Religious, Civil & Humanist Officiants
Whether the officiant be of a religious or non-religious background, we work closely with them all to ensure that all the families we are supporting get the type of service they desire.
We have experience with all the denomination and faiths from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire areas and pride ourselves on helping meet the requirements of all cultures and faiths.
We also have a lot of experience with Civil and Humanist Celebrants. Civil services tend to contain a little or no religious content allowing for flexibility without having a full religious service. Humanist services are very similar to a civil service but they will not contain any religious views and so these can be well suited for a person who did not accepted religious views nor lived according to any.
Types of Coffins
We have a variety of coffins available including Traditional Style, Environmentally Friendly and Contemporary Designs.
Types of Vehicle
Traditional Style Hearse & Limousine
Our own hearse and limousine are based on a Mercedes Benz E class saloon. Both vehicles were purchased in 2017 before being
converted into these very well presented vehicles. As you can see from the pictures here. In January of 2018 we took delivery and use these as our main fleet vehicles for funerals.
Horse Drawn Hearse
We can supply a range of horse drawn carriages if that is what you are looking for. There are various different carriages to choose from depending on your preference and a selection of horses ranging in breed and colour. There is also the option to have outriders or rein lead horses.
If however you would like something a little bit more unique there are plenty of other vehicles that we can hire in. Vehicles such as a Classic Rolls Royce Hearse and Limousine or a Volkswagen Camper Van hearse, we can also get a Land Rover Defender hearse and limousine or a triumph motorcycle and side car hearse.
We work with all local florists to make sure any flowers that are ordered are on the funeral and well looked after. We do offer the choice of having the flowers added to the funeral account and can even do the ordering for you. This service is done in partnership with The Flower Room in Sandy, they have a team of lovely ladies who do the arranging and work very closely with us to make sure you get exactly what you are expecting.
We can offer a wide range of hand crafted keep sakes, ranging from the traditional to the unique. These can be a keep sake urn or a print taken of a loved one’s hand, foot or finger, (the prints can then either be kept in a paper form or be made into jewellery) or we offer a service where you can have some of the persons cremated remains or lock of hair placed inside a piece of jewellery. If any of these is something you would like to know more about then our staff will be able to help.
The service sheets we provide are completely customisable as we design and print them all in house, this gives us more time to get them designed how you would like and gives more flexibility in the design.
Chapel of Rest
We have a bright and open chapel of rest which gives families a space for them to come and spend some time with their loved ones. This space can be used for small services with seating for up to 20 people and further standing room and also offers air conditioning and a Bowers and Wilkins music system. This space allows for really intermit services and can bring down the funeral costs if followed by a direct cremation or burial.
We are more than happy to collect donations in memory of a loved one, this can be done on the day of the service via our donation box or online via our website. We normally leave the donation account open for approximately five weeks before it is closed and then sent on to the specified charity. When we send the donation to the charity, we also send the family a letter confirming the total amount that has been collected and the names of peoples who have donated, if given. We do not charge any extra for this service, nor do we take a percentage of the donations collected via our donation box on the day. Unfortunately there is a 5% administration fee for online donations, we are looking into ways of having this fee removed.
