A funeral is for those left behind. Grief is an honouring of the love and respect held for the person who has died. A funeral gives an opportunity to share in the farewell and a chance to say goodbye whilst often assisting the bereaved family with accepting that their loved one has died and allows them to express their emotions.
At the time of making arrangements, be assured that when you talk with one of our understanding Funeral Directors, you will be treated as a friend, because we genuinely care and are at your call 24 hours a day.
Certain decisions need to be made during arrangements, and with your Funeral Director’s guidance, these are some of the things to consider;
- Burial or Cremation (cultural and beliefs)
- A funeral service or no funeral service
- When and where is the funeral to be held
- Is your loved one going home or staying with us for visitations
- Clergy or Funeral Celebrant
- Newspaper notices
- Casket Flowers or personal memorabilia
- Music, DVD, tapes or live music
- DVD recording of the service for family who can not attend
- Power point presentation
- Other organizations to be involved e.g. R.S.A., Bowling Clubs
- Memorial book to record who attended
- Pall Bearers
- Head Stones and Memorials
