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.

Personal Tributes

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.

Doves
Personal Tributes

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, BlueRay 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 – £40
Webcast plus 28 days – £60
Webcast Recording – £70
Copies – DVD/BlueRay/USB – £15 each

To Nathan and all at Penrose, I just wanted to thank you for the sensitivity, care and respect you showed my Grannie yesterday. She looked amazing and I’m sure you caught a glimpse of her incredible 100 years as my dad spoke at the grave-side. You don’t have an easy job but I hope you know how grateful people are that you do it so well.

Your manner and conduct was gentle, considerate and supportive, thank you for all you did to make yesterday so special. You have been given the gifting and attitude needed to help bring peace and blessing during difficult circumstances. May you know God’s peace and blessing as you continue to serve others in this way, Thank you
