With all the disruption caused to families during the height of the pandemic and the pain that we all felt in not being able to provide our families with the services they deserved, we are delighted to announce that for us, things are moving back to what we can now refer to as some sense of ‘normality’
We can now allow up to 30 people to attend a funeral as opposed to the 6 we were allowed before, we can allow our limousine to be used again, most churches are allowing services and many reception venues are now back up and running! We can bring the doves and butterflies back, we can provide a full array of beautiful flowers, we can print your service sheets and we can even live stream your service and provide you with keepsake copies if needed! We’ve got it all covered. (All we can’t do is sing, but our crematoriums and churches have access to amazing music libraries so if we all have to ‘lip sync’ for a while then so be it)
We are SO pleased that we can offer our families as near to a ‘normal’ service as we can once again! As caring professionals it has broken our hearts to see some of the families we served have to endure funerals that were bare by comparison, and it pains us that so many families up and down the country had to go through such experiences, but we are now beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel and we are doing everything we can to ensure you can now get the service that you want for your loved one and to get it safely.
Your safety is still paramount to us, you can visit us at our office and we will provide masks for you if you wish to wear one, we have hand sanitiser for you, and our Reception Area, Arranging Room and Chapel of Rest are all thoroughly cleaned each time they are used. The Limousine is also cleaned after each use and again provided with masks and sanitizer for you and your family. We are happy to do face to face arranging again and happy for you to visit us at our office in Sackville Road if you wish. If you do not feel comfortable coming in to see us then that is also not a problem, we’ve got quite used to arranging funerals remotely (Zoom calls, or just telephone and email) recently so we will adapt to however you see fit.
Please continue to keep safe, we are not out of this by any means yet, but we will make your experience with us the safest and smoothest that we possibly can. Take Care out there, Richard, Ben, Zoe and Ray.
