What To Consider

Making It Unique

Many bereaved families take great comfort from placing personal items such as photographs or letters in the coffin with their loved one. We place no restrictions on what may be placed in a coffin whilst your loved one is in our care. However, there are restrictions placed by crematoria, for example, metal or glass objects. Where appropriate, we will give advice. To view some of our popular personalised remembrances click the button below:

Coffin & Casket Range

We supply a wide range of coffins and caskets, from the simplest to the truly elaborate, suitable for burial or cremation. We recognise that for some people choosing a coffin may be distressing, but it would be inappropriate for us to make that decision for you. We are trained to deal sensitively with this part of arranging the funeral and are on hand to deal with any questions or queries that you may have, to help you make the right choice for you and your loved one.

Alternative Hearses

Increasingly more and more families are choosing to personalise a funeral through their choice of hearse. Unusual funeral hearses are setting the trend for recognising a person’s individuality, with 1 in 5 people now choosing a vehicle that reflected their loved one’s favourite hobby, pastime or their sense of humour. Just tell your Personal Funeral Adviser about your loved one’s personality and we’ll do our best to find the right vehicle for you or your loved one.

Writing A Eulogy

Writing and giving a eulogy is a way of saying farewell to someone who has died with helping to bring the person to life in the minds of the audience.

For the majority of us writing and giving a eulogy is something we have no experience of and therefore we find it difficult to know where to start.

In response to this and as part of our commitment to helping people arrange funerals which truly reflect the life of an individual, we've produced the guide entitled "Well Chosen Words - How to write a eulogy". with input from the Poet Laureate, Professor Andrew Motion, on the project, and he has expressed strong support for what we are doing.

Poet Laureate, "Eulogies are for everyone. They are a reminder that each of us leads a life of special interest and value and that each of us is unique, with our own special gifts."
