Our Services

We offer private chapels of rest, a floral service, a monumental masonry service and a range of catering options. We can also offer our clients confidential home arrangements and a range of pre-payment plans.

 

Special Arrangements

Special interest funerals have become more popular in recent years and we can make arrangements as required. Our horse drawn hearse, for instance, would be ideal for someone who had an interest in horses or horse racing. And as a tribute to a keen motorcyclist we can offer a Suzuki, Triumph or Harley Davidson hearse. We will always endeavour to provide a service which is a true celebration of someone’s life. Please ask for full details.
