Arranging a Funeral
When you mourn the loss of a loved one, often the shock of their passing and your grief may be very overwhelming, and you may need someone to be with you for support. We are here to help, you can call us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and we can arrange a time to meet and begin preparations for the service. We will help guide you through all the steps including any legal requirements. We will also coordinate the transfer of your loved one into our care.

Please don’t be overwhelmed with so many things to organise because we are here to help. On the day of the service we will do our very best to ensure everything comes together the way you had hoped.
