We pride ourselves that the service we provide will be personal, professional and respectful in every way, from your first contact with us, to the final resting place of your loved one. We offer a varied range of funerals. Each funeral is as unique as the life it celebrates.

We are able to arrange a service for any denomination or, if wished, a non religious funeral. We can help make the funeral a truly personal occasion, whether it be a traditional or modern service. We are proud of our Cornish heritage and, unless requested, the bearers still carry the coffin into church ‘the Cornish way’, using carrying poles, (in most parts of Cornwall, the coffin was never carried on the shoulder), this makes it much easier if members of the family or friends wish to be bearers.

We have our own fleet of hearses and limousine, or, if preferred, we can arrange for a horse drawn, motorcycle, trike, or even VW split screen hearse. We offer a wide choice of coffins, from veneered and solid oak through to sea grass, wicker, cane or custom picture coffins.

We can help arrange newspaper announcements, floral tributes, printing Orders of Service, as well as giving advice on registration. We will receive donations in lieu of flowers and list all the contributors.
