Bespoke Funerals

Bespoke Funerals

It is our aim to help you to arrange a funeral to suit you and your family whatever your needs. These might range from a simple unattended funeral, also known as a Direct Cremation, to a large funeral with a personalised ceremony where friends and family decorate the coffin, have refreshments and hold their own ceremony in a venue of their choice.

When someone chooses to die at home and the death is expected, we work with the family beforehand to arrange a smooth collection after the death has occurred. This might be done straight after the doctor has visited or it can involve us washing and dressing the deceased (on our own or with relatives) allowing the family and friends to then take a private farewell of their loved one in familiar surroundings before we take the deceased to our Resting Place. The family and friends are always welcome to visit the deceased at our Resting Place at a later date.


To give you a better idea of overall costs, we have priced our services separately to enable you to choose exactly what you would like.
