Types of funeral can vary from the traditional to the modern (including eco-friendly). We provide all of the services that you would expect from a Funeral Director (or Undertaker), and also some you may not be familiar with.

Our role is to coordinate all the things that need to be done when someone dies. Also we see it as our duty to help you understand what needs to happen as the funeral draws near.
