How to Personalise a Funeral

If you are looking for a traditional funeral with a hearse and full black dress, Lel and Sarah are here to put together the perfect funeral for your loved one.

We work alongside all our local crematoriums and churches.

We can help you choose the perfect hearse, flowers and help design a printed order of service. We work with wonderful Ministers and Celebrants that will put together the perfect funeral ceremony with your own music choices, readings and poems. Our florists can provide any choice of floral displays, wreaths and bouquets – or even something a little different if you wish.

No two families are the same and we will guide you through any ideas you may have to ensure the day is perfect for you and your family. There are many extra options you can choose from from printed order of services to live webcast streamed from the ceremony. We will not charge you for any items you do NOT desire and we will always raise an estimate of costs after our first meeting with you. In some cases where a funeral is a larger event it is difficult to price each extra item for example: sound system in a church, marquee hire etc but we will always try and confirm these prices for you.

The prices below include the use of a standard black hearse – but there are so many other options to choose from. See our optional extras page https://wallacestuart.co.uk/funeral-prices/optional-extras/
