The decision whether or not to visit the deceased is a personal one. We cannot advise you about your preference but many people take comfort from seeing the deceased peacefully at rest, others find it far to upsetting.
It really is a personal choice and we aim to help in any way we can.
Private chapels of rest are available at our funeral homes or you may wish to have your loved one at home, we will be pleased to discuss arrangements with you,
Your are welcome to display a photograph in the chapel of rest and place a selection of personal items of the deceased that depict maybe a favourite hobby or pastime and even have favourite music played making the overall ambience of the chapel more personal to you and your family.
Many families take great comfort in placing personal items like photographs or letters in the coffin. We place no restrictions on what may be placed in a coffin however there are restrictions placed by crematoria, where appropriate we will give advice.
What ever your wishes we are pleased to help in any way we can.
