We have conducted funerals all over the United Kingdom and are more than pleased to be able to provide repatriation and funeral services if clients wish to go home for their resting place.

As well as our ‘at need’ package we offer in conjunction with our partners Golden Charter a comprehensive pre need funeral plan scheme to suit all budgets and demands.

We are all aware of the need to protect our planet for future generations. Although an environmentally friendly funeral is a relatively new idea, we simply see it as another way to provide a dignified farewell. We will assist with everything from woodland burials to the provision of both traditional wooden and alternative coffins from sustainable sources. We can also assist with natural memorials such as the planting, donation or sponsorship of a tree.

We can offer embalming which removes the unkind physical effects of an illness or accident and help to restore a person’s true appearance. It is done to allow you and your family to remember the person as they were in life. You may choose embalming because you want to see your loved one “at peace” or because you would like more time to say goodbye.
