We will provide our own traditional chauffeur driven hearse to convey the person who has passed away to the place of committal. Please note; No hearse is included in the "Direct Service", your loved one will be transported to the crematorium via our Private Ambulance.
We have a wide range of coffins available, included in all our packages as standard is an oak veneered coffin.
The Day of the Service
The coffin will be transported in our hearse to the local crematorium or cemetery and will be accompanied by the Funeral Director. When at the place of committal, the coffin will be taken from the hearse by the appropriate number of bearers and will be lead into the chapel by the Funeral Director. Music chosen by you will be played on entry to the chapel or church. The bearers and Funeral Director will bow in respect to your loved one and then leave the chapel, the service as arranged with you will then proceed. Please note; if our "Direct Service" is selected, no music will be played at the chapel.
Care Of The Cremated Remains (Where Applicable)
The crematorium will provide a simple container for the cremated remains. Cremated remains can be scattered at the crematorium Garden of Rest, can be collected by a nominated member of the family, or we can collect them on your behalf and hold them on our premises until you have decided where you would like your loved ones final resting place to be.
