For some the traditional style of funeral, in the church or crematorium, is the right one. You can have a traditional looking non-religious funeral, or with religion. It can be comforting in its familiarity, quietly dignified for someone who liked tradition, held formal religious belief, or who would not have wanted a fuss made over them. It can also be made into a grand occasion with the black horses and carriage, beautiful flowers, high church service.
The hallmarks of a traditional funeral are the black hearse and limousine, wooden coffin, black clad funeral staff and bearers, familiar liturgy, a hymn or other well-known song. Small touches can make a traditional funeral more personal through family involvement, a heartfelt eulogy by a family member, a picture of the person who has died on the coffin, a personal reading or piece of music.
We undertake funerals in all the churches in the area, Anglican, Methodist, Catholic and other churches.
