If cremation is chosen, and you have decided which crematorium you wish to use, then you can think about the funeral service itself.
Crematoria have a chapel in which a service can be held if you do not want or require a service held elsewhere. The crematorium also provides a music facility, either an organist or equipment on which pre-recorded music of your choice can be played. For longer services additional time may be booked at the crematorium chapels, at an extra cost.
Alternatively you may use the crematorium for a committal only, where a funeral service is held somewhere else.
After cremation, we can arrange to collect the cremated remains (ashes) from the crematorium on your behalf and hold onto them safely until you are ready to collect them from us.
Ashes can be scattered in the grounds of the crematorium, on a family grave, at a place with fond memories - in fact most places. Permission for the scattering of ashes must be obtained from the appropriate authority; we can advise you on this.
If you wish the ashes to be buried then we can advise you on all aspects of this.
You may prefer to keep the ashes in a specially designed casket or keepsake; we can tell you about the options available.
