Can we request donations to charity ?
Yes, if donations to charity are requested in lieu of flowers, we will collect them on your behalf and help you to forward them to the charity of your choice. There will be a box available at in the chapel for these.
Why do the funeral cars drive with their headlights on and why are the family asked to put theirs on too?
The word funeral is derived from the Latin “funeralis” meaning a torchlight procession, so it is traditional for the cortege to be lit. Also, it helps the hearse driver to keep track of any family vehicles following the procession.
