What we will do

We will offer guidance, continuous support, and discuss all aspects of the funeral in order to make the service a personal and fitting tribute to your loved one. We can arrange to meet with the family in the comfort of your own home or at our office in Tunstall.

Arranging a funeral involves making some big decisions. These decisions include where the service will be held, either at a Church, at a Crematorium or at a Cemetery. Some thought will have to go into the content and personalisation of the service, such as hymns to be sung, poems or eulogies to be read out and music to be played. Other decisions will include press notices, order of service, catering, whether to visit the chapel of rest, the use of limousines, floral tributes as well as the type of coffin. There are quite a number of things that you will need to consider, we aim to offer a great deal of support so that you are able to make the funeral service for your loved one as personalised and as fitting as possible.
