Planning a funeral requires a great deal of decision making. If the deceased has a funeral plan in place, some of the planning responsibility may already be taken care of. Otherwise, you will need to decide on the type of funeral, transportation options, your preferred venue as well as the date, time and finer details. Our caring staff at Park Funeral Directors are experienced in arranging respectful and dignified funeral services. The wishes of the deceased and their families are our top priority, so we endeavour to meet your wishes wherever possible. We will listen carefully to your plans and discuss the range of products and services available to you. Not to mention, we provide honest pricing, written quotations, and always look to provide you with the most practical option for your budget. So, for reliable and compassionate funeral planning services, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
There is much to think about when arranging a funeral and we can assist you with making arrangements. Alternatively, you may prefer for us to take care of everything on your behalf, in line with your preferences, during this difficult time. Some of the aspects of funeral arranging that will require your consideration include:
Deciding between a burial or cremation is a very personal choice. If the wishes of the deceased were not made known prior to passing away, the decision will often be made by their next of kin. Park Funeral Directors can secure your burial location or book your chosen crematorium in preparation for the funeral. You are welcome to call and discuss the process with our staff who can help you make an informed decision.
We can arrange both religious and non-religious ceremonies, including for people of all faiths. Our focus is on ensuring your loved one receives a fitting send-off that upholds their values and respects their beliefs. Thus, we cater for all cultures and traditions. We can book appropriate venues as well as source a variety of specialist services and products to ensure the service is as you wish.
Funeral stationery includes song sheets, funeral order of service, eulogies, flower cards, attendance, announcements and thank you cards, keepsake boxes and books, memory boxes and similar items. Park Funeral Service can produce quality, printed stationery in line with your order of service.
Your loved one may have chosen a charitable cause to support following their passing. Alternatively, you may wish to select a cause, club or service that was important to them during life. Common choices include their direct care providers, emergency services, research funding or clubs or industries the deceased was active within. We will oversee, manage and process any charitable donations and ensure they reach the intended cause on your behalf.
Pre and post-funeral gatherings, also referred to as wakes or memorials, are an opportunity to celebrate the life of loved ones in a more relaxed manner. Often a space to share memories and stories, these gatherings can be held at home or in a venue of your choosing. We can offer support and advice with planning any commemorative services, so feel free to contact our experienced team for assistance.
