All of these can help to convey the message you want to portray in the Funeral Service, making the service as personal or as traditional, as you wish - we always say, 'there are no rules to play by'.

The person who leads the service will also help you to put the Order of Service together, which in turn we can help with printing.

An Order of Service will serve two purposes, on the day of the Funeral Service it will be a helpful guide to how the service will run and allow your family to ensure they have everything in one place. Secondly, after the Funeral Service it will become a memorial keepsake to the person who has died, we hear from families how they keep and cherish the order of service for years to come.

With many Crematorium Chapels including our local Crematorium at Taunton Deane, we are able to help with personal tributes by the use of photographs or video to create a memorable visual tribute.

Services can also be webcast to friends and relatives across the world, who may not be able to make the journey to attend the service in person. A recording of the service can also be made and placed on a DVD disk or memory stick for you to keep.

Please ask us for further details and any additional costs involved.
