Choose the type of funeral
The first step for arranging a funeral involves meeting with our funeral directors. We will organise a time to meet with you, either at your home or at our funeral home. Alternatively, we can discuss arrangements over the telephone. The arranger will talk through all the different options available to you and answer any questions you may have. Firstly we’ll discuss the location of the funeral and what type of funeral you would like.
Depending on the location of the burial taking place, there will be different factors to take into consideration. Whether you already have a family burial plot in a cemetery to re-open or you would like to purchase a new one, we can assist you throughout this process and speak to the authority on your behalf. Please note, if there is a current headstone connected to a family plot, this may need to be removed temporarily for the re-open to take place.
Each crematorium will vary, with regards to their own rules and procedures. They will also differ on how many mourners their chapels will hold. Some crematoria have outside speakers or screens for larger attended funerals. Recorded music can be played which we would source for you. A webcast of the service can also be provided for those family and friends who cannot attend the funeral.
