Type of service
Deciding what type of service you prefer is important. Traditional burials and cremations are still the most popular choice for laying a loved one to rest. Contact a funeral director
for advice and guidance on how to personalise these services.
If the person who passed away was religious, having a faith-based service might have been important to them. In these cases, requesting a clergy member or priest to officiate the service might be most appropriate. In addition, each religious group will have their own traditions and customs for memorialising a death, and it’s important to take these into account when planning.
In our experience, eco-friendly or green services are steadily gaining popularity. Families who choose these services opt for a sustainable casket or shroud, forgo the embalming process, dress their loved ones in biodegradable clothing, and arrange the burial in a natural burial site within one of our memorial parks.
Saying goodbye to a loved one can be a complicated process filled with sombre emotions. That’s totally normal, but you might choose to alleviate some of the sadness by choosing to celebrate the positive impact the deceased brought about during their life with a party or gathering. Gather close friends and family to share positive stories and music in the spirit of their memory.
