Funeral flowers and floral tributes
Giving funeral flowers and floral tributes can help many people express their feelings and emotions during such a difficult time. They are a beautiful way of creating a personal tribute to a loved one.
This guide will help you arrange funeral flowers and floral tributes:
- Funeral flower arrangements
- What to write on funeral flowers
- Where to send funeral flowers and floral tributes
Although they’re not compulsory, funeral flowers help loved ones express their love for the deceased and choosing an appropriate floral tribute can significantly aid the grieving process.
There are many types of floral and funeral flower arrangements to choose from and our caring funeral professionals will be able to talk you through all of your available options.
Here are a few examples of the more commonly used flower arrangements:
- Funeral wreaths
- Floral arrangements
- Coffin sprays
- Casket sprays
- Inside pieces
Finding the right words that convey the love and memories shared with someone who has sadly passed away can be very difficult. The card that accompanies funeral flowers only needs a few kind words of remembrance.
A few examples include:
- Gone but never forgotten
- You will be sorely missed
- In loving memory
- Always in my heart
- Treasured memories
- Forever in our thoughts
- May you rest in peace
If you’re stuck for what to write, don’t be afraid to keep it simple. The most important thing is that you’ve shown that you care at such a difficult and upsetting time.
We recommend sending funeral flowers and floral tributes straight to the funeral home or where the funeral service is being held.
The funeral director will be able to arrange for the flowers to be delivered to the place of burial or cremation on the day of the funeral. Please ensure you give the funeral director enough time to be able to make these arrangements for you.
If you wish to arrange flowers with a local florist, please speak to your local Funeral Director about these arrangements.
Our unique online Funeral Notices service gives family and friends the opportunity to send flowers and floral tributes directly to the funeral service.
