Funeral Options

Burial

  • You may already have a family grave or plot. We can arrange for this to be reopened and the headstone removed before burial
  • There are several types of cemetery to choose from, such as:
  • Lawn cemeteries. Here each grave is covered with grass and marked with a commemorative plaque placed horizontally at the head of the grave at ground-level and;

  • Monumental cemeteries. Where headstones or other monuments made of marble, granite or similar materials rise vertically above the ground

Cremation

  • Cremations can cost less than a burial
  • The funeral service can be held at the crematorium; most will have a chapel
  • The service may also take place in a church or another location before going to the crematorium
  • You will need to decide the final resting place of the ashes. You can keep the ashes in an urn, scatter or bury them

Memorial Service

  • A memorial is generally a funeral service without the coffin present.

  • Offers family and friends the opportunity to remember and celebrate the life of your loved one

  • Express their grief and say their goodbyes in an appropriate and respectful manner.
  • Families who plan a memorial after a cremation commonly hold the service with the ashes and urn present.

  • A memorial also allows the option to include a scattering or tree-planting ceremony as part of the memorial service.
