We believe that funerals are an opportunity to honour the deceased and celebrate the life that they lived, however we understand that this means different things to different people. That’s why we don’t offer a “one size fits all” service.

Our range of coffins and caskets is extensive to say the least, and many can be personalised to your exact specification.

Whilst our own fleet consists of Daimler hearses and limousines we can source almost any type of vehicle that you require, in fact practically anything that would have been dear to the heart of your loved one, from Motorcycle Hearses and Vintage Lorries, to Canal Barges, Steam Trains and, Horse-drawn carriages.

And if all this sounds complicated, don’t worry. Our team will use the life story of your loved one as the starting point for any suggestions, transforming the daunting array of options into satisfying choices, taking you hand in hand through the entire process.

Memorials and Keepsakes

Many find it helpful to have a special piece to help them remember the relationship they shared. Memorials and Keepsakes provide a lasting tribute to your loved one and can be as small or large as you desire. Our range includes jewellery, ornaments for the home, garden monuments, headstones and more.

We source from the finest craftsmen and women in the world and if you can describe it we can make it, whether it be from precious metals or stone.

Simply speak to one of our team about how you wish to remember your loved one or visit our online store for ideas and prices.

Community Services

Many of our services are available to everyone, even if you have not used us for your funeral or memorial of your loved one.

We believe that part of our role is to support the community we work and live in. This includes charity work, helping those less fortunate than ourselves and being involved in community activities.

We are always willing to discuss your ideas so please feel free to contact one of our team.

Dear Brian,

Just a quick email to congratulate you and your team, for what I perceived to be a thoroughly professional and well executed funeral yesterday - it was exceptionally well organised, there was real care and commitment evident, and you were all a pleasure to work with!

Many thanks and well done... You are all welcome back anytime.
