Surrey Funeral Director

No Fuss Funerals to Ceremonial Funerals

Local Family Funeral Director in Surrey

The prospect of having to plan a funeral can be a daunting one. It is easy to feel pressured about what you ‘should’ do.

We want to reassure you that there is no right or wrong way to arrange a funeral. It’s simply about what feels right for you as a family.

It may be that just a simple funeral with family and close friends is all you are looking for – or you may have a large crowd attending with more ceremonial touches.

As independent funeral directors we help families across Surrey arrange a personalised send off for their family member, however small or large.

We help you to make informed choices to ensure that the service reflects a life lived – or the wishes that may have been left.

Whether you have some clear ideas on what you would like, or perhaps don’t even know where to start – we’re here to help.

White Rose consistently exceeded my expectations. They took the time to really get to know me and, more importantly, Christine. This enabled them to give me advice that really helped to make the funeral as perfect as I could have hoped.
