Flowers and Floral Tributes

Floral tributes to your loved one most commonly adorn the Funeral Vehicle and the Coffin and sometimes the Funeral Home. Flowers are a traditional way of expressing sympathy and grief and floral displays are a simple and beautiful way of celebrating a life and showing support during the funeral.

Most florists will offer a selection of standard floral displays and many people are happy to be guided by their florist and choose from their range. Others like to create a personal, bespoke tribute by selecting styles, flowers and colours with their florist. Floral tributes can take many forms and both your florist and your Funeral Director will be able to give help and advice with this.

It is recommended that you have the flowers delivered to the office of your Funeral Director on the morning of the funeral and the director’s staff will display them suitably in the hearse for you.

Once at the funeral the flowers will be moved to a location in the gardens designated for you. Your Funeral Director will guide you and your guests to this spot when he leads you from the service. This is a space where you can gather, see the flowers and read the cards and take time to reflect after the Funeral.

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.

Dear Nathan,

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the caring way you helped me plan my beautiful mum’s funeral. As it is a time of terrible loss and sadness I cannot think of anyone else who could have made it more bearable. Thank you so much and God Bless you.
