  5. Whilst it is not mandatory, we do recommend the services of a Funeral Director as it takes a lot of the stress and worry off you during this difficult period. They all have their own charging structure and you will need to take this into consideration too. We have prepared here
    a list of Local Funeral Directors that can help.
  6. Coffins, urns, shrouds, caskets - whatever you prefer to use, must be environmentally friendly. This does not mean you need to compromise on quality as you can see from these
    Eco-friendly Coffin and Urn examples. You can contact the manufactures direct or discuss supply via your Funeral Director.
