The Burial Funeral service
We help you to find the most fitting way to say farewell to your loved one. There is no right or wrong way to hold a burial funeral, it is about how to best reflect the person you know them to be.
It’s also about simple, beautiful ways to personalise a funeral that may bring comfort alongside the sadness.
We help to gently guide you as you work through your thoughts.
Minimise unnecessary costs
All elements to a burial funeral are transparently priced, you only choose what you want or need to create a personalised service. The burial plot will need to be purchased, we can guide you if you don’t already have a plot.
There are beautiful personal touches that need not cost, that may strike a personal note in ways that you will cherish and remember. We can help you to think ideas through.
Online announcement page to help planning
Letting family and friends know about the funeral, can be an added pressure when you don’t need it. We include an Online announcement page with details of the funeral ceremony, burial and reception (charity links can be added if applicable.)
You can then email or text a simple link to family and friends to inform them of the funeral details.
An online RSVP form notifies you who is planning to attend.
Burial Funeral Summary
At White Rose Modern Funerals we support and guide you through planning a funeral, giving you flexibility and choice.
You may already have ideas that you want help with. Or, you may feel too numb to have any ideas at all – that is not a problem.
Our approach is to give you a simplified starting point. We then help you to think about what matters most to your loved one, and you as a family – and help to guide you from there.
Our fresh approach to pricing will give you transparency– and help to minimise unnecessary costs.
Our knowledge and organisation skills will help you through what we know is an overwhelming and difficult time.
Nick and Jacqui are truly wonderful to work with, they really do care and do everything they can to support you through a difficult time. They kept in regular contact and were always at the end of the phone/email to help. They made my mums funeral such a special send off and I am so grateful I would highly recommend them. Louise A
