By the time the day of the funeral arrives all details regarding the service and arrangements will be finalised. So there will be nothing left for you to worry about, you can concentrate on the day ahead.
It will have been decided where you want the funeral procession to begin from, typically this will be from the home of the person who has sadly passed away, though you may choose a different location. We will arrive at an agreed time allowing you to be able to view any floral tributes before leaving for the service.
All family and friends who are travelling in the funeral cars will need to arrive to the agreed location where the procession will start.
If guests want to follow the funeral procession they are also welcome to start from here.
Once everyone is ready to leave and are seated comfortably in our chauffeur driven limousines the journey will begin, passing by any special meaningful landmarks that have been requested to be driven by.
Our lady funeral director often leads the cortege on foot for a short distance before getting into the hearse. Upon arrival at the chosen location they will lead the cortege once more.
Once at the church or crematorium the funeral director will lead you into the building, walking either in front or behind the coffin.
A sufficient amount of pallbearers will escort the coffin with dignity and respect. If it was decided that you wanted family and friends to pall bear they will be informed what they need to do.
Once all of the guests have arrived the service will begin. Traditionally close family will sit on the first few rows in the venue.
The order of the funeral ceremony is completely unique to every family.
Once the service has come to an end we will show you over to the area where flowers and floral tributes may have been laid. You will then be escorted to the next destination whether this be a committal service or a wake.
Your funeral director will be nearby from start to end, so any questions or concerns you may have, just ask. That is what we are here for.
