The team continue to provide the same professional and personal Care and service as we always have, and it remains at the heart of all we do. Our experienced staff will guide you through every aspect of your funeral arranging with kindness, compassion and professionalism.

Our services

With two packages available, we will be able to arrange the funeral you have in mind for your loved one.

If you’re looking for a traditional or contemporary funeral with a service, you should consider our Attended Funeral. If you want us to arrange a simple cremation without mourners present, our Unattended Funeral may better suit your needs.
