Under 16 Funerals
Should the deceased be under the age of 16, all our professional services are provided free of charge. Many doctors, ministers, crematoriums and cemeteries also make no charge for under 16’s but not all do.
In addition, we can arrange funerals in other parts of the country and organise repatriation from abroad for a funeral in the UK or vice versa, including attending to the necessary permits and documentation.
One way of notifying people of your loss, is by the medium of the press. This can be done locally by using newspapers, such as the Stockport Express, Glossop Chronicle and the Manchester Evening News, or in any of the National newspapers. We can help you compile such a notice, tailored to your requirements. Following the funeral, acknowledgement notices can also be placed.
We can offer help and guidance in arranging a variety of tributes for you with long established local florists.
