Choosing A Location

Choosing the right location for the cremation service is a big decision and there are some key factors to consider. Think about where the majority of family and friends are based and choose a location which is in travelling distance of everyone. Consider any religious or cultural traditions and incorporate this into the service. It is also important to honour any requests that your loved one made.

How To Choose A Loved Ones Final Resting Place

When you choose to have a loved one cremated, you must decide upon a final resting place for their ashes. There are many different options to choose from, allowing you and your family to work out what will be best.

You may wish to scatter the ashes in a special and significant place. Alternatively, you may want to bury the ashes to create a visiting place.

Other options including keeping the ashes or dividing them among the family. We recommend that you decide what you wish to do with the ashes before the funeral, as it can be a difficult decision to make.
