Arranging a Funeral

Title Divider

A.G. Smith is and Independent Funeral Director, which give us the flexibility to arrange a perfect tribute for your loved one – bringing people together to express sadness of their loss, whilst celebrating your loved one and paying tribute to the life they lived, their achievements and the memories and love they leave behind.

We understand that losing a loved one presents many challenges and are here to help with every step.

We will arrange all aspects of the funeral to help ensure it all goes smoothly – from arranging the date and time with the church, crematorium, cemetery or woodland to arranging the floral tributes and printed Order of Service.

Here are some points you might find helpful to consider.

  • Burial or cremation?
  • Green or woodland funeral?
  • Religious or non-religious service?
  • Where will we hold the service?
  • What sort of music – pre-recorded or hymns and organ?
  • Printed order of service?
  • Where will the cortege start from?
  • Do we want following cars, how many will they seat?
  • A traditional coffin or something different?
  • Newspaper announcement and acknowledgement?
  • Donations to charity?
  • Floral tributes?
  • Final resting place of cremated remains?
  • Do we want a stone memorial?
  • Ministers, Priests, other speakers?
