What to expect of the day

On the Day of the Funeral

Throughout the entirety of the funeral process, we stand by your side, offering unwavering support and guidance every step of the way.


From the funeral procession to the committal service and wake, our dedicated team is here to ensure that every detail is handled with care and compassion.

Before the day of the funeral, our team will work closely with you to understand your wishes and preferences. Whether it's selecting a fitting tribute or fulfilling any final requests, we are committed to honouring your loved one's memory in a meaningful way.

On the day of the funeral, our Funeral Directors take charge of all necessary preparations to ensure a smooth and punctual service. Our fleet of luxury limousines stands ready to transport your family and friends, while your loved one is meticulously prepared according to your specifications before being transferred to one of our top-quality hearses. Any floral tributes, flowers, or portraits chosen for the funeral will be carefully placed inside the hearse.

As the funeral procession sets off, typically beginning from the residence of the deceased, our Funeral Directors meticulously oversee all routes and ensure an ample number of pallbearers are available to convey the coffin with utmost respect. Should you have any specific requests regarding the route or stops at significant landmarks, we strive to accommodate them to the best of our ability.

Upon arrival at the chosen venue, whether it be a church or crematorium, your Funeral Director will have meticulously arranged all aspects of the service, including any requested music and order of service sheets. They will liaise with the service conductor and chapel attendants to guarantee a seamless experience for you and your guests. Guiding you into the venue, our Funeral Director ensures that all attendees are comfortably seated before proceeding with the funeral service. Should you opt for a committal service at the same or a different location, depending on the choice of burial or cremation, your Funeral Director remains on hand to offer guidance and support.
