Funeral Services

The funeral service of your loved one is not only a highly emotive and sometimes difficult occasion, but should also be a celebration of the person’s life. Funeral services are highly personal and at A.Slater & Sons, we are here to help you at every step of the way to ensure yours and your loved one’s wishes are met.

A key aspect of any funeral service is the music. This can be a traditional hymn or classic song or even a popular song. Some people even choose a live music performance such as bagpipes. Whatever your preference, A. Slater & Sons can help to arrange the musical aspect of your service.

Many funerals choose to have a eulogy as part of the service. This can be delivered by a religious person, funeral organiser, family member or friend. Some people feel comfortable in writing their own words but A. Slater & Sons are here to assist you should you need any help with the words.

The location of the funeral is also of paramount importance. If the deceased was religious, then the funeral is likely to be conducted in a place of worship. Many people choose to simply host the funeral at the crematorium. A. Slater & Sons can help to advise you on what is likely to suit your needs.
