Preparation of the Deceased
Hygienic treatment and attendances to the deceased are also considered to be very important by our company. The last time you saw a loved one may have been a distressing memory, perhaps in hospital or for the purposes of identification. In any event we believe that, in asking us to look after a member of your family, would like to be certain that the best that could be done for your relative has been done whether you wish to visit the deceased before the funeral or not.
Relatives and friends often wish to visit the deceased and pay their last respects. We have a lovely peaceful chapel of rest for this purpose.
We offer a selection of ashes caskets, wicker, solid wood and scatter tubes in a range of designs.
Obituary and Acknowledgement notices in local and national press.
Floral tributes can be arranged at your request. We have a close working relationship with local florists who provide floral tributes for many of our funerals.
