Fisherman's Ashes

Bear my ashes when I die

Far from men and let them lie,

By a salmon river.

Where the larches troop their ranks

And about the river banks

Silver Birches shiver.


Stay not stranger, passing by

For decorous lament or sigh

Where I rest beside you.

Go my brother, cast your line,

With a craft that once was mine

And good luck be tide you.


Here, who knows, I still may ply

O'er the stream a phantom fly

For a midnight capture.

And if Heaven attend my wish

Bring to bank a ghostly fish

In a ghostly rapture.

    Why use an independent funeral director?

    The independent funeral profession has a long and proud history of providing a personal, caring service to local communities.

    Single minded devotion

    With an Independent Funeral Service all of their attention is concentrated on satisfying the needs of the family. They are not distracted or bound by corporate rules handed down from head office. They are flexible and responsive to your needs.

    Devoted to families,
    not profits
