Frequently Asked Questions

While we can help, most people also choose to make their own decisions on the flowers and music that will be played.

A eulogy is a few words that pay tribute to your loved one’s life, said at some point during the service. You can decide who is best to write or read the eulogies.

Yes, many people choose specific clothing for their loved one to wear when buried or cremated. This is sometimes an outfit of particular significance, or just one you know they liked.

It’s never a formal requirement to have a funeral service. However, many families believe that a funeral assists in dealing with the grieving process, offering a chance to say a proper goodbye. Many people would say that a funeral service is a thing that provides them with some closure at such a hard time.

Typically, people try to arrange a funeral to take place one or two weeks after the death has happened. However, this is down to personal preference, and it’s no problem if the planning process needs more time.
