If the death occurs over a weekend or if you have to wait for paperwork to be issued by the hospital or doctors, please inform us, as soon as you feel able, so we can help and advise you on the procedures to follow.
We will guide you through every step of arranging the funeral that you require for your loved one. This can take any form that you require and the following is a list of some of the items that will require your consideration:
- Is the service to be a burial or cremation?

- If the service is to be a burial, choice of churchyard, cemetery or Woodland burial?
- What is your preferred date and time for the service?
- Choice of Hymns and Music you would like?
