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.

Single photo on screen through service – £15
Family supplied video – £20
Simple slideshow up to 25 pictures – £50
Professional photo tribute set to music – £85

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

Nathan, Jeremy and the Penrose Team,

​My wife, myself and our family would like to say a heartfelt thank you for the wonderful service we received from Penrose. We could not have asked for kinder or more helpful people and certainly everyone who attended David’s funeral gave high praise indeed to the whole event.​

I cannot recommend Penrose highly enough on the amazing service provided and wish you all the very best in the future.
