As unique as the life lived.
We believe that a funeral should be a personal and special occasion, where you dictate what happens.
Everyone is different in their lives. This can and should be reflected in their funeral.
Whether you believe that a funeral with many traditional features is appropriate, or one that is considerably different, we hope the information on our website will assist in arranging a personal celebration of the life
of your loved one. This site will be continually updated when new ideas and items become available.
Any good funeral director should be able to provide all of the options available on this site.
You may find however, that some of the larger groups are unable to as they may not be allowed to purchase single items from any supplier as their head office does not have an agreement in place. Please see "Why use an independent funeral director?" to the right.
Also some of the national and multi-national groups "hide" behind the names of old family businesses.
Please be sure to check who you are actually entrusting to look after your loved one.
A list of funeral directors recommended by Charles Cowling's The Good Funeral Guide can be found here.

Save your family a lot of upset.........in less than 5 minutes!
It’s amazing to think that the majority of us leave it to our loved ones to “guess” what type of funeral we would have wanted!
You would not believe the stress and heartache that this can cause the ones we leave behind……during one of the most difficult times in their lives.
At Armstrongs we have lost count of the number of arguments, tears and the upset caused to families by having to make such huge decisions at this most difficult time.
It is always a good idea to talk about these issues with those who are closest to you and to make a written record of your preferences. It will reassure your family that you have thought about things carefully and give them confidence that they are acting in accordance with your wishes when making important decisions.
This can be done by simply taking 5 minutes and filling out a free Advance Wishes Form.
