Arranging a funeral

We’ll guide you through

Alex Black Funeral Care understand how overwhelming and emotional it can be to arrange the funeral of a loved one. Our aim is to make this journey as easy as possible, using our years of experience to help advise and guide you through each step.




What to consider when organising a funeral service

 Cremation or burial - If it’s to be a burial, do you have the title deeds for the lair or will it be a new lair?

✔ Who will take the service? - Local minister, priest or humanist? Will you want a separate church service or one at a crematorium?

✔ Flowers - We can provide you with information and advice on a fitting floral tribute. Our recommended florist is John Allan, an Interflora company.

✔ Newspaper notice - We can help advise and write a notice to be placed in the paper before the funeral.

✔ Reception - Is there a hotel or club that you would like to return to following the service? We have a range of menus for local establishments that you can choose from.

✔ Order of service booklets or memorial cards? - Tailored to your needs, these can contain hymn words or a poem/message as well as photos.

✔ Music - Is there a particular hymn you would like to include in the service, or a favourite song to be played as people enter or leave the church/crematorium?
