Attended Funeral

This is a funeral where family and friends have a ceremony, event or service for the deceased person at the same time as they attend their burial or cremation.

We will convey your loved one into our care individually as soon as possible, no extra costs if they pass away out of hours.

There is a choice of whether you’d like your loved one’s committal to be a service of Cremation or Burial. The Attended Funeral allows you to spend time with your loved one in the Chapel of Rest within office hours, with no extra costs to be dressed in their own clothes or a night gown. We look after your loved one with dignity & respect at all times.

The hearse will meet you at the crematorium or graveside.

There are restrictions of times for your loved one’s funeral to take place.

Bespoke options such as different coffins, Limousines, placing newspaper notices, arranging the floral tributes, putting together Orders of Service or providing catering unfortunately cannot be added to this service.
