas for those who have been bereaved during the year to remember their loved one. Find out more about our Rememberance Service here.

Repatriation

Repatriation is when a loved one needs to be moved to another town or country for burial or cremation. Find out more about Repatriation on our page.
