Something Special


Sometimes the perfect addition to a funeral costs little or nothing at all and can make all the difference:-
 

  • The hearse driving by the family home en route to the service
  • A guard of honour formed by family and friends along the church or chapel exit drive
  • Releasing doves or butterflies at the graveside
  • Making rose petals available to sprinkle into the grave
  • Sprigs of rosemary in a basket for people to take for remembrance
  • Photo albums at the wake on a table with memorabilia items

 

Every burial is different.
From the charm of an
outdoor farewell
to the majesty of a full
cathederal service with
cortage to the cemetery.
In all instances our
expertise in burials
is at your service.
