Our Reputed Bitterne Funeral Parlour
When you arrive at the premises – or we arrive at yours – the J Lawrence & Sons team will start going through the options step by step. The first decision that needs to be made is between a burial or a cremation.
Religion can play a part in this decision, of course, as burials are seen by some people as a more permanent traditional resting place. On the other hand, a cremation may give more options of where the remains are finally placed or scattered as some people choose to leave instructions for this.
The service can be held in a church beforehand or – if a religious service isn’t appropriate – our funeral parlour in Bitterne can arrange for it to be held at one of the chapels instead. Hymns can be sung but recorded music can also be played.
Our funeral parlour, Bitterne customers, has long-established contacts with the British Humanist Association and several recommended independent speakers as well, so if you’d like the service to feature a non-religious speaker, let us know, so we can get in touch with the best people for the job.
