Questions Families Ask.

Can their loved one wear their own clothes ?
Yes , everything they would normally wear.

Do you require a photo ?
Yes this will help us to see What they looked like for make-up and hair styles etc.

What music can we play ?
If the service is at the crematorium we only require the name of the music you wish to be played and we will organise the music for you.
If you require a service in one of the cemetery chapels you will have to supply the music you wish to be played on CD or a USB stick.
( the cd’s must be original artist not copies. )

Do we have to pay any deposits up front ?
