The Traditional Funeral
At a Crematorium
A Traditional Cremation nationwide.
For many years it has been a tradition in England and Wales to have a memorial funeral service where family, friends and colleagues can pay their respects.
In past times this service would be led by the local religious minister but in the last decade funeral have become much more personal and a non-religious service has proved to be popular.
With our professional experience combining to over 100 years we have helped to arrange most styles, wishes, religions and beliefs.
Funeral directors fee
Our professional fees include all advice and guidance throughout the whole funeral process from registration to options relating to the ashes.
If the death occurs in a hospital
As most hospitals have an onsite mortuary we are able to arrange the completion of doctor's cremation certificates prior to bringing your loved one into our care.
If the death occurs away from the hospital
If your loved one passes away in a private home, a care setting or a hospice we will need to keep them close to their normal GP. This may require us to work with another funeral director for your loved one's initial care.
The most traditional style of coffin is a light oak with the golden embelishments of handles and top plumes. Our coffin range starts with a simple oak effect coffin but can be personalised as much as you wish.
The crematorium fee
Each crematorium charges different fees, we can discuss the exact charges with you and advise you on each sites facilities.
Doctor's cremation certificate
It is a requirement for a cremation that a doctor completes a cremation certificate. Prior to the coronavirus outbreak it was a requirement for two doctors to complete the forms. We are unaware if this will revert back after the epidemic finishes.
Minister or Civil celebrant
If you require a service to be lead by a Minister or Civil Celebrant.
please be aware of current funeral restrictions
Wish for a church service?
We can arrange a full church service pre or post cremation.
Each church has different fees so a bespoke cost will be discussed with you during the arrangements.
For clients requiring a coffin over 6’2″ tall or 22″ width and/or weighing in excess of 20 stone we require additional costs due to staffing needs and bespoke size coffins.
