Before the funeral
Once everything has been organized by our director, we will write to the person designated as the principle contact to confirm the main details about the funeral. If it wasn't given at the time the arrangements were made, we will also provide a written estimate of all the known funeral costs with this letter.

~ Order your own floral tributes if applicable.
~ Organise the caterer or hotel for the reception after the
funeral if this is required.
~ Pay your last respects to the deceased with a visit to
the Chapel of rest, if desired.

other organisations about the death. For more

~ If relatives and friends are planning to follow the
funeral cortege in their own transport, ask us for maps
of the route we propose to use to get to the service
