After the funeral

Your comments

It is very important to us that we provide the very best service possible for our clients, so following the funeral please feel free to let us know your views, whether they are complimentary or ways to improve our service, we really do value your opinion. If you were impressed with our service and to help reassure future clients please feel free to write a review on our google web page.

Acknowledgement Notices

An acknowledgement notice can be placed in the Bournemouth Daily Echo (or other paper/s of your choice) to thank the mourners for sending flowers, donations and sympathy cards and it is also an opportunity to thank the people who helped you most before and after the funeral. We will be happy to assist in creating and placing the acknowledgement notice for you.

Memorial Bench

We can recommend a company who make and engrave beautiful oak and teak memorial benches for your garden, we have one on display at our funeral home in Kinson.

Temporary Grave Markers

If required, we can place a temporary six month grave marker on the grave for use until the memorial is fixed.

Memorial Masonry

We can provide memorials for our local cemeteries and churchyards and we would be happy to advise you on local restrictions and regulations. You can choose the memorial from our brochure or we would be happy to prepare an estimate for one that you may have seen at the cemetery.

You would need to consider the shape and style of memorial, colour and type of material, colour and type of lettering, wording, how many further inscriptions would be required, if a design or stencil is required or if a flower vase is required, if so how many? We suggest allowing six months to elapse from the date of the funeral until the memorial is placed. Please be aware, that the memorial can take around 3 months from the date of order to completion.

Stopping unwanted post

You can register with a company to stop unwanted post addressed to your loved one being delivered by contacting the Bereavement Register.
