The Essentials

This option provides the transfer of your loved one into our care, preparation and cremation.


Family & Friends

A Gathering

A simple, dignified funeral service and viewing at our chapel, followed by a cremation.



Caring funeral services

from the simplest of cremations to full funeral services.

When a loved one has passed away, managing the practical necessities of what to do next should be the last thing on your mind. We understand, and that is why we are here to help you and your family through a difficult time by relieving stress and letting you focus on memories.

We offer three funeral options, which allow you the flexibility of choice along with the certainty of price.
