Which-to-choose

Funeral flowers and charitable donations

Funeral flowers

Flowers are associated with funerals as a way of paying tribute to the deceased and expressing sympathy to the deceased’s friends and family.

There are a wide variety of different funeral flower arrangements and you can choose specific types of flowers or colours, perhaps in line with the preference of the deceased if known. Here we show you just a small selection of the different types of arrangements available from bespoke designs, coffin sprays and sympathy sprays to wreaths, bouquets, shaped and specialist tributes.

We can help you with the ordering of funeral flowers and can also record or collect the card messages for you.

Many mourners attending the funeral may also bring flowers along to the service, but in some cases families may specify that they want to restrict floral tributes to just the immediate family. If mourners do bring floral tributes to the ceremony you may want to consider what you would like to do with the flowers afterwards as it may be possible to donate them to a local hospital, hospice or nursing home for the residents to enjoy – we of course will assist in any way we can and advise accordingly.

Charitable donations

Many people prefer charitable donations in lieu of flowers.

It is likely you will have a charity or good cause in mind who you would like to benefit from the money donated at the funeral. People usually select a charity relating to the deceased for example, a local hospice that they stayed at, or a charity linked to their cause of death such as a cancer, heart or kidney charity.

If you are unsure about who to choose, you can donate money to more than one charity. We will be able to offer some advice.
