The choice of the right funeral director  is one of the most important decisions you will make. The  family's most important possession is being entrusted to the care of the funeral director of your choice. This as a sacred responsibility.

  5. After funeral procedures


The funeral can only be done once, any mistakes or problems on the day of the service will stay in with you for many years. After 50 years experience we know the things that can go wrong. Today there are so many funeral homes that have commenced in the last few years, some operated by people with little or no experience. Please consider all the choices available before you make any final decision on who with be given the most important of roles in life.

Some of the key things you should consider are:

The arrangement conference is the first step in the planning of a funeral service for your family member or loved one. The conference can take plan in both the comfort and privacy of your home or at one of our offices. It is important that as many of the family and friends who are involved in the decision making process are present as possible, however we also understand that in today’s world people are spread out.
