How Can Our Portswood Funeral Director Be Of Assistance?

You’re looking to say goodbye in the best possible way; to arrange a funeral that provides the right send-off. When you’re ready to discuss how you’d like to proceed, give J Lawrence & Sons a call and speak to our funeral director. Portswood clients, we offer a tailored service that starts with an initial consultation, which can take place at our office or your home.

There’s much to consider when planning a funeral, including:

  • Burial or Cremation
  • Church or Chapel
  • Religious or Non-Religious
  • Music Requirements

Our Portswood funeral director is here to walk you through everything, asking carefully pointed questions concerning both your wishes and those of your loved one. If you’re looking to place an obituary notice in a national or regional newspaper, we’ll handle this in a delicate fashion. We can arrange for flowers, either from our own trusted florist or from a florist of your choice.

Any donations can be collected and forwarded to your chosen charity, after which, you’ll be provided with a list of all donors and the final amount received. If you’re opting for burial, we’ll help you select the right coffin from a wide range of options. If you’re opting for cremation, all you need to do is let us know where you intend to place the ashes. We have a range of caskets/urns available, should you require one.

Prior to the funeral itself, our funeral director in Portswood can arrange for a private viewing in our Chapel of Rest. Your loved one will be dressed and presented in a dignified way so that those closest can say their final goodbyes.

Vehicle Requirements

At J Lawrence & Sons, we can provide either a modern Jaguar hearse and limousine, a traditional classic Daimler limousine, or a horse-drawn hearse. Our limousines can seat up to seven people and will drive you to and from the venue. You can also opt to use your own vehicles and ride along behind the hearse instead. Whatever your decision, our Portswood funeral director will strive to accommodate you.

Prepaid Funeral Plans

Often, an individual may choose to pay for their funeral in advance. While this sounds a little morbid, it is a great way of ensuring that when the time eventually comes, your loved ones aren’t saddled with the cost. It’s a wonderful gesture that will allow your family and friends to focus on celebrating your life rather than worrying about financing the whole affair.

To that end, our Portswood funeral director has partnered with Golden Charter Funeral Plans to offer clients the best in value and flexibility. Your funeral planning requirements will all be factored in, and a plan created that’s tailored to your exact requirements. Your wishes will be written down and honoured, and all costs handled through a series of convenient instalments. A funeral plan assures your family that your funeral arrangements are carried out in accordance with your wishes.
