FUNERAL      SERVICES

We offer unique opportunities to create healing moments after loss.

Arranging A Funeral Service

At Robson & Stephens we appreciate that Funeral Services have changed over the years and although traditional services are still popular, more and more people are choosing to personalise their own service in celebrating a truly unique life for their loved one.

We strongly believe that families should be given the opportunity to choose exactly how and where they want to celebrate the life of a loved one.

This may be through a poem, favourite piece of music, a picture coffin or even a motorcycle hearse or horse drawn carriage to take their loved one on their last journey.

ALL INCLUSIVE FUNERAL PACKAGE OPTIONS

No one wants to arrange a funeral at a time that is already difficult. Family pressures, grief, and indecision can all add to the stress of organising a funeral in the midst of grief. Even the sheer size of a funeral (often involving as many people as a wedding) is an overwhelming factor. It is understandable to feel out of control of the process and to experience difficulty in making decisions. With our various funeral service packages, we help you to arrange the perfect funeral with minimal effort for you. This way, we help you so you can spend more time with the people that need you most.

SERVING FAMILIES DURING COVID-19

Because we value the health and safety of the families we serve and that of our employees, we want to reassure our families and guests that Robson & Stephens continue to take unprecedented steps, to protect everyone that enters our doors in the face of the coronavirus threat, also known as COVID-19.

In addition to following Government Guidelines for lowering the transmission of the coronavirus, we are increasing our efforts by continuing to monitor all of our cleaning and disinfection efforts with increased emphasis on high use areas. 

Arrangements may now be made in person after a brief screening process over the phone with no concerns regarding COVID-19 transmission or exposure are indicated. If necessary, arrangements can be made over the phone and by email. If a family meets in person with any of our staff, all participants of the meeting will be required to wear a face covering and the number of individuals permitted in a meeting room may be limited.
