Considering between cremation or burial
The most important choice individuals generally make is all about the type of Greek Funeral Director Service that will take place. Whether or not you decide a burial or even a cremation, well be there for making the many arrangements on your behalf.
Some points to think about about a cremation:

It could cost less than a burial
The Greek Funeral Service can be held at the crematorium. Most may have a service room or maybe various other suitable facilities
The service could also take place in a church or other location before going to the crematorium
There will be a strict time frame for the length of the service. This can differ based on the crematorium
You will have to decide the final resting place of the actual ashes. You are able to keep the ashes in an urn, scatter or even bury them.

You may well have already got a family grave or plot. We are able to arrange for this to be reopened and also the headstone removed before burial
In a few areas, burial space might be limited or may be very expensive

After the burial you will have to consider if you want a memorial headstone, or perhaps a new inscription on an existing headstone.

Making arrangements for the actual service


On the day of the Greek Funeral Service, the hearse will take the coffin to the Greek Funeral Service. The hearse is commonly followed by limousines which will carry the chief mourners. We can provide chauffeured limousines to save you worrying with regards to parking, driving and getting to the service on time.

Remember to inform us when there is a special route you would like the actual procession to take. We are able to speak about this with you as soon as you make the preparations.


Many of us select flowers which were a favourite of the person who has died, which can be another way of making the Greek Funeral Service much more personal. There are lots of styles of floral arrangements. In the event that youd as an idea of the type of arrangements individuals often choose, weve put together a brochure that may help you consider what is right for you.

Many people would rather have flowers from the family members only and select an organisation for folks for you to donate to rather than buying flowers. Its really worth remembering that sending flowers could be a healing gesture for people who have lost somebody close. It might be worth giving people the choice of sending a flower arrangement or even donating money to a charity, or both.

Music, as well as hymns, tapes, CDs as well as live music, generally plays an important part in a Greek Funeral Service. Some churches have strict rules on the kind of music permitted. When there is an organ, be sure the actual organist can easily play the hymns or songs you need.
