What you'll need to consider

From the time you first contact us, either by telephone or personally at our offices, to the time when the funeral arrangements are completed, we assure you of our confidentiality and personal care.

It may be that particular wishes for a person’s funeral have been expressed prior to death in a conversation, a will or in a prepaid arranged funeral plan. Alternatively you may be unclear as to what might be appropriate. Either way, we will explain and discuss with you all the options available.
