At White Rose Funeral Services, we will make funeral arrangements with you at a place of your choice. Funeral arrangements normally take around one hour. This allows time to speak with you and to complete all of the necessary documentation. Once arrangements have been made we will give you an estimate of the charges incurred. A date and time of funeral service will need to be discussed and where possible we will make arrangements to suite the date you have in mind.
We only provide families with the very best services, quality is everything.
