Funeral planning appointment

The first step to arranging a funeral is to get in touch with us to arrange a funeral planning appointment. This can take place in the comfort of your own home, or in our office.

When you meet with us, we will discuss every aspect of the funeral. At this stage, you can tailor our services to meet your needs and budget. There will be important decisions to make, such as whether to have a burial or cremation, choice of coffin and the style of the ceremony. Our staff are understanding and sensitive to your needs and will offer support throughout the entire process.

Let us take care of the arrangements

When the funeral arrangements have been agreed, we will proceed to take care of every aspect on your behalf, allowing you the space to grieve. You can rely on us to ensure that every detail is managed in a respectful, professional and dignified manner.
