Arranging Funerals in Bitterne Park for a Century and a Half
Funerals, Bitterne Park residents, are not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ sort of affair. Everyone has their preferences and ideas on what would be a fitting tribute for the deceased. And, of course, the wishes of the deceased should always come first. So that we can tailor the ceremony accordingly, we’ll arrange a time to meet with you; when you’re ready, let us know if you’d like to meet at our office or at your home.
When planning funerals in Bitterne Park, we’ll need some important details, such as whether the ceremony is to be religious or non-religious. You’ll also need to provide us with some information concerning other choices for the ceremony, such as:
The last choice is very important as it’ll determine whether the deceased is laid to rest or cremated. We’ll discuss with you the various options for where the body can be buried or what can happen with the ashes. We have connections with local cemeteries, or you can opt for a family grave if one is available. For cremated remains, these can be scattered in the Crematorium Garden of Rest or a place of your choosing. We also have a wide range of urns available should you wish to keep the ashes close.
As part of our Bitterne Park funerals service, we will retain the remains at our premises for as long as required. This will allow you to speak with the family before making a final decision. Of course, if a prepaid plan exists, the wishes of the deceased will be carried out in accordance with the plan.
