The Service

The Venue

The style of funeral, size of event, time and availability all play a part in shaping where to have the service with the most popular choices being churches, crematoria.
Technology to live-stream or webcast the service may also be a factor, as may the option to provide catered celebrations of life or tributes.


Music can lend a lot to the atmosphere on the day. We know families often like to personalise the funeral service by choosing special pieces of music. You can opt for church hymns or popular songs which carry meaning. Whatever you choose, we can liaise with the organist and, if it is in copyright, source the music for you.

All crematoria have sound systems to play music and generally have the most commonly requested pieces, including popular, classical and religious. Some chapels have an organ and an organist is usually on hand. You could also consider live performers such as a choir or musicians.

Who Will Officiate The Service

If the deceased had an active faith it will be probably be clear to you where you’d like the service to be held and who you’d like to officiate. We are also happy to liaise with local or retired clergy to find you the advice and support you require.

For many people a traditional religious service is not appropriate and there are many qualified people who will provide a dignified funeral service with your desired blend of content. We can enlist the services of a Celebrant or those of a secular Humanist. Celebrants and Clergy may charge fees which we will forward on your behalf.

Natural & Woodland Burials

Set in peaceful, natural countryside, woodland burials provide an alternative to traditional cemeteries and churchyards and appeal to people who prefer a more environmentally friendly approach. Whilst this can be an ethical option, there are other issues which need to be considered. With no headstones or other markers, the whole site acts as a memorial to everyone who is buried there, rather than just the grave itself, and retains the splendour of the surrounding landscape and helps enhance its biodiversity.

However, for those who want a specific memorial, this will probably not be the option of choice. The coffin will have to be made from sustainably sourced material which is 100% biodegradable to give you the peace of mind that you will leave very minimal impact on the environment. The closest Cemetery to Prestatyn that provides a Woodland section is Coed Bell Cemetery, Gronant.

Roles for Family & Friends

You may wish to include other special people in the ceremony such as relatives or friends by asking them to deliver a reading or compose the eulogy, a tribute to the life of your loved one. Readings can also include poems or favourite passages from books as well as religious readings.

Family & friends can also assist with bearing of your loved one with the assistance of our representatives.

Service Sheets & Tributes

We can also provide service sheets or tributes, that provide a running order, names of key contributors as well as words from hymns, songs or readings. It can also include photos of your loved one.

We also provide advice on digital presentations and slideshows.

Live Streaming & Webcasting

Live streaming or webcasting of funerals is possible to ensure distant friends and family can pay their respects no matter where they live. The service is also available to watch at a later time to suit the convenience of the person.

Most crematoria can offer the webcasting service for a fee.

Attendance Cards

We also offer attendance cards to provide you with a record of who came to pay their respects. These are distributed to mourners and are commonly used to offer messages of comfort that, in some cases, they may not have felt up to doing in person. We can collect and collate these for you after the funeral.

Charitable donations or collections can easily be taken on your behalf.
