First List of Actions
You do not need to have registered a death at the appropriate Registrars in order to begin making funeral arrangements with us.
From helping you to let people know about a funeral, to choosing a headstone or memorial plaque for a garden.
We can organise ‘Mourning Cards’ for posting to family and friends alerting them of your loss and details of the coming funeral; ‘Order of Service Cards’ for the day of the funeral; finally ‘Memorial Cards’ and ‘Thank You Cards’ for after the funeral.
We work with several local florists in Essex to create floral tributes for any funeral service – for the immediate family’s flowers and also on behalf of wider family and friends. You can order through us from examples and prices shown here.
