When a loved one passes away, we are at a complete loss and so much must be organised when we really are not feeling totally together.
The final goodbye must be fitting and totally unique to you, the family and more importantly your loved one. We will honour them & give Thanks for their life on earth and for a few brief moments share in the special memories that have been created along the way.
It would be an honour to create a beautiful and totally bespoke ceremony that hopefully will inspire & bring comfort during the following days.
The ceremony may include favourite songs, prayers & readings, or equally be as simple & uncomplicated as you wish. A eulogy (Tribute) would be included which we can write for you with your help & memories that you share with us, or if you or a family member or friend wishes to write & deliver this at the ceremony then we would encourage this personal element.
We are here to help at this difficult time, bring comfort when needed, but we feel of most significance to bring your loved ones memory alive in the most meaningful, respectful and personal way with sincerity & love.
Scattering of ashes ceremony
Where to begin?
Tea! We always begin everything with a cuppa & a chat, this can be in the comfort of your own home, or your loved one’s surroundings or even our home, whichever is best for you & you feel more comfortable with. Also, this can be arranged at a convenient time (evenings & weekend times can be arranged). Please do give us a ring & we can travel this journey together.
Creating the service
You may like your loved one to be accompanied by a favourite piece if music as they make their final entrance.
We will begin the ceremony with a few opening words (and a hymn IF required- but not necessary).
Poems & readings will be used throughout the services which may be given by ourselves or by family or family friends.
A eulogy or tribute is usually included within the service whereby your loved one is honoured & their life on earth celebrated. This again can be presented by ourselves or for a more personal touch a family member or friend may like to do this if they feel able to do so.
A few quiet moments of reflection may also be included within the service.
The committal is then given where we wish your loved one a safe journey onwards.
A final poem or reading will bring the ceremony to a close.
A special piece of music may then be played (if required) to close the service as everyone retires.
Our services are usually booked by the Funeral Director and will be included on their final invoice and paid to us directly by them.
