Cremations have become more popular in recent times. If a cremation is preferred, Silver Dove Funerals can arrange all the necessary details with the crematorium of your choice. Most crematoriums have a chapel that may be used for the service and often catering facilities if the family wish.
Burial is a traditional option and a personal preference. For burials, we are able to provide advice and assistance if a new grave is required or, the family may have an existing plot. If your family does not already have a cemetery plot, our staff are able to advise you on cemetery locations for a suitable burial plot or crypt for your loved one.
Children And Baby Services
At this very emotional and difficult time, we are here and able to provide a dignified memorial tribute or funeral service for a child. Silver Dove Funerals are able to offer families a range of memorial options, including urns, memorial books, candles, hand and foot prints, as well as a Butterfly or Dove release at the funeral service.
Often the presence of a coffin is disturbing and stressful for the family. We can assist and organise the cremation for the family and, after collecting the ashes on your behalf, arrange a service to celebrate and honour the life of your loved one.

Returned Service Men/Women And Masonic Lodge/Clubs
It is always a privilege to pay tribute to our great servicemen and women. Chaplains and appropriate representatives can be arranged to meet the specific needs of each family and acknowledge the respective beliefs and wishes.
Often a loved one may wish to return to their land of origin or alternatively, be returned from overseas. If particular wishes have been discussed, it can greatly assist the family for the arrangements. Our experienced staff are able to attend to the necessary requirements by respective Authorities.
It is becoming more frequent that many people and their loved ones are choosing a greener, more refined farewell using our Eco-Friendly options that are available. Silver Dove Funerals provide 'Eco Coffins' that are made by natural products, that are by far more environmentally friendly. Whilst every effort is made there are times when a complete 'Green Funeral' is made difficult. With this in mind, our staff will source the best ways to provide you with a Greener Funeral and say farewell in a more natural manner.
