Things to Consider When Planning A Funeral

Planning a funeral requires a great deal of forethought and care. It’s easy to lose sight of things when going through a period of grief, which is why we’re here to help guide you through the process. Here are some things to consider when planning a funeral:

Type of service

Choose between a burial or cremation. We offer various different types of burials, including woodland burials and burials at sea. You should also consider whether you wish to have a religious or non-religious ceremony.


Choose when and where the funeral will be held.


Determine your budget and discuss costs with a trusted funeral undertaker. Fixed-price funeral plans are available. In any case, we will give you the full price of any plan before you commit.

Order of Service

Place an order of service. This may include hymns, songs, readings and other features.


Select the music, if any, to be played during the service.


Consider how the family of the deceased will be travelling to the funeral. You may wish for a traditional funeral car or a themed vehicle that celebrates the individuality of the deceased.


A wake is a special period following the funeral service that gives friends and family a chance to come together and share their favourite memories of their loved one. Wakes often take place at pubs or restaurants, but you may wish for a more intimate setting, such as in somebody’s home.
