Our Funeral Services

With our forward thinking approach, we are able to provide quality services which are focused on preserving the memory and life of your departed, whether you want an elegant ceremony or something more traditional at an affordable price.

Funeral Services

We are very happy to come and see you at home and you can come in and help dress the person who has died if you wish. If you would like to care for the person who has died at home, we will act as a consultant for you and do just as much as you want. If you want the person who has died to be looked after by a female, that’s fine.

What’s important?

Our team’s focus is on giving you a funeral which matches your beliefs and values.

We will work with people of all faiths, no matter their faith or lack thereof; For our Muslim commuinty we offer cotton shrouds which are approved by the Islamic authorities.

We can lead funeral services without any religious beliefs, or introduce you to a Humanist celebrant, who will help make sure the person is celebrating their life with meaning.


How we can help

We will guide you through the details, advising you of all the options and choices available and working with you to arrange a funeral that is personal to your family.

For some, a simple funeral is all that is required, whilst others prefer a more elaborate service. The person making the arrangements must have the authority of the family to do so and be able to make decisions and give instructions, as they will be responsible for arranging payment.

We can meet to discuss the arrangements at our funeral home, your home or a location of your choice, such as a solicitor’s office or friend’s home.

We will always be here to guide you…

As you plan the funeral for your loved one, its a unique opportunity to celebrate their life and we will be happy to provide helpful advice throughout. Our caring team will be available by phone or in-person at any time – we have a 24hr Emergency phone line if you need to discuss our funeral services or have concerns, we will always be happy to help.
