Why do we use a butterfly as our emblem?
On all our stationary you will find a red butterfly. We are asked many times 'why choose a butterfly, Here is our answer: Firstly the beautiful butterfly with the power of flight, emerging from an apparently lifeless cocoon is a perfect symbol of life after death. In Christianity the butterfly has long been a symbol of resurrection.
Ancient Greeks considered butterflies to be the souls of those who have passed away. It is also considered a symbol of hope in many cultures.

Repatriation should death occur away from home/abroad
As each funeral we take care of is unique to each family, prices vary considerably. We provide a 'Simple Funeral Service' for families who do not wish to have extra services or may need to keep in line with a budget. We would be glad to give you an estimate of funeral costs over the phone. We are confident that our prices are fair and our services exceptional. As your funeral directors, we look after all aspects of arranging and conducting the funeral in accordance with you and your loved one's wishes. The only thing we can't do for you is register the death this has to be done by the deceased's representative by law. We can advise you on this, make an appointment at the Registrars Office for you and provide transport should you need it. Everything else we can take care of on your behalf.
We use a modern fleet of vehicles, brand new Volvo S80's Hearse and Limousines. All the funeral vehicles are maintained and chauffeured to a high standard so you can rest assured that we provide the best fleets of vehicles and staff in the area. We also provide a Horse Drawn Hearse with either black, or white horses and carriage. They can be draped in different colours to suit your loved one. For example a lady could have white horse and carriage with pink plumes and drapes, or have drapes with a person's favourite football team. We can also provide the Motorbike Hearse for something different.
