What is a personalised / bespoke funeral?

A traditional funeral service generally follows this structure:

  • Viewing: A period during which the family can visit the person who has died at the funeral home.

  • A service: A funeral service held in a place of worship, funeral home, crematorium or at the graveside. This includes any further ceremonies (dependent on religion).

  • Burial or cremation: Following the service, the burial or cremation will occur. In the case of burial, friends and family may go in procession to the cemetery. Hire of a hearse and limousine(s) to follow in procession is normally included in a traditional funeral.

  • The wake: A reception held after the funeral, where the bereaved / mourners can congregate and remember the individual who has passed.
