Your Funeral Choices

We believe in giving you freedom and choice. You can plan a funeral however you like. You may wish to stick with tradition and opt for the full, traditional funeral service. You may wish to have a simple, low key funeral where the ceremony is run by family members and friends. You may wish to have a funeral planned as a religious, semi-religious way or as a celebration of life. We cater for all types of funeral services.

Funeral Services


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.
