It was our experience as mourners that led to us becoming funeral directors.
Planning a funeral should not feel like a tick box of choices. In particular if those choices do not fit with the memories of your loved one or how you wish to say goodbye.
A husband and wife team
We are a friendly, down to earth, husband and wife team. Between us we ensure you have continuity and familiarity at your time of need.
We are extremely well organised and know the questions to ask to help you work out the style of funeral you wish to plan. We have the knowledge and contacts you may need.
Simplicity and personalisation
You can personalise and simplify a funeral in ways that you may not be aware of. We help you to explore ideas. For example:
– The crematorium need not be the main focus of a funeral – you are under no obligation to hold a service there.
– The viewing of the body and hearse procession – may not be necessary when you have the time to explore what mattered most to your loved one and to you as a family, we are all different
– You can personalise a coffin in the most unique way
There are many beautiful, simple touches to how you can say goodbye.
Not all funeral costs are necessary
To spend wisely does not cheapen a funeral. Whether you have many people to consider, or just a handful of nearest and dearest to think about.
It is how you say goodbye, in your own unique way that matters.
This is what we help you with.
Understanding family dynamics
Family life will often balance the emotions of love and conflict at the best of times. But it is the death of a loved one that is a unique passage of time.
Loss and difficulties are faced and people are brought together.
We help you to navigate through each decision to plan the right funeral. Talk to us, at your time of need. We will listen and can help guide you.
Eco-friendly green funerals
We can help families achieve a greener, more natural funeral. This may be simply minimising the environmental impact by picking a coffin made from sustainably sourced materials – or choosing a natural burial funeral where you can have an unhurried, relaxed service in the serene surroundings of a woodland or nature reserve.
Where flowers are used for a funeral service, we encourage the re-use of the flowers by bringing the flower display to the funeral reception and making it easy for friends and family to take a posy of flowers home with them. We also make it easy for families to request donations in lieu of flowers by creating an online funeral notice page with a charity donation link.
