A modern funeral is about choice.  A funeral can be a private, quiet farewell, a sense of ceremony and occasion, or even unattended.

Currently, influential TV and media advertising is pushing the ‘no funeral’ – where no-one attends.  But you have far more options than either a traditional style funeral or an unattended direct cremation.

What you may not know:

  • A hearse does not have to be used for transport
  • A cremation service does not have to be held at a crematorium 
  • Family can lead the service themselves

When your needs are simple,  we can organise a private farewell where just a handful of people attend. 

When your needs are for a sense of ceremony but with little fuss, we can keep things low key and just focused on the ceremony.

When your needs are for a sense of occasion, carefully planned traditions and personal touches  can capture the essence of who has died. 

Or, a funeral can be unattended – direct cremation.  Families often choose this when they wish for the ceremony to be separate from the actual cremation.

There is no right or wrong.  At your time of need, we are here to help you
