We work with people from any religion, faith and background. If you're planning a religious funeral, we can make many arrangements to accommodate your religious needs as well as your loved one's wishes.

Religious funerals often bring friends and family together to mark the passing, and celebrate the life of someone who was important to them. The decision of cremation or burial may be dictated by religious beliefs or may simply reflect the requests of a loved one before they passed away.
If you are arranging a religious funeral service, the ceremony can be as flexible as you like. Our supportive Funeral Directors are aware that religious funerals can mean more complex arrangements. It may be held in a place of worship, though dependent on religion, it can also take place at a crematorium or alternative location.
Should your religion require, we offer facilities for ritual washing and additional religious ceremony support. The service may need to be led by a religious leader and could include prayers, hymns or any religious readings. We are well-verses in many religious funeral requirements and can happily support these. Whatever the faith of your loved one, we can accommodate a fitting religious funeral service.
We have created a series of religious funeral guides which offer further information about different religious funerals and their customs. Each guide explains what happens at a religious funeral and what you should expect. Read our religious funeral guides for more information on many religious funeral practices.
