Learn more about our kind, thoughtful and flexible approach towards funerals
1. We won't tell you what you 'should' do
We don't believe there are any 'shoulds' where funerals are concerned.
A funeral can be whatever you want and need it to be. There are no rules.
2. We will give you the time you need
It might take some time, but we'll help you put together a funeral that truly reflects the life of the person who has died, whether that's something conventional or more unusual.
We're not part of a corporate chain so we don't work to strict timeframes. We're here whenever you need us.
3. We value the funeral service as a whole
We believe that every moment of arranging the funeral is important - including the first call you make, the way the person who has died is treated, and the ceremony itself.
4. We'll take good care of the person who has died
We'll collect the person who has died and bring them into our care where they'll be looked after in a brand new mortuary space with sensitivity, care and reverence by our professional and experienced team.
5. We'll be open and honest
We're working hard to change funerals for the better. That means we'll be transparent about everything that's happening, including how much it's going to cost.
We'll answer any questions you have about dying, death and funerals openly and honestly.
6. We won't charge the earth
We believe that a good funeral should be available to everyone so we offer an affordable service that is flexible to your needs. Our simple package covers all the essentials and then allows you to create the funeral you want and need.
7. We won't use funeral industry terminology
You'll never hear us calling the person who has died 'the deceased'. We'll use their name and treat them as a person.
We avoid using funeral industry terminology and try to explain our services as simply and clearly as we can.
“Jo and Louise helped me plan and prepare for my husband’s funeral. From the initial 2 hour home visit by Jo to the funeral itself, they were just wonderful. I felt supported and cared for throughout the process, and their suggestions for celebrant (Jane Morgan) and florist (The Fresh Flower Company) were perfect. No question was too small, and their ideas and guidance were excellent.
I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone who is unfortunately in this position – they will gently hold your hand and guide you from start to finish with love and sensitivity. Amazing women.”
