Burial Service

There’s a lot to consider when choosing a burial service for a dearly departed loved one.

Decisions are required on the type of coffin or casket, whether to have both church and graveside ceremonies, and even the inscription on the gravestone.

Our experienced staff understand how trying this can be for families at such a difficult time, and will do everything in their power to make the process as smooth as possible.

We can help you purchase a cemetery gravesite, and also advise families who require a crypt or mausoleum space.

After steering you through the details and documentation necessary following any death, White Dove will assist in the planning and organising of the most appropriate send-off for your loved one.
