Funerals are an emotionally difficult thing for many people to have to plan and arrange. Ellsmore Funerals can be there to help you during this difficult time and take care of any funeral plans and arrangements you may have. Funerals are very final and an opportunity to goodbye to our loved ones in Shirley.
We are on hand to go through all of the options available and help to make sure that the funeral is personalised and carried out in accordance with yours and the deceased’s wishes and intentions.
There are several things to consider when planning the funeral service, such as the location of the burial and the transportation choice for the funeral vehicle.
You can come to our funeral home to make arrangements and ask all the questions you may have to our expert team on hand to help and support you. Shirley
We can arrange for burials or cremations depending on your choice. Cremations can cost much less than burials. Depending on your area and space availability in local cemeteries, the cost of burials can be very expensive so please consider this when making arrangements.
Funeral services can be held in local churches or chapels in cemeteries. We can also assist if you wish to have service conducted elsewhere.
When you speak to a funeral director about the funeral you will be asked a number of questions including, what sort of coffin you would like, whether you would like flowers, information on the life of the person you knew.
You may not wish to have any religious element in the funeral you are planning. We can help to arrange humanist services in Shirley, which have no religious theme.
The funeral ceremony itself will often include funeral music, hymns, prayers, poems and readings from family or close friends of the deceased.
We can also assist with helping you choose a casket, clothes for the deceased, transportation, flowers or charity donations, eulogy writing, invitations and booklet handouts.
