We want you to know that all that is available right now, is not all that will be available in the future. We are all having to adapt the way we live and how we do things. But it is just temporary.
It is the same with funerals. In order to support you and your family, we have made some adjustments to our services.
In addition to the services provided in our Full Service Funeral we will now include the following:
Whilst the number of people who can attend the funeral at the moment is restricted, it can still be a day of remembrance and reflection and not just for those that are there.
We will still organise a service for you.
The coffin will be transported to the cemetery or crematorium in our hearse, and perhaps we can drive a route that will pass certain households where dear friends may be able to stand outside as we drive by.
A short ceremony can take place, including a eulogy, readings, hymns, music or whatever you wish to happen. Where the technology is available, video or audio messages and readings can be played during the funeral service, live streaming can be arranged, and digital recordings of the service taken for viewing later.
At the time of the service – those not able to attend could hold their own personal memorial. This could be as simple as lighting a candle or preparing a meal in honour of the person who has died.
Maybe it’s doing something you or others associated with them, watching their much-loved TV show, reading their favourite material, or sharing the time with other family members and friends over a video call.
Our Funeral Directors are here to help families organise a dignified and respectful funeral during the Coronavirus pandemic and a personalised memorial service later, once restrictions are no longer in place
A funeral is about remembering the life lived of an individual and that can be done now and in the future. When the social distancing rules will once again allow friends and family to come together, to share their grief and celebration of their loved one.
We will appoint one of our experienced, professional and fully trained funeral personnel to guide and support you through every step.
Here’s a summary of the services that we will provide at a later date.
The funeral now and memorial service later is provided as an addition to our Full Service Funeral.
Upon arranging the service with you the following will be applicable
