Arranging The Funeral

There are many things to consider when arranging the funeral. Some you may have already discussed with your family and some you may not have even thought of. One of the first things you need to think about is whether you wish to have your loved one buried or cremated. Sometimes this isn’t an easy decision and may be influenced by the deceased’s religion and their own wishes and values.

We will help and guide you through all of the stages of arranging the funeral, but below are some things you may wish to consider.

  • Where  would you like the service to be held?
  • Would you like flowers or donations?
  • Do you require an obituary notice placed in the local or national papers?
  • Would you like limousines to follow the hearse?
  • Would you like to go a specific route to the service location?
  • Would you require a printed Order of Service? Would you like a photo included?

Your loved one may have left specific requests for their funeral and as part of that may have requested a particular coffin or casket. We offer a wide range suitable for burial, cremation and repatriation. To view our range of coffins and caskets, please click here.

We are able to draw on a wide range of resources to make the funeral service as individual and personal as your loved one.

We will pay all disbursements and incidental expenses incurred on your behalf and a detailed account will be sent out to you 10-14 days after the funeral service. Payment of the account may be made by cash, cheque, credit or debit card. We reserve the right to ask for disbursements and payment for flowers in advance of the funeral service.
