The funeral service that caters for everyone’s needs

Cremation

Cremation is where the body of someone who has passed is burned and the ashes remain. When someone is cremated, the ashes are passed onto close friends or family who will then be able to choose what they wish to do with the ashes.

There are many different options for what to do with the ashes of a loved one, from keeping them in a traditional urn, spreading them in nature, creating jewellery or even incorporating them within art or a tattoo. There are lots of ways to have your loved one with you after their cremation. 

If you choose to have a cremation, the Funeral Director will arrange for the necessary forms to be completed and signed by yourself. The doctor who attended the deceased during their illness will need to sign a Form 4, and a second doctor will have to sign a Form 5, which will either be done at the hospital, or arranged by the Funeral Director. 

A fee is payable for these and will be paid on your behalf by the Funeral Director. In the case of a coroner’s post-mortem, the Forms 4 and 5 are not required. 

Most cremations will have a chapel service, but if you prefer you can have a service in a church first and then follow on to the crematorium.

Burial

Burial is where the body of the deceased is interred into the ground, a tomb or a mausoleum after the funeral service. Sometimes religion means that burial is the only option, however there are some people who still prefer to have a burial over a cremation.

When a burial is carried out, you will likely have a gravestone or tombstone which signifies the resting place of the individual, and some family members and friends will visit the graveside to remember their loved one. Burial is an option for those who wish to be buried with their partner or family or who have a plot that they have previously chosen. 

When you have a burial, you can either have a service at the church or by the graveside beforehand if you would like. If you have an existing grave, we will need the deeds to the grave, or some documents relating to the grave. If you do not have either of these we will help you. If you do not have an existing grave we will arrange the purchase of a new one with you.

We will discuss your options and costs with you when making arrangements, including; purchasing a new grave, opening an existing grave, or the removal and replacement of an existing memorial. 

Whatever your choice of funeral the Funeral Director will make all the necessary arrangements on your behalf.

Dear Mr Alan Greenwood, I cannot thank you and your team in Bookham enough, for the excellent service they provided in every respect in the Cremation of my wife.

Your resident Funeral Consultant Mary fully explained all we needed to understand and advised the options available to us.

Her in depth knowledge of all the service providers including, Order of Service, authors and print selection, Celebrant, Hall and refreshments.

So many things which without her I would have been lost.

In the past few days I have received so very many complements and praise for the service you gave.

Do please allow other potential clients to share our experience.

Yours sincerely

“Thank you very much indeed for all your professionalism, support and guidance throughout the whole process involved in caring for my mother.

From the moment we met the staff at Holmwood Nursing Home until my collection of thank you notelets for my father to use I felt that everything was conducted in a most efficient and sensitive manner. I know that Clive spent a good deal of time with you and I was so pleased that we were able to have such a beautiful service very soon after the passing of our dear mother and wife. With thanks once again”

Jane Reg & Clive

“Just a note to say a huge thank you to yourself and the wonderful team at Send Greenwoods, they took care of us all yesterday at Les Ingram’s funeral. I’ve really valued your help and support over the last few weeks and the wonderful men yesterday went beyond their ‘call of duty’. They were certainly there at our great time of need. Please pass on my thanks to everyone. I also enclose four more donations. Many thanks again.”

“Just a wee note to say a huge thank you for your amazing support, care and friendship when helping us to arrange my dad’s funeral. Although it was such a difficult time for us as a family, you ensured that we were so well looked after & that everything went perfectly. Our tears often turned to laughter in your company & that’s because you helped us remember the good times.

Thank you for everything from the bottom of our hearts. We would also like to thank the whole team involved in helping before, during and after my dad’s funeral. You truly are amazing, showing such dignity, compassion, care and professionalism. Thank you.”

Karen, Anna & family

“Dear Fran

I just wanted to drop you an email to thank you for all your care and support in the arrangements for my dad, John.

I know that my Mum, Valerie, was most grateful for your support and care, particularly last Friday which was a difficult day for her. Mum said to me that you went over and above in her eyes, making sure she was ok before you would let her leave.

Dad would have highly approved of the day yesterday, and that’s all we could have asked for. It really was the celebration of his life that he would have wanted.

Again, my sincerest thanks and gratitude to you all.”

Helena

“To all that it concerns, thank you seems hardly enough for making our Pops (William Hadaway) day very special with love and dignity from the beginning to the end you all made the day very special as well as his wishes you were there for all the family and made it a bit easier for us all to handle, couldn’t have wished for anything more. Many thanks again.”

Mark Hadaway & family
