Making Funerals Special
We can give assistance with the compilation and insertion of death announcements and acknowledgments in local and national newspapers.
We can help you with the ordering of floral tributes if you wish and can also record the card messages for you.
Many people prefer charitable donations in lieu of flowers and we will acknowledge these for you at no additional cost.
We are able to print personalised orders of service with readings and hymns and the front cover can include an illustration bearing some significance to the deceased or a photograph.
It is becoming more and more popular for families to ask for recorded music to be played at a funeral instead of, or in addition to, more traditional hymns and organ music. Also instrumental soloists may be requested, especially pipers. Our staff will be able to give advice on all aspects of music for a service or ceremony and make the necessary arrangements.
It is sometimes difficult to understand what is meant by the term “Woodland” funerals. For some it may be the use or traditional and sustainable materials in the manufacture of the coffin, for others, it is the idea of a burial in a place that will return to woodland with no headstone to mark the spot. We have a range of biodegradable coffins, including cardboard, bamboo and wicker (willow) options, all of which are suitable; for burial or cremation.
