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 one of our other options.
A direct cremation the family do not attend. This allows you to hold a ‘celebration of life’ or ‘memorial service’ if you choose to, when you like. Some families will intern the ashes at their chosen location as a preferred option.
OPALS are now offering a Committal Cremation where a small number of family and friends can attend but there is not a full service. It will be an early morning commitall (9.15am or 9.30am). 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.
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.
