We can help write an appropriate obituary and deal with your choice of publication.

We are here to take some of the stress away from such a difficult time. We will arrange and manage every aspect of the funeral.


Music can give the funeral a very personal feel. Whether if be a choice of hymns, or the music to enter and exit the venue or church, we will deal with every aspect of your music selections, including the provision of an organist.


We can help to point you in the direction of caterers who will provide their services at a reception, whether at home or in a hired venue.

Alternatively there are many clubs, pubs, restaurants and hotels that are set up to hold these occasions and we will be able to provide you recommendations once we understand what is appropriate.
