Evelyn's Funerals

Simple Cremation Funeral

 

When I am dead my dearest,
Sing no sad songs for me.
Christina Rossetti

We provide a simple and dignified funeral service, with a bespoke ceremony, on a day and time of your choosing.

After the doctor has issued the Medical Cause of Death Certificate, and when you are ready, we will collect the person who has died from hospital, carefully wrap their body in a soft cotton shroud, and take them to our mortuary facility.

You will usually register the death at the Register Office in the district where the death occurred.

Amanda will come and see you at home to talk everything through and complete all the necessary paperwork. You can choose the venue, day and time of the funeral service. Easthampstead Park Crematorium has a 24 hour online booking system so a booking can be made at your home there and then. (Please note that there will be disruptions to the service at Easthampstead Park during the summer of 2017 as the new second chapel is being built.)

You will have time to plan the ceremony content and music/slideshow choices yourselves, or discuss, liaise and agree the details with the person who will be creating the funeral ceremony for you.

On the morning of the funeral we gently place the body in a simple wood veneered coffin and take it to the crematorium before the funeral. The coffin will be placed in the crematorium chapel before you and your guests arrive.
