There are many ways of creating memorials, events and tributes for someone you love. We cannot begin to list the plethora of possibilities, but here are a few of the more usual choices. If you have other ideas please do not hesitate to ask us and we will find a solution for you.

black and blue order of service design

An Order of Service not only leads mourners through the service, the eulogies, hymns and readings, it is also a special keepsake and a very real memory both of the occasion and of the deceased. At Penrose we have designed a number of elegant service sheets ranging from traditional to modern which can be fully personalised to your requirements by our in-house designers. You provide the photos, we will do the rest. Please click here to see designs and prices.

Symbolising a spirit set free, the release of a white dove or doves is a time honoured tradition in many cultures. Our doves are professionally trained and cared for guaranteeing both a beautiful moment for you and a safe return home for the doves.

1 Dove – £90
Each extra dove – £10 each

It is possible to have the service webcast for people who cannot make it on the day and this can be made available for up to 28 days after the service. It can also be arranged to have the webcast recorded and made available on DVD, Blue-Ray or USB. A webcast is a single camera view of the chapel from the back with a view of the speaker and the coffin and with all sound recorded.

Webcast plus 28 days – £77
Recording including one DVD, Blue-ray or USB – £88
Extra Copies – DVD, Blue-Ray, USB – £15 each

Nathan and Jeremy, Thank you so much for waiting for me tonight, I really appreciate it. I’m so pleased I got there to see mum, she looks lovely and looks like she’s just having a lovely sleep. I love that she is holding all the photos and roses close to her, that is a lovely touch, thank you. I will most definitely be recommending your services.

Good morning Jeremy

A big thank you to you and your team for yesterday, the day went like clockwork (apart from my father in law following the wrong limousine out of the crematorium which raised a few laughs at the wake)

I just wanted you to know how grateful my whole family were, from the first call to the last handshake you were professional and caring and my mum in particular was very happy with the day.
Please pass on my thanks to your staff.
Kind Regards
Mark Steadman - Feb 28th 2020
