Saying goodbye in the right way is extremely important. There are many different types of burial services available and the exact arrangements will depend on the decisions of the family members of the deceased.
J Lawrence & Sons is here to help guide you through this difficult time. We will consult with you, so you get exactly what your loved one would have wanted. Personal preferences and religion may factor into the decision-making process, and we can cater to all requests.
A burial may be seen as a more permanent resting place. The remains may be placed in a family grave if there is one. The main cemeteries in the Southampton area are Council owned. These are Hollybrook, South Stoneham, St. Mary Extra, Millbrook and Southampton Old.
The service itself can be held in a church. If this is not appropriate, then we can offer non-religious services in our chapels instead. We work with many independent speakers as well as British Humanist Association Celebrants.
Whether the service is in a church or chapel, hymns can be sung or recorded music can be played instead. We can arrange flowers for you ourselves. If you choose to use a florist, then please ensure that the arrangement is delivered at least 2 hours before the service is due to start.
Another important decision is the choice of coffin. J Lawrence & Sons has a variety of caskets available to choose from. This includes traditional solid wood options as well as more modern designs, such as:
Colourful Coffins | Daisy Coffins | Natural Woven Coffins | Somerset Willow Coffins
With more than a century’s worth of experience to draw from, J Lawrence & Sons are perfectly placed to be your choice of funeral directors in the Southampton area. We offer a tailored approach that makes this difficult time a little bit easier for you.
We will calmly walk you through all of the available options, so you can make an informed decision regarding the specifics of the upcoming burial service. Our team will always be compassionate and understanding as we sympathise with the emotional duress you may be under during this process.
