Our funeral providers believe that planning a funeral should not be a sombre, sorrowful occasion but an opportunity to reflect our personality, celebrate a well lived colourful life, our hobbies and interests. Every person is unique therefore every funeral should be too.
Our funeral providers will take the time to get to know you and your family and listen to what you want, they will work with you to design the perfect funeral service rather than sell you a choice of pre set packages. Our funeral providers will be open and honest with any questions you may have. They are passionate about providing a professional and personal service with reasonable and ethical prices to suit every budget.
From the moment we are born we celebrate the milestones in our lives…
Christenings, Birthday’s, Engagements, Weddings, Retirement and even Divorce! So why is it that we don’t plan our final party, the party that celebrates our life?
Our providers specialise in helping everyone plan for the future, regardless of age, whether you have a life limiting illness or not planning ‘to go any time soon’, if you would like to be organised they can offer you a personalised or a pre paid plan.
Simple personalised plans include; Living Will, Final Days and Funeral Wishes the plans take away any uncertainty or potential burden from family and friends. These documents make sure that there will be no misunderstandings, questions or arguments regarding what you would / would not have wanted to happen as you approach death or after your death.
The plans provide you with an opportunity to have your ‘final say’ and make sure that your final wishes are carried out exactly as you want.
You may choose a simple, beautiful, quiet low key affair, an unusual, themed, green or traditional funeral, whatever you choose they will make sure you depart in style!
Planning for the future
We all have thoughts in the back of our mind of how we would like to go when our time is finally here and the type of funeral we would like. But how many of us have taken the time to actually write it all down?
How often do you try to talk to your loved ones about how you’d like things to be, only to be told ‘don’t be so morbid’ or ‘you have years left yet?’ Would your family know what you really wanted if suddenly they were faced with making difficult decisions? Would they be filled with regret that they hadn’t taken the time to find out?
A Living Will
A living will is a statement expressing your views regarding various options for treatment, what you would or would not want if the situation arose whereby you could not communicate this for yourself. It shows that you have thought through and discussed the options with your loved ones.
This plan documents the ‘who, what and where’ and is used to help friends and relatives know how you would like to be treated when nearing your death. For example you may want to be at home, have music played or flowers in the room.
Divine Departures will work with you to ensure that your wishes are recorded so that loved ones can help support you through your final days within the surroundings you have requested.
Plenty of us put a lot of time and effort into organising, Birthday parties, Weddings and Christenings. So why is it that funerals are rarely planned in advance and generally organised in such a hurry with little thought given to what the deceased would have liked?
To ensure that your funeral is carried out in the style you wish, let us plan and document your funeral in detail. Our providers will make sure that the plan covers how you want everything to be from your choice of final outfit and the style of your coffin right down to the small details such as the colour of your socks and the shade of your lipstick!
By being fully involved in the planning of your funeral you can make sure your family and friends know exactly what you would like; cremation, burial, type of flowers, choice of music, and where and how to celebrate afterwards. They can ensure your funeral is everything you could have wished for and more.
Once you’re happy with the content, all three plans will be signed and witnessed. You will own the plans outright. They can arrange for the plan to be sent directly to your solicitor and/or executor or you could just simply put a copy in a drawer at home.
Let us help you make your wishes known, let’s make a plan…
