As far as the actual type of funeral service is concerned, most people choose from one of a variety of common formats. Here are some of the more common service types held:
Single venue service with cremation or burial
A service is normally held in a chapel, church or other external venue and is followed by a non-attended cremation or burial.
Multiple venue service with cremation or burial
A service is normally held in a chapel, church or other external venue and is followed by an attended committal service at the crematorium or graveside.
An attended service is held at the graveside and incorporates the burial.
Normally held in a chapel, church or other external venue some time after a non-attended burial or cremation. Sometimes this service is held at the time of memorialising ashes.
A private cremation or burial with no-one in attendance.
Funerals are made up of a number of components, each designed to help personalise the funeral. The aim of including these extra components is to enhance your plans and develop a more meaningful funeral experience unique to the individual.
You may want to think about the variety of things you can do to make the funeral reflect the life of the person who has died and of course, we will do our best to arrange anything we can for you.
Some of the options that are often considered are:
- Funeral location and venue set up
- Celebrant or Clergy
- Flowers and other symbol selections
- Music and tribute displays
- Eulogy and readings
- Orders of Service and other memorial stationery
- Hearses (Contemporary, vintage, or specialised)
- Releasing doves, butterflies or lanterns
