Comprehensive Funeral Planning
Direct Funeral service
A simple service where nobody will attend. We will transport the deceased from our funeral home to Stirling crematorium and collect their ashes once the cremation occurs.
Traditional Funeral Service
This can be either a cremation or burial at a time and venue of your choice with an officiant of your choice. Should a minister not be required, we can assist with a civil celebrant or humanist. We can travel anywhere in the country.
What do when a loved one dies
The time following a loved one's death can be very difficult. To help ease the burden, we are available through our office 24 hours a day to help or advise on all aspects of arranging the funeral service.
We will respectfully follow your instructions and give you all the information required.
On initial contact, we will arrange to bring your loved one to our funeral home, where we will care for them until the day of their funeral.
You and your family will be invited to our office, where we will tailor a funeral service to your exact requirements.
