The Most Considerate Choice for a Memorial Service Southampton Has to Offer

When you’re ready to speak with us, give us a call and arrange for a consultation at whatever location is convenient for you. There are many important decisions to be made when making funeral arrangements. For your memorial service in Southampton, do you want a burial or cremation? Church or chapel service? Religious or non-religious ceremony?

Burial and Cremations

Often, the deceased will usually state their personal wishes regarding this choice prior to their death, as it is quite personal. Religious beliefs can also determine whether a person is buried or cremated. Often it depends on whether you desire a permanent resting place or not for your loved one. There is a choice of crematoriums and cemeteries for you to choose from for the memorial service. Southampton residents need only let our consultants know their preference.

Service or Chapel

Again, this often comes down to personal preference, including religious beliefs. Some people may wish to have their memorial service take place in a church. Whereas, others may prefer, instead, to skip the church and have the service in the chapel at the crematorium or cemetery. Depending on the choice, religious or non-religious speakers can be made available.

Other Considerations

But there’s more to consider than the venue and service. We’ll ask about the music requirements which can include hymns or recorded music. J Lawrence & Sons can place obituaries online or in national or regional papers in the build-up to or following the service in Southampton. Memorial service arrangements also include flowers which we can sort out for you. If there’s a florist you’d prefer to use, we request that all flowers be delivered at least two hours before the funeral.

As part of the funeral arrangements, we’ll also assist you with handling donations, vehicle requirements, choosing a coffin, options for cremated remains and funeral costs. In regards to funeral costs, we normally recommend clicking on the funeral payments page of the GOV.UK website to see if you’re entitled to financial assistance.

One last decision you’ll have to make is whether or not to have a viewing at our Chapel of Rest as part of the memorial service. Southampton residents often choose this service as it lets them see their loved one at peace, one last time.
