The Service

We take pride in offering a service that doesn’t feel impersonal or rushed. Everyone is given 45 minutes, which includes approximately 30 minutes for the service itself and time either side for mourners to arrive and leave. For a large group of mourners or those who feel they need more time, we’re happy to arrange a 90-minute slot. We can provide services in the evenings and at weekends.

During the service you are welcome to record or film as you wish. Or you may prefer for us to record the service onto a CD for you to give to relatives who were unable to attend. We are happy to do this for a £10 donation towards our charitable foundation.

We know this is a difficult time for you, so we make it our duty to ensure everything is taken care of. From the minister to the music, our chapel attendant will liaise with the funeral director to make sure things run smoothly throughout the service. After the committal, you’ll be guided through the doors to the Flower Court where you can spend time viewing the floral tributes among your family and friends.

If you have any questions about the service, please contact us on 01438 815555.
