A dual service consists of a service located either in a church, one of our chapels, or another suitable location, which is then followed by the procession to the final resting place at the cemetery or crematorium where a committal service is held.
A single service consists of a service located either in a church, one of our chapels, graveside, the crematorium chapel or another suitable location. The single service incorporates the main funeral service and committal service and there is no procession to the cemetery or crematorium.
A memorial service consists of a service located either in a church, one of our chapels, or another suitable location after a burial or cremation has occurred on occasions where a private funeral service is held or where the deceased’s body is not able to be present.
