We consider our approach to families who have lost loved ones as sympathetic and professional – unique in their dynamics, beliefs and requirements.

Our efficient staff at First Avenue will assist the family from the first phone call after death until the funeral has taken place, and are always at hand to answer any questions. Once we have an understanding as to whether it is a burial or cremation that the family require we go through all the arrangements with them.

  • We offer a selection of coffins on view at our premises
  • We have an excellent florist and are able to provide beautiful arrangements for the coffin and the church
  • Hymn Sheets are designed in conjunction with the family with a photo of the loved one or we have our ‘in house’
    hymn sheets for those who do not want a photo
  • We put death and funeral notices into newspapers as requested
  • We make payments on behalf of the family to:
    • Minister
    • Organist
    • Verger
    • Sound Engineer (if required)

  • We also arrange for the family to view their loved one should this be required
