The funeral service is a way of saying goodbye to someone who has passed away. We are here to take you through the decisions you need to make to ensure you can arrange a personalised funeral, cremation or memorial service you want for your loved one.




Arranging a Funeral


When arranging a funeral for a loved one, there are many things to be considered, especially when service has not been pre-planned or pre-paid. Everyone is different, and the factors which influence the final choice of ceremony will differ. These may consist of religious, cultural and personal preferences. There are several things to consider, such as whether the deceased left any instructions about the type of the ceremony they would want (for example religious, civil or humanist), whether or not they want to be buried or cremated, and any other personal requests such as venue or music. If a funeral has not been pre-planned, you will need to discuss the available options and services with your funeral director, who can advise and inform you of your choices.



 At Funeral Arrangement, Tony Clarke funeral director will provide you with a written estimate of the funeral arrangement costs, and a copy of this document will be given to you immediately. You are advised to inform the funeral director of your personal circumstances, as you may be eligible for financial help from different sources to help you for costs for the funeral.
