Traditional Funeral Plans

We have a lot of experience in tailoring traditional funeral arrangements to reflect the values and character of the person who has died. We will work with you to design and arrange a traditional funeral that is personal and meaningful to your family and friends.

Making funeral arrangements can be a daunting prospect; working with us alongside will make it all a lot easier – even enjoyable at times! We have found that if the details and funeral arrangements are designed to reflect and honour the life of the person who has died, it has the makings of a ‘good’ funeral.

Traditional burial: Typically, a service at the church or cemetery chapel led by a minister, with a traditional coffin brought in a hearse, followed by burial in the churchyard or the local cemetery, with a funeral tea or other gathering afterwards.

Simple cremation: A service led by a minister in the crematorium chapel, with a traditional coffin brought in a hearse, followed by the cremation, and a gathering afterwards.

Testimonials from families

On behalf of my mother, and my wife, I sincerely thank you for all your kindness, thoughtfulness and compassion shown to us all before, during, and after Dad’s funeral. I was a deeply emotional time for us, and your personal assistance helped us enormously. The planning for Dad’s funeral was so trouble free, all thanks to you. We all had no doubts that everything would not run smoothly on the day with you at the helm, and as thought, it did. The layout and contents of Dad’s service sheet just added the final touch to making Dad’s funeral so memorable for us. Thanks again for all your support.

I am so glad to have had your kindly and helpful support over the past couple of years whilst I have been preparing for Mum’s death. My sister and I found your gentle, low-key, but professional presence during the closing of the coffin – and throughout the funeral – very reassuring, and we both thank you most sincerely for making the experience one of great calm and peace.

We were all extremely happy with your arrangements for Mum’s funeral – she left clear instructions for some of the main details and I believe we complied with them in a dignified and intimate way. I have not attended many funeral ceremonies in my life but I believe we all felt that we could not have done more to make it a more meaningful occasion and one in which we all could make a personal contribution. I think it can be too easy to be a superficial participant. I thank you again for your discrete participation.
