One of our roles as Funeral Directors is to advise you on the different types of funerals which you can organise:

We will help you decide what type of funeral is most suitable for your loved one.

Some things to consider:

  • Do you wish to have a ceremony? If so will the will the funeral be religious or non-religious?
  • Do you require burial or cremation?
  • Where will the funeral take place, at a church, a crematorium, a cemetery chapel, beside a grave or somewhere else?
  • Would you like a priest, minister or civil celebrant to be present?

BURIAL OR CREMATION

The choice between burial and cremation is a very personal one and may be influenced by many factors such as religion, the wishes of the deceased and or family tradition.

People are usually buried in a churchyard or a cemetery, you can choose between using an existing grave (if there is space within) or buying a new grave.

If you choose a cremation service, one of the first things to decide is where you would like to hold the service. 

Some people prefer to choose a funeral arrangement with little of no religious content.

This is an option for those, who for lots of reasons, prefer not to have a funeral service.
