  • Embalming

  • Making the arrangements with the Church, Cemetery / Crematorium

Demand for cremation has grown significantly in Ireland in recent times. In many respects it is exactly the same as the more traditional funeral rite, however there are some important and practical differences. When the funeral cortege arrives at the crematorium chapel, there can be a short committal ceremony.

The options for disposal are:

Private Disposal
Interment or scattering at a garden of remembrance
Interment in a columbarium wall

We will arrange and advise you on all the necessary documentation necessary in relation to the cremation.
