For guidance, a funeral service is normally held about 3 to 7 days after the death has occurred, but this is obviously dependent on how soon the cause of death is confirmed and the availability of the Church, Crematorium or Cemetery required.
We will endeavour to arrange the funeral to meet your requirements as much as possible, so providing the documentation and registration can be completed, we can organise a funeral within 3 days if the situation demands. Similarly, if the funeral date needs to be withheld until a close relative return from abroad, we are happy to oblige with this request.
If a particular minister or other person is requested to officiate at the ceremony, then they will need to be consulted about the date and time too.
Finally, consideration should be given to the travelling times of relatives and friends who live away from this area. A service around lunchtime could assist those who must travel some distance.
