Supporting your journey
We understand that having to cope with making funeral arrangements can seem a daunting and stressful prospect. Indeed, it may feel like the very last thing you want to have to deal with when enduring the most difficult and emotionally intense experience of bereavement. That’s why we make sure that we are here for you, every step of the way and take pride in making sure we give you the highest standards of care, commitment and service.
Our role as the funeral director is to put together precisely the funeral that you wish to arrange. Our guarantee to you is that if your request is within the bounds of possibility, and legal, we will provide it.
For more information on the various services that we can provide, please feel free to call one of our funeral homes who will be happy to discuss the options with you. To find your nearest C.P.J. Field & Co. funeral home, please follow the link at the top right hand corner of your screen.
Cremation can be combined with a funeral service beforehand, or a memorial service following the committal. However many people opt to hold the entire funeral at the Crematorium. Following the cremation, the ashes will be returned to you in order to inter them or scatter them in accordance with the wishes of the person that has died. We can assist in this decision. If you do not wish for the ashes to be returned to you, then arrangements can be made for interment or scattering in the grounds of the Crematorium
Burial is sometimes seen as an 'expensive choice' given the shortage of space in built up areas, burial remains a favoured option by many. Funeral services can take place prior to committal at the graveside, or a memorial service can be held immediately following - dependant on your wishes.
There are an increasing number of options available including a variety of vehicle forms, to woodland burials conducted with the environment in mind, please view our page on Alternatives for more details.
