How do you wish to say goodbye?

There are so many ways to make saying goodbye personal, from photography, live music, even our staff wearing a favourite colour personal to your loved one. Below are some of the aspects of the day you may wish to consider. If you choose to appoint us to take care of the arrangements, we will arrange a mutually convenient time to meet and discuss the arrangements in finer detail. Ordinarily we will meet you in the comfort and familiar surroundings of your own home, however if preferred you are always welcome to arrange this meeting at our funeral homes, via telephone, email or video call.
