  • You don't have to make an appointment at our funeral homes. However, doing so will ensure that someone can be available to cater to your needs. When arranging a funeral, our Funeral Directors are happy to visit you in your own home, if required.


  • Third party funeral costs are additional charges which we will manage for you and attach to your single invoice. Get in touch with us to confirm costs and plan a funeral to fit your budget.


  • If you choose to arrange the funeral with us, you will be given the option of a complimentary Funeral Notice. We will set it up for you using the details discussed during the arrangements. All we need is an email address.

The service from day one was everything I could have asked for during a difficult time. Staff were sensitive, understanding and upfront about options available which helped us to make a decision much more easily. They were able to provide recommendations for other services too and we were very grateful for their professional and approachable manner. Could not recommend highly enough! Thank you so much.
