As a result, we go the extra mile to deliver comprehensive services no matter how large or small. From intimate private affairs to more exuberant celebrations of life, we can provide everything needed to create the perfect farewell. In addition to organising obituaries and arranging the church or your non-religious venue of choice, we can carry out all the funeral arrangements in Looe, and the surrounding areas, including flowers, vehicles and more. Get in touch with our team today for support, advice and assistance.
Chapel Of Rest
Our chapel of rest is a peaceful and calming environment for family or friends of the deceased to come and pay their respects ahead of the funeral. You will require an appointment, so please give us a call if you would like to visit the chapel.
Embalming is a very personal choice and one that can only be made by the deceased or the next of kin. There are a number of reasons why someone may choose embalming, including:
- To allow more time for family and friends to visit the deceased
- So that those who live out of the area can visit the deceased
- When the funeral is not scheduled to take place immediately
- Personal choice of the next of kin, as well as cultural or religious beliefs
- If the funeral is taking place overseas, where embalming is compulsory
Flowers For A Funeral
If you want flowers for a funeral, we can make all the necessary arrangements. We can provide decorative floral arrangements to adorn the venue of the service or post service gathering. Furthermore, we can also accommodate bespoke requests for particular species of sentimental or emotional connection. In addition to floral arrangements we can also provide:
Floral tributes typically accompany the coffin in the hearse and during the service. They are often in the form of lettering or shapes and decorated to high standards, with flowers in colours or varieties of your choice for a personal touch. Following the service, you may wish to take the tributes to display at the memorial headstone or post service gathering.
We can provide flower cards for loved ones to share messages and memories. These can then be collected by our staff before the service and displayed in your floral tribute if you wish. Simply speak to a member of the team to discuss flower cards.
Putting your grief into words can be challenging. If you are overwhelmed with memories and emotions and are struggling to organise your thoughts, our specialists can help you with eulogy writing. We can sit with you and support you with getting your feelings down on paper. Alternatively, tell us what’s on your mind and we will do our best to write one on your behalf.
Funeral Order of Service
We can put the funeral order of service together for you, including any special photographs, hymns or song lyrics, poetry, biblical references, prayer recitals, messages of thanks and speakers. Moreover, this is also an opportunity to include instructions for mourners regarding the post service arrangements, charitable donations and any other requests.
Our funeral cars are maintained to the highest standard and kept pristine. We can provide a traditional hearse to transport the coffin to the service. Additionally, we can provide transportation for the deceased’s closest kin by car or limousine. Moreover, if you are looking for a personal touch, we also have access to more unique transport options.
Unique and alternative hearses are often used as a way to reflect the deceased’s interests and personality. There is no limit to what we can source, including:
- Horse-drawn hearses
- Motorcycle hearses
- Vintage vehicles
- Bicycle hearses
- Coloured hearses
- Themed hearses
- And more…
