Services For Your Every Requirement
Judith will meet you in the comfort and convenience of your own home to discuss the funeral you need to arrange. You will be provided with comprehensive information to guide the decisions you want to make and we will endeavour to ensure that you are do not feel overwhelmed by all the details.
You will be kept informed on the progress of all the arrangements and advised at every step of the way. We are available to respond to your queries as they arise, recognising that this may be in the evening or at weekends.
We will collect the person who has died (within 30 mile radius of Horsham) and care for them until the date of the funeral.
We will co-ordinate the completion of all the necessary paperwork for burial or cremation and ensure that these are delivered accordingly.
On the day of the funeral, we will transport the coffin in our modern vehicle and provide staff to carry the coffin.
