Our in-house team can design and produce order of service and hymn sheets. These lasting mementos are designed for each family and can be personalised as you would like. We can also design a more detailed order of service upon request.

We can also arrange for music to be played at your chosen service rooms, church, crematorium or cemetery. Your Funeral Director will discuss your musical options and choices when arranging the funeral.

Funeral arrangements reflect the varied nature of life. A tribute can be made with a sea of flowers, or a single rose, both as poignant and each unique to the individual.

We work with local florists to provide the very best seasonal blooms. We understand that for some people, flowers are an important part of life and signify key events and occasions or have religious or cultural significance. We offer a truly personal service and will always try our best to source your specific requirements.

Your funeral director will compose with you a fitting death intimation for your local newspaper(s), and after the funeral can do similar with an acknowledgement should you wish this.

You may wish, perhaps in lieu of flowers, to have donations to a charity or charities on behalf of your loved one. Your Funeral Director will discuss this and can include this request in the newspaper intimation and will ensure that the amount donated is counted and sent to your nominated charity/charities, although other options are available that your Funeral Director will discuss with you.
