Types of funerals
There are a number of different types of funerals available. Which one you choose will depend on your beliefs, or those of your loved one and whether you chose a burial or cremation. Cremation is the most popular form of funeral with a service at the crematorium, in a church or other venue prior to the cremation.
If you’d like something a bit different, personalised or less formal than a traditional service, we can support, guide and inspire you to create a farewell that is a true celebration of life.
