Rest Rooms

We are particularly proud of this aspect of our service and know how important it is to our clients. We appreciate that visiting your loved one can be a difficult experience and it is likely to be a memory which stays with you for many years. We will do our utmost to make the visit as comforting as possible so that when you leave us you know your loved one is at rest and in the best possible care.

From the moment we bring your loved one into our care you can be assured we will treat them with the utmost respect and dignity.

We have large, fully equipped mortuary and preparation facilities where our trained technicians and embalmers will carry out all the necessary hygienic steps. If you wish to assist or view any stage of the preparation or if there are any cultural or religious reasons for this to be carried out by someone else, we are more than happy to arrange this.

We take great care in the preparation and care of your loved one. To help us ensure your loved one's presentation meets with your approval a recent phograph to assist us is always appreciated, likewise bringing in personal effects, such as glasses can make an important difference. We are able to provide quality handmade robes, or if you prefer, you may choose to have your loved one dressed in their own clothes.

Please note, although we employ professionally qualified embalmers, we do not embalm as a matter of course, so if you wish to discuss the benefits of this procedure please ask your funeral director.

Each of Our Rest Rooms are totally private and tastefully furnished in a secular peaceful style with all being air-conditioned. Because they are private you are welcome to visit as often as you wish, but we do ask that you make an appointment to ensure the privacy of others and yourself.
