Arranging The Service

…put your trust in us

Funeral Services have changed over the years and although traditional services are still popular, more and more people are choosing to personalise their own Service.

We strongly believe that families should be given the opportunity to choose exactly how they want to celebrate the life of a loved one.

This may be through a poem, favourite piece of music, a picture coffin or even a Motorcycle Hearse to take the deceased on their last journey.


Helpful information

Where possible please keep a parking space directly outside the house for the Funeral Vehicles. It is also helpful for all vehicles to be facing the same way.

Please decide who is travelling in which car and with whom, before the cortege is ready to leave.

If there are several private cars following the Funeral Vehicles, then please ensure the last driver knows the way.

Traditional or Bespoke Funeral vehicles

Our chauffeur driven Limousines seat 7 people comfortably. It is usual for the Principal Mourners to travel in this vehicle.

We can arrange for additional Limousines if required.

We are delighted to supply alternative Funeral Vehicles such as Horse-drawn or Motorcycle. Please discuss your requirements as we are here to help.

Choosing a coffin is often one of the hardest aspects of arranging a Funeral.

Flowers & Catering

Flowers & Tributes

Flowers at a Funeral are a simple and beautiful way to create a personal tribute and might include bouquets, wreaths and sprays, through to coffin displays and specialist designs.

Whatever you feel would be an appropriate tribute can be created for you.

Please arrange for your floral tributes to be delivered to our Funeral Premises on the morning of the Funeral.

Catering for relatives & friends of the family

There are many exciting venues available for a gathering, from exclusive hotels to pubs or marquees. We can also suggest many alternatives with a theme if required such as Exeter Chiefs Rugby Stadium or Exeter City Football Club or possibly a local National Trust property.

Press Announcements, Donations, Service Sheets

We can organise press announcements
We can help you to compile wording for press announcements for both local and National newspapers if required.

Should you wish, after the Funeral we can also place an acknowledgement to thank relatives & friends for their kind donations & support.

Donations
You may wish that only family flowers are sent to the Funeral and that donations are sent to the Charity of your choice.

We collect donations on your behalf and provide a list of donors and the total amount given. We then ask the Charity to acknowledge receipt of this sum directly to the Next of Kin or Executor. We normally allow 4 to 6 weeks for collection of donations.

Service Sheets
Many families like to have the hymns and order of service printed. This would show the name of the deceased, possibly a short text and other details you would like included. We can arrange the printing of these, in consultation with the Officiating Minister. Please let us know as soon as possible if you require this service.

Thank-you cards
If you wish to thank various family and friends in writing for flowers, donations etc, after the Funeral, we can supply thank-you cards.

There are many forms a Funeral Service can take, we will guide and assist you throughout and make all necessary arrangements on your behalf.

We have helped many families from all denominations during their time of bereavement.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require further help or information.

Green Burials
We are dedicated to helping you arrange a truly personal celebration of the life that has passed.

Care of the Deceased

Care of the deceased
We care for the deceased in a hygienic and respectful manner. If required we can embalm should a longer delay be required prior to the
Funeral Service. (Your Funeral Director will advise).

Removal of Jewellery
We will remove all jewellery unless we are instructed otherwise.

Health & Safety
Whenever possible we prefer to shoulder the coffin into Church or Crematorium.

Some families wish to provide their own bearers, this is certainly an option.

Please note: We cannot accept any responsibility for injury or mishap while the coffin is in their care, so to cover this, we require a disclaimer to be signed by the bearers.


The final resting place

booksAfter cremation…
Ashes can be scattered within the Garden of Remembrance at the Crematorium, or Buried in your local Churchyard or Cemetery.

You may wish to scatter them somewhere special to you or your loved one.

The choice is yours, there is no need to rush into a decision as we will look after the ashes until you are ready.

We will remember them."
