Honouring Life

The core of our service is based upon creating meaningful ceremonies that reflect the life, beliefs and relationships of the unique individual who has died and the family they leave behind.

Whatever your beliefs we are here to help you express them. Whatever made your loved one special we will help you celebrate it.

What is a Good Funeral?

A “good” funeral ceremony speaks truthfully about the life you and your family shared with the person who has died. It prepares you and your family for the journey ahead.

It feels right

There are no rules you must follow, although there are many comforting traditions that have been adopted over the years.

You are free to create a unique ceremony made up of the words, music, location, vehicles, flowers, tributes and memorials that are meaningful to your family….

… and by listening carefully we are able to transform a daunting array of options into clear and satisfying choices.

Together we can make sure that each detail contributes to a unique and satisfying “whole”, whether you choose a traditional religious burial service, a contemporary firework scattering of ashes, or something in between.

The Value of the Funeral

You only get one chance to create a funeral ceremony.

Having served thousands of families over the last 20 years we have seen first-hand how the funeral ceremony affects a family’s ability to find peace and we believe that a good funeral is one of the most valuable gatherings in life.

We know that a sense of “getting it just right” has a profound effect on everyone who experiences a good funeral. This quiet satisfaction is a source of lasting comfort, so take your time….

There is no rush

The families we serve are gently guided through the important and sometimes difficult decisions with compassion and patience.

This is a ceremony that can never be repeated and whose memories will be long lasting – so it is our privilege to listen, to advise and then carry out your wishes.

Together we’ll create a ceremony that prepares you and your family for the journey ahead.

We are with you each and every step of the way
