How do I personalise a funeral?

There are many ways to personalise the funeral so that the service is a more true reflection of your loved one. Take your time to select readings, poems or prayers that resonate with you and your family, perhaps the outlook of your loved one. Maybe you could consider a natural burial ground? You might choose to pick a celebrant that feels like a good fit for your family, or that honours the faith or spiritual beliefs of your family.

Personalisation comes in many forms. For instance, some families ask the mourners to wear colourful clothing, while others ask for a more traditional affair and be dressed in black. You might opt for a horse-drawn hearse, a standard hearse, or perhaps even a vehicle that means something to your loved one. We have access to to a wide range of funeral vehicles and have catered to a diverse range of requests.

What to do with your loved one’s ashes

You might choose to do something with your loved ones ashes too. Some people choose to have the cremated remains interred, where they are buried in a cemetery. Meanwhile, other families choose to scatter them at a location that’s special. Alternatively, you also have the option to have your loved one’s ashes made into jewellery. An increasingly popular option is to have your loved one’s ashes incorporated into a rocket and sent up as part of a firework display.

With so many options to choose from, it can be a bit daunting. You can check our Your choices section for inspiration or you can contact us and one of our team will talk you through some ideas that are right for you.
