Funerals as Individual as the Deceased
Last week we had the privilege to conduct funerals which were as individual
as the lives of the deceased.
I had the honour of conducting the funeral of a retired Gamekeeper.
His family chose a bespoke coffin and a Landrover Hearse from #onelifelivedit with following vehicle. Together with a very rural setting and the sun shining it made a sad day much brighter.

Paul had the honour of conducting the funeral of a retired London Bus diver who was also an avid West Ham supporter. His family chose to represent his life in flowers. Unfortunately the weather was not so kind but a Hearse and 2 Limousines made for a very traditional funeral.
Experiencing a Bereavement
The death of someone close to us is a very personal experience and is likely to be one of the most painful we will ever suffer, it can be also be one of life's greatest challenges.
The death may or may not be expected but nothing will prepare you for the emotional shock of losing someone close. Dealing and coping with a death is never easy, it can be even harder when it feels impossible to talk about the practical issues that
accompany such a loss, you may feel lonely or isolated as if you're the only one taking responsibility, this is only natural and will be made easier with our help and guidance.
This web site is a basic extension of the information that we can provide through our brochure, which is provided at your time of need,
but nothing can compare to a personal, friendly chat.
Arranging a Funeral
Our services to you begin with your first contact and extend, not only up to and
including the funeral but often way beyond.
We understand how difficult it can be for you arranging a funeral for a loved one and
how important it is for a family to discuss and agree upon the funeral arrangements, especially with the many options and choices that are available.
Many questions will arise following the death of a loved one -
is there a will ? are their final wishes known ? is there a funeral plan ?
A funeral service can include several elements -
church or place of worship, crematorium or cemetery, hearse or alternative transport,
music, flowers, donations, obituaries, orders of service, funeral wake or tea
These will all be brought together for you by us, through listening to your requests,
advising where needed and liaising with the parties concerned, thus ensuring that
the day runs as smoothly as possible.
Many families prefer to make the arrangements in the familiar and comfortable surroundings of their own home, we are happy to visit you in your own home.
