The choice for many families is a traditional Oak Veneered Coffin.  We have a large selection to choose from.  We are able to supply Solid Oak and American-style caskets.  We are here to guide you in choosing the right coffin for your loved one.  An alternative option is the hand-crafted Willow Coffin and other natural alternatives such as Bamboo.


We provide a traditional hearse for the dignified final journey of your loved one.  Some families choose to a horse-drawn hearse at a reasonable cost, which we can organise as part of your funeral arrangements.


Choosing a Coffin

Our dedicated private Chapel on our premises provides a quiet and peaceful environment for you and your loved one.

Chapel of Rest

We can help to organise caterers who will provide their services at a reception, whether at home or in a hired venue.  There are social clubs, pubs, restaurants and hotels, which can be set up as a suitable venue.  We will provide your recommendations to them once we understand what is required.




Music can give the funeral a very personal feeling to say your goodbye to one you loved. Whether it be a choice of hymns or music to enter, exit or during; the service, church, chapel or local crematorium, we will advise and deal with every aspect of your music selections, including the provision of an organist if required.



We can help families write an obituary and deal with their choice of local or national publication.  We will always send a proof for the family to see before going to print.


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



Following the burial of a loved one, looking for the right Memorial is an important decision.
