Types of funerals
Burials are the most popular form of funeral in Northern Ireland with a service at the funeral home or church with a family gathering afterwards. Cremations have grown in popularity in recent years with religious or non-religious services taking place at the funeral home, church or alternative venues.
If you are looking for something a bit different, unique and more personalised or less formal than a traditional service, we can support and guide you to create a farewell that is a true celebration of the life of your loved one.
