The Stages of The Journey
The process of arranging a funeral can be a daunting and emotional one and in order to help you find the information you need during this difficult time, we have broken up The Funeral Journey into 5 key stages. Each stage is designed to provide important and relevant information when you need it most.
Remember that no matter what stage of the journey you are in, our team of dedicated and understanding professionals are here 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to guide and support you in any way we can.
While no-one wants to think about their death, pre-planning your funeral gives you the peace of mind to know that when the time comes, your family will be guided with professional support, providing a much-needed sense of comfort.
Time Of Death
Few of us are prepared when a death occurs and we often need support and assistance both at the initial time of death and throughout the funeral planning process, as well as continued support as we come to terms with the loss.
The Funeral Arrangement
A funeral service is the customary way to recognise death and allows us to honour and show respect for the dead as well as to help those left behind begin the process of grief recovery.
The Funeral Service
A funeral ceremony helps to publicly acknowledge the reality of the death, and when shared with friends and family it encourages the expression of grief.
After The Funeral
Grief is a natural response to loss. It’s important to remember that grief and mourning is a process and not an event.
