Personalised Tributes: Making Memories Last 

Losing a loved one is an incredibly difficult experience, and at J Lawrence & Sons, we understand the significance of creating personalised tributes that truly reflect the essence of those we say farewell to. One of the traditional gestures of sympathy is the art of funeral flowers, which has existed for thousands of years. Choosing the right flower arrangement for a funeral is essential, and we aim to assist families in finding the most appropriate choice. 

With an array of funeral flowers available, from orchids and lilies to chrysanthemums and roses, we offer various arrangements such as: 

  • Wreaths 
  • Baskets 
  • Sprays for Caskets 
  • Standing Sprays 

We understand that each individual may have unique preferences, and our funeral directors are here to listen to your ideas and guide you towards the perfect arrangement that honours your loved one. 

Cultural and religious traditions are crucial, as they may influence the choice of funeral flowers. Our team is well-versed in various cultural practices and can help you navigate these sensitive considerations. 

Beyond the floral arrangements, we also support organising memorial services. Whether religious or non-religious, we will work closely with you to incorporate your desired features, including music requirements. We aim to ensure that every memorial service is a fitting and heartfelt tribute to the life of your loved one. 

At J Lawrence & Sons, we also understand the significance of choosing the right coffin or casket for the funeral.
