What to consider when arranging a funeral

There are many things to consider when arranging a funeral. Our experienced team can help guide you through the whole process. Every detail regarding the funeral ceremony, burial or cremation will be discussed. We will agree on a date for the ceremony and the type of funeral service will be agreed. Other things to consider will be discussed and they include:

  • If you want to use our private chapel of rest for family viewings
  • Choosing the coffin or casket
  • Deciding on the type of funeral, for example, burial, cremation or green funeral
  • Transport for the day, i.e, funeral cars, horse-drawn carriage
  • Choosing the funeral procession route
  • Deciding on music, flowers and service sheets

In addition, we will also explain our funeral charges. If the funeral costs are covered by a pre-paid funeral plan then unless you add extra services, no other costs will be involved.
