Care and Respect

Funerals of your choice

Whilst funerals are usually sad occasions, meaningful funerals can assist people to cope with their loss. Such funerals can be sources of strength, hope and peace.
Funeral directors have the facilities and expertise to offer you a full range of options. They will discuss your preferences and assist you to plan an appropriate funeral service.

Decisions to make will include

  • When and where you would like the funeral to be held.
  • The type of service you desire.
  • If burial or cremation will follow the service (for many people this decision may reflect religious or ethic attitudes and family traditions).
  • Which coffin or casket and clothing you want for the deceased.
  • Details about the viewing of the deceased.
  • Who you would like to be involved.
  • What floral arrangements and motor vehicles would be appropriate and any other relevant matters.

Care and Respect

Benefits of Planning

Emotional Benefits:

If your wishes are unknown when you die, they will be faced with making difficult decisions at a trying time. Will they know if you wish to be buried or cremated?

Financial Benefits:

Planning ahead enables you to make financial arrangements to cover your funeral costs. Even if you are leaving behind sufficient money.

Family Benefits:

Taking care of your funeral arrangements is a thoughtful and caring thing to do for your family. It is comforting to know that you have done all you can do to ease their burden.
