Distinguished Option: Cremation with a Funeral Service
In the past, funerals concentrated on a religious service but as society has changed so has the way the bereaved wish to mourn. Therefore, a contemporary funeral is usually a celebration of a loved one’s life.
Our “Cremation With a Funeral” is designed to reflect these preferences. This helps make the service more personal while still allowing for any religious content required. The one hour time slot, with distinguished service in a beautiful setting make all of this possible. However, by not engaging many traditional aspects of a funeral service – such as hearses and limousines – the price can offer savings of over £1,400 compared to traditional funerals.
Distinguished Option: What’s Included?
Our Distinguished Option offers cremation on a day of your choice. We will collect the deceased in a suitable vehicle from the place of death and cover all third-party costs. The service time slot is one hour, including arrival and departure and can be conducted by a Celebrant Minister that is supplied by us or a £100.00 contribution can be made by us to a Minister of your choice. Attendance is unlimited. Additional services are included in the price such as visual tribute screens and video casting so loved ones who can’t be there can still ‘attend the service’ of your loved one. The cremated remains will be supplied in suitable packaging to be collected from the facility, so you and your family can dignify your loved one according to their final wishes.
