Services

Day & Night Attendance

We realise that a bereavement may occur at any time of the day or night. We therefore can be contacted at any time to arrange conveyance of the deceased to our Private Chapel of Rest.

Coffins & Caskets

We offer a wide range of traditional coffins, American caskets and alternative coffins such as Willow, Seagrass and designs that reflect someone’s hobbies or interests.

Disbursements

Disbursements are fees for example payable to the crematorium or cemetery, minister, and doctor’s etc, where appropriate these fees would be itemised on your written estimate of expenses.

Memorials

We can assist you with the choice of a new memorial or with an inscription and renovation of an existing memorial.

Repatriation

In the event of a death occurring away from home we can arrange or simply assist in the repatriation.

Hearse & Limousines

The hearse with chauffeur and sufficient bearers is essential. However limousines are charged for separately. This ensures that the family is not charged for something they may not need or want.

We can also provide advice on services such as:

  • Printed Order of Service
  • Floral Tributes
  • Donations
  • Newspaper Announcements
  • Options on Cremated Remains
  • Pre-paid Funeral Plans

We do not like to restrict our clients to select funeral packages as we feel that each funeral arrangement is individual and should reflect the character and beliefs of each client, we have however put together the Simple and Traditional Funeral Arrangement examples to assist you in deciding what is right for you. Please contact us to discuss your wishes in more detail. A full price list of our services is available on request.
