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.

Flowers

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.

Dear all,

We would like to thank you for all the care and attention you gave towards our relative Eva Wright recently. You were all most respectful at all times and we greatly appreciated your help before, during and after the funeral. We are also very impressed with the quality of the recordings of the service and in these times it will be greatly valued by the family and friends.

Thank you once again

Sally and Andy on behalf of Steven Wright and family - October 2020

I really can’t thank the team at Penrose enough for the beautiful funeral they managed for my dear husband Fred. Especially Nathan for helping us plan the day with such care and dignity.

I met Nathan’s dad Jeremy for the first time when he arrived with the cortege to collect us from home. Immediately I felt totally at ease with this charming charismatic gentleman leading the service perfectly from begining to end.

Thank you so much

from Georgie

My dear Helen’s celebrant recommended that we use Penrose Funerals for her ceremony. Jeremy and Nathan were kind, professional and respectful in every way. It was a great recommendation and I would not hesitate to recommend this family firm to all who need sensitive reassurance at a difficult time.
