We will help you to arrange the official documents needed to go ahead with the funeral. These need to be done timeously so that the funeral can take place. Our funeral director will discuss your requirements with you thoroughly so that you know what options you have.

The death of a loved one is a troubling time for anyone. In Southport, funeral planning is our profession. We are proud of our ability to help the family and take away much of the stress. We relieve the relations and friends of the responsibility of dealing with the numerous tasks that need to be performed for a funeral. There is a choice to make between burial or cremation and whether to have a church service or a memorial in a hall. The cost of the funeral is one of the important details to clear up early in the proceedings as stress of debt is not conducive to grieving for a beloved family member.

Our funeral directors have many years of experience in arranging tasteful and dignified funerals. We can offer a traditional funeral with all the accoutrements or a modern, simple funeral with very little Victorian display. Cremations are normally fairly simple affairs and memorials can be as lavish or understated as you feel necessary. The funeral arrangements are made to satisfy the family of the deceased. It allows them to mourn the beloved family member and friend and know they have satisfied all of their wishes.
