A Celebration of Life

celebration of life funeral serviceA celebration of someone’s life is a very personal and private alternative to a traditional funeral service. It focuses on the happy memories and life experiences of the person you are saying goodbye to. It brings comfort and a sense of relief that the personalised service was totally shaped around the family.

We put you at the centre of all they do. Very experienced Funeral Directors listen, guide, support and encourage you into choosing what is right for you and your family. Our Funeral Directors have lost close family and so they understand the pain someone feels at the loss of a loved one. This personalised and sensitive approach completely ensures any and all your wishes are completely taken care of. As a family, our family completely look after yours and that also means we carefully watch the costs for you so ensure you get the best possible care at the best possible price!

Where you want to hold a funeral and how you want the funeral to go is completely your choice! Things like the choice of location, being held at a golf club, village hall or hotel rather than in church or at the crematorium are things we will deal with on your behalf. Our aim is to remove every worry, cause for concern or anxiety you may be experiencing. If you need us to we are more than happy to make an appointment on your behalf and take you to the Registrar’s Office if you are unsure what to do.

We are a Christian based family. Our staff represent a variety of faiths and we are also very knowledgeable about Humanist Funeral’s, Green Funerals, Hindu and Sikh religious and cultural requirements. We are equally very experienced in a non religious or non clergy led service of any kind. We can even help you devise a funeral service and support you through the process should you wish to take the service, read a poem or present a eulogy or speech to celebrate or pay tribute to the person we are helping you say goodbye to.

We have our own private service chapel and we can also video record any such service should you wish to share it with family, abroad or who could not travel for the funeral.

The most important thing to remember is you will never get an ‘off the shelf’ funeral package from us. What you can completely trust us to do is to listen to your expectations and turn them into reality.
