Funerals for Veterans
Military funerals honour those who fought and served for their country. It doesn’t matter if the deceased was on active duty or not, they are entitled to a full military funeral. Our staff have the knowledge and experience of organising military funerals.
Please note that we also waive our professional fees for Active Service Personnel Funerals.
You can select either a traditional cremation service or a traditional burial service for your loved one. Included within the standard services will also be the following:
The Standard Bearers will usually precede the coffin as a mark of respect to the deceased.
The honour guards are uniformed and sometimes form two lines around the coffin as it is being carried into the church or cemetery. Sometimes, they may also carry the coffin.
The Last Post
The Last Post is usually performed on a trumpet as the coffin is lowered into the ground or the crematorium curtain is drawn.

Funerals for the Police and Fire Service Personnel
We’ve also conducted funerals for those in the police and fire services. We recognise that these occasions give colleagues and friends the opportunity to respect and remember the deceased for the hard work they performed while on duty. We’re happy to organise a funeral which helps celebrate the deceased’s passion in their career.
