A limousine can take up to 7 family members or friends to the service, either following the hearse or separately. We have additional limousines if required
If any family members or friends are visiting the deceased in our chapel of rest it can sometimes be appropriate to carry out some hygienic treatment in order to ensure that your loved one can be presented to the highest standard. The Funeral Director will advise you further on this matter.
Recording Names and Supplying a Typed List
We can supply two or three members of staff to take the names of all those who attend the service. These names are then typed up and a printed list of the names is sent to you
We can advise on the options available for floral tributes, and either liaise with a local florist on your behalf or give you their contact details so you can speak to them directly.
A notice advising of the details for the funeral can be placed in a local newspaper and/or in a national newspaper. The cost depends on the length of the notice but notices in national newspapers are significantly higher than those in local newspapers
Alternative Hearses (Horse Drawn or Motorcycle)
If you would prefer an alternative to a traditional motor hearse, a horse drawn funeral carriage or a motorcycle hearse can be used to transport the deceased to the service
