Floral tributes can make a funeral more personal. The sending of flowers can be part of the healing process for those who have lost a loved one.
We can organise your flowers for you, either directly or through our network of personal florists. Our personal florists will even travel to your home to discuss your specific requirements.
We are pleased to recommend 'Flowers by Debbie' a local florist who can either discuss your needs with you in our branch or at your home at a time convenient to you.
A memorial in a cemetery or at home provides a lasting memory and can give comfort by providing a place for you to visit and remember your loved one.
We can provide a wide selection of stonemasonry, from the simplest of plaques to the most ornate and elaborate memorial. We can also organise additional inscription, renovation, polishing and cleaning of existing memorials.
Your choice of memorial does not need to be made when you arrange the funeral. Our arrangers are always available to assist you with your choice at the appropriate time.
If a death has occurred overseas, or a death has occurred in the UK and the deceased is to be repatriated, we can assist you with this. We realise that arranging a repatriation can be particularly traumatic, given that in addition to the giref of losing a loved one there is also the concern of having to arrange travel to another country with the associated complication of the necessary documentation and permits.
Our staff are fully familiar with these procedures and will guide you seamlessly through the process in order to ensure that the repatriation goes as smoothly as possible.
Funeral costs continue to increase annually and in our experience, taking those initial steps in planning for the future, not only eases the financial burden but it most certainly makes life a little easier for your family and loved ones when it matters most.
With guaranteed acceptance, protection against rising costs and variable payment options to suit your circumstances, no-one is excluded from planning for tomorrow. It really is the most thoughtful thing you could do for your family.
Our staff are available to provide you with the support and guidance you need in helping you to make those all-important first steps to building your plan, your choices, tailored to suit your wishes. Start planning today and don’t leave it to others.
Please note that we cannot guarantee the cost of disbursements as these are third party costs.
