Our Services

You should contact us as soon as possible after the death of your loved one, even before obtaining the Medical Certificate.

We will arrange to meet with  you to make all  necessary arrangements for the service. 





The forms which need to be completed for a cremation are:

  • Application for cremation form signed by the next of kin or executor
  • Cremation certificates. Due to rules brought in because of  Covid 19, only one doctor is required to complete cremation forms.
  • We order and collect these forms on your behalf when we collect the deceased from hospital or, if the death has occurred at home/care home we organise the doctors to complete them.
  • There is a fee of £82.00 at present for these forms  unless the death is referred to the coroner and a post mortem is carried out in which case the coroner will issue the paperwork (Form 6) straight to us and there is no fee for it
  • Certificate for Burial or Cremation issued by the Registrar (not required if the coroner has issued a Form 6)



  • Certificate for Burial or Cremation issued by the Registrar (not required if the coroner has issued a Burial Order)
  • An interment form for the chosen cemetery which we will complete on your behalf


If  you prefer a burial service this will usually follow a service in church or chapel.

Occasionally families request a graveside service only.

We can also arrange woodland or natural burials.


The Funeral Service


Whether you require a Church of England, Methodist or Catholic service we will contact the minister of your chosen church/chapel to make arrangements for their minister to meet with you to discuss the type of service you would like.

You may chose to have a service in a church or chapel followed by a short committal service at the crematorium or you may wish to have all the service at the crematorium.


Sometimes families prefer to have the committal service at the crematorium first followed by a Memorial Service in Church/Chapel.


If you would prefer a non-religious ceremony we can organise a Civil or Humanist Celebrant to officiate at the crematorium.

Ashes can be scattered in the garden of remembrance at the crematorium or buried in a churchyard or cemetery.

We can arrange this for you. You may wish to keep the cremated remains yourself.



In the case of a burial service, if a cemetery burial plot has already been purchased, you should have received a burial deed issued by the cemetery clerk.

We can purchase new plots on your behalf if they have not already been purchased.

Most burial grounds locally are cemeteries, but there are some churchyards in use.

We will liaise with the vicar/churchwarden with regards to churchyard burial plots.


Music, Poems and Readings


You may chose hymns, a favourite piece of music or a mixture of both and include a poem or reading if you wish.  


Order of Service


We print Order of Service sheets in house and you can choose to have a photograph of your loved one on the cover or a cross instead.

We are more than happy to discuss your own ideas.

We also print attendance cards which are given out at the service for mourners to write their names and a message to the family if they wish.


Flowers And  Donations


Many people choose to have floral tributes from close family only and ask for donations to a chosen charity instead.

We forward on the donations to the charity on your behalf around two weeks after the service. You will then receive a letter of acknowledgement/thanks from them. Some families prefer just floral tributes and no donations.

We will always advise you what time we need the flowers delivered to our Chapel of Rest so you can tell the florist when you arrange them.You may wish that we bring the flowers back after the crematorium service and place them on a family grave or take them to the local Church/Chapel




Whether you chose a traditional oak coffin, willow or one printed with a favourite scene we can arrange it.


Transport to the Service


You can either travel to the service in your own vehicle or we can arrange a limousine car to collect you.

A hearse is what the majority of families choose for transporting their loved one to the service but  there are many other modes of transport we can arrange including a horse drawn  hearse or motorcycle hearse.


Newspaper notices 


We can arrange for an announcement to be placed in your local newspapers or in the national press to notify people the details of the service.


Chapel of Rest Visits


Our private, modern, purpose built Chapel of Rest provides a peaceful place for your last goodbyes to a loved one.

Visits to the Chapel of Rest are by appointment.

We realise that it is often difficult for family members to arrange time off  from work, even at times of a bereavement so, as we live just opposite the Chapel of Rest, we offer appointments in the early evening and usually a Saturday morning for you to visit if work commitments prevent you from visiting in normal working hours.

There is no extra charge for this.

We have ample off street parking and you are welcome to take as long as you need.
