Just a simple funeral

Many of our families come to us needing assistance with their funeral needs and they quite often say they’re loved one just want something simple, no fuss.  Just a simple funeral ...

And that’s completely fine.. but what does ‘ just a simple funeral‘ really mean?

  • Did they want a particle board or cardboard coffin with a beautiful coloured pall and seasonal flowers to match.
  • Perhaps an eco-friendly coffin, made of sustainable timber that family and friends can write messages of love and their condolences.
  • What about a beautiful bio-degradable shroud and a graveside ceremony conducted by the family or perhaps a celebrant followed by a burial in a natural burial ground,
  • Maybe just funeral prayers in their local parish church with a handwoven, willow casket that has been decorated by flowers from the garden,
  • Many of our families have organised an elegant, intimate farewell service at home, with a modest coffin and family members in attendance.
  • Or perhaps a private cremation followed by a memorial service at a place your friend or family member loved, such as a golf club, park or the beach.
