We are all facing many challenges regarding the way we currently live, work, play, and celebrate significant moments in our lives. Being able to farewell a loved one at a meaningful Funeral Service is fundamental to all people.  During these difficult times, we will help you create the Celebration or Service for your loved one in a manner that allows you to say goodbye but also complies with our current restrictions.  Please remember you are not alone, we are here for you.

 The health and safety of everyone attending a Funeral Service, including our staff and those required to conduct a Service is paramount to us.
We are taking every precaution possible to ensure this.  However,  we also need your help and​ co-operation by complying with the current restrictions.
