Design Your Own Funeral Ceremony

By choosing to ‘design your own’ funeral ceremony, we give you many choices with regards to:

Clergy or Celebrants
Churches, Chapels or other alternative Venues
Coffins or Caskets
Music, Memorial Stationary, DVD Tributes

It is important to discuss the available options with family members and your dedicated Greenhaven Funeral Consultant.

There is no need to rush, once your loved one is taken into our care, you can take your time.

There is no set time scale to when the funeral has to be held, except in the case of certain religious cultures or faiths that require an individual’s funeral to be organised and completed within a certain time-frame.  Don’t be rushed or forced into something you don’t want, give yourself time to think about all the decisions.
