Cremation or Burial

Cremations & Burials


One of the first decisions to be made for any funeral service is often whether it is to be a burial or a cremation. Sometimes your loved one will have indicated their preference in a will or discussion beforehand, but if they haven’t then we can help you make that choice.

All manner of religious services, secular events, burials and cremations are chosen, particularly for non-religious families who would like a celebration of life or service at a venue of their choosing.

Of course, we are more than comfortable helping you through the intricacies of any religious service or burial you may require for your loved one, and we are able to provide any care that they require to make this service possible.

When a person is cremated, their ashes can be returned to you. If you would like your loved one’s ashes to be interred after the cremation, you will need to choose where, for example, a graveyard, crematorium, or in a natural burial ground.

If there’s a type of funeral that isn’t mentioned above, we can still help you. Contact us today to find out how.
