We can show you a wide range of floral tributes and liaise with the florist on your behalf to make sure we have beautiful floral sprays and arrangements ready to accompany the coffin. We will also help you to choose any music you wish to be played when attendees enter and leave as well as create service sheets so that they can follow the readings and sing hymns or songs of your choosing.
If there are members of your family or friends of the deceased you have lost touch with, we will help you to write a fitting obituary which will be published in the local paper so that those who wish to attend the funeral have all the information they will need.
After the funeral, family and friends will often gather together at a local venue or family home to share their memories of the deceased and rekindle relationships with old friends. If you are planning to hold such an event we can help to arrange the venue and catering, ensuring everyone is accommodated for.
We have established close relationships with local memorial masons and can relay you to these companies whom we trust to produce a fitting item of memorial masonry in memory of your loved one. We are not their agents, nor do we take any commission on their sales.
If you live in New Forest, Southampton or the surrounding areas and you would like any further information regarding arrangements for the funeral of a loved one, please get in touch with the funeral directors here at Henry Powell & Son, in Southampton.
