Giving families a CHOICE.
When someone has died ‘What do I do’
We are here to support and guide families through the process of loss and in arranging a funeral at a price you can afford.
We recognise that organising a funeral can be very difficult and there are a number of options that can seem overwhelming.
To help you decide what is right for you, we have listed some options.
Please phone for a chat and advice if you want to talk it through.
We can offer a ceremony at the Crematorium of you choice or you could choose a direct cremation.
There are two options for a direct cremation.
A direct cremation which the family do not attend but we return the ashes to you. This allows you to hold a ‘celebration of life’ or ‘memorial service’ if you choose to when you like.
OPALS are now offering an enhanced Direct Cremation where family/friends can can attend but there is no service. It will be an early morning commitall (9.15am or 9.30am) and the day of the creamtion will be chosen by us. This includes one member of staff who will read a committal for you if you wish and entry music and a farewell piece of music can be played if requested.
If the family wish to organise the service for themselves this is also possible. Please ask for details.
The total inclusive cost of this will be £1,880.
You can choose a natural burial ground, a church cemetery or local council run burial ground.
This can be a valuable way of celebrating someone’s life and can be held where you choose.
Opals offer advice on a wide range of ceremonies both non-religious and religious as well as offering support to families that wish to create their own ceremonies. We can put you in touch with a celebrant and they will work with you to create a truly personal memorial service.
You could choose to plant a memorial tree in one of the tranquil beautiful green burial sites of your choice. The ashes can be buried beneath a tree and planted in memory of your loved one, providing a peaceful space for you to visit.
Please ask for details … local prices range from £550 – £850.
