Types of funerals
Burials are the most popular form of funeral in Northern Ireland with a service at the funeral home or church with a family gathering afterwards. Cremations have grown in popularity in recent years with religious or non-religious services taking place at the funeral home, church or alternative venues.
If you are looking for something a bit different, unique and more personalised or less formal than a traditional service, we can support and guide you to create a farewell that is a true celebration of the life of your loved one.
Funerals are incredibly personal so everything will be built around your needs. Please do let us know if you have any special requests and we’ll do our best to help.
