We’re With You Every Step of The Way
“Death leaves a heartache no-one can heal.
Love leaves a memory no-one can steal”
Our ‘Living Wishes’ service means that you are able to pre plan your own service, reducing the pain and stress on your family.
Often, it is difficult to know where to start when planning a funeral service. We will support you throughout the ceremony-planning process, suggesting readings, poetry and music.
Only when you are completely happy with the script is it used.
Burial & Cremation
We offer personalised burials and if required scattering of ashes, in a location of your choosing.
We work with your chosen Funeral Director to ensure your loved one has a dignified ceremony.
We understand after any loss this is a difficult and emotional time for you and your family. It is our responsibility to ensure that the ceremony truly reflects your wishes, and provides a fitting and apt farewell to your loved one.
We will listen to your wishes and work together with you to write a meaningful and personalised tribute. We can suggest choices of readings and music to capture who your loved one really was, and what he meant to you.
We provide traditional as well as more celebratory funeral services, in keeping with the person being honoured.
We provide a ‘bridge’ between fully religious and non religious funerals. For example, a family may not wish for the service to have any strong religious content, but accept that other mourners may find comfort in religion, so we could include a reference to the person’s views on life after death, or a particular reading or peice of music.
Eco/ natural burials
Natural or woodland funerals are becoming more popular, as people become more environmentally aware.
People often find peace and sanctuary outdoors, so having a final resting place amongst the flowers and trees can be a natural choice.
Custom Memorial Services
Sometimes it can seem inappropriate to celebrate someone’s life during a funeral. A memorial service does not need to be a sombre gloomy affair. They can be a perfect way to remember a person how they were- a time to share stories and memories and laughter amongst friends and family.
Planning Ahead Alleviates Pressure when the Time Comes
It can be a great comfort to know that your family does not need to go through the pain of planning a funeral, particularly if they are uncomfortable in discussing your wishes for when the time comes.
Unless you leave clear instructions about your funeral, there can be an enormous sense of pressure by your family to ‘get it right’. This is whilst they are grieving.
We offer a ‘Living wishes’ service, where you are able to plan exactly how your funeral service should go.
This is seperate to the financial plans offered by some Funeral Directors. The Living Wishes plan purely looks at the funeral ceremony.
For example, you may wish your funeral to be more of a celebration rather than being a sombre event. By having your wishes set down beforehand removes any awkwardness or even disagreement among your family about how to arrange everything.
Giving peace of mind for everyone
As a Profession Funeral Celebrant, standards are particularly important, so that families have the peace of mind that they will receive the very best service and care.
We are therefore pleased to announce that we have agreed to follow the Funeral Accord, a voluntary set of professional standards in Funeral Celebrancy.
