Floral tributes have always played an integral part of goodbyes. However, these days many families often choose to have family flowers only and request donations to charity as an alternative way to honour and remember their loved one.
We have our own fully qualified in-house florist who creates spectacular floral tributes both traditional and unique. Brenda is happy to discuss your requests in person, by telephone or email, whatever is most convenient for you. If your loved one was a keen gardener, you may wish to incorporate flowers from their garden creating a tribute even more personal.
After a cremation, the flowers usually remain in the Garden of Remembrance for up to a week and then they are removed to allow subsequent tributes to be displayed. If you wish to have the flowers taken home, to a family grave or donated to local worthy causes we can organise this for you. Similarly, if you would like us to collect the cards attached to the floral tributes we can arrange this also, many people request this as they can read the messages of condolence in their own time or they may wish to put them in a memory box.
For a burial, the flowers remain on the grave.
