Just few of the details to be considered
• Type of Funeral & where the Service will be held
• Hearse & limousines for the day of the Funeral
• The choice of Coffin or Casket
• How to word a newspaper notice
• Religious, non religious or civil funeral
• Choice of music & poetry & flowers
• Donations, order of service & catering
Robson & Stephens will be pleased to help and advise on all of the above.
Coffin, flowers & tributes
We will help you plan the Funeral in relaxed and comfortable surroundings. Choosing a coffin is often one of the hardest aspects of arranging a Funeral.
Flowers at a Funeral can be a simple and beautiful way to create a personal tribute and might include bouquets, wreaths and sprays, through to coffin displays and specialist designs.
Whatever you feel would be an appropriate tribute can be created for you.
Press announcements, donations, service sheets
Robson & Stephens will organise the press announcements, we will work with you to compile wording for press announcements for both local and national newspapers if required. A Return of Thanks Notice acknowledgement, after the Funeral will also be placed thanking relatives & friends for their kind donations & support.
You may wish that only family flowers are sent to the Funeral and that donations are sent to the Charity of your choice. We collect donations on your behalf and provide a list of donors and the total amount given. We then ask the Charity to acknowledge receipt of this sum directly to the Next of Kin or Executor. We normally allow 4 to 6 weeks for collection of donations.
We recognise that many families like to have the hymns and order of service printed. This would show the name of the deceased, possibly a short text and other details you would like included. We arrange the printing of these, in consultation with the Officiating Minister.
