There are various other considerations to be made when planning a funeral. Our funeral directors will need to know whether the funeral is to be a religious or non-religious ceremony. We’ll need to know if it’ll take place in a church or chapel. You’ll need to let us know of any music requirements for the funeral and whether you need any obituary notices to be created. We also take care of other factors associated with a funeral, such as donations, arranging for viewing in our chapel of rest, options for cremated remains, help with funeral costs, and more.
