As mentioned, there are many aspects of a funeral that need to be considered during the planning process. One of those is the choice of coffin or casket, and we can help with this decision. We have many options available, all of which are constructed using the finest materials. From traditional to modern designs, we can provide you with a coffin or casket that is suitable for your funeral in Portswood.
It is important to highlight the differences between coffins and caskets. A coffin is tapered at the head and foot, with wide shoulders, while a casket is a rectangular shape. We have models made from solid wood and veneer, giving you plenty of options so that you find the most suitable one.
As well as creating a service that is fitting for your loved one, you will also want to consider the types of flowers you would like to use. This can be a very personal decision as the family may want a certain type of flower that the deceased loved. There are obviously no strict rules on the kind of flowers one can arrange at a funeral, but the most popular tend to be lilies, orchids, carnations, roses, and chrysanthemums.
It is up to you how they are displayed. We can present them in wreaths, baskets, standing sprays, or casket sprays, which are usually used for closed casket funerals. These sprays consist of several types of flowers and greens, and half-casket sprays are generally used for open casket funerals. Our team would be happy to sit down with you and discuss your options before deciding on the flower arrangement you would like.
If you already have a florist in mind – perhaps your loved one frequently bought flowers from there – we are happy for you to choose them. We only stipulate that the arrangement be delivered to us at least 2 hours before the service to ensure that they are displayed correctly for the service. If you have any questions regarding our flower arrangement service, then please do get in touch.
As well as all that we have already mentioned, our team can also arrange memorial services in Portswood. This particular is similar to the constructs of a funeral except the body of the deceased is not present. A memorial service gives family and friends an opportunity to remember and celebrate the life of a loved one. Many opt to do this on a yearly basis, but there is no rule on when to have a memorial service.
If you are interested in setting one up, then our team are more than happy to help. We can make all the arrangements for you to help celebrate the life of your loved one. We will arrange a consultation in which we will discuss what requirements you need and features you would like present for the service.
