The Traditional Funeral

The Traditional Funeral has long been the classic way to say goodbye to your loved one.

The Traditional Funeral allows you to arrange a funeral that is personalised to what you want.  We will have a personal meeting with you to ensure that every aspect of the funeral is arranged according to your wishes giving you the space and time you need at a difficult time.  We will liaise with third parties to arrange all aspects of the funeral allowing these third party disbursement costs to be added to your funeral invoice account so that you only need to make one simple payment to us.  We are here to give you that supportive hand and guidance that you may need to hopefully make the whole process or arranging the funeral that little bit easier.  If you want more information about our Traditional Funerals, please contact one of our offices.
