If you would like your loved one to be received into the family home before the day of the funeral, then please speak to us in advance.
Reception into the home was the norm many years ago but over time, the ritual became less popular. However since 2012 there has been a shift to the past with many families asking for their loved one to be taken home.
Many have later recounted that this tradition gave them an opportunity to be with their relative in a very personal way, within the confines of a familiar setting, thus helping them come to terms with the bereavement.
Equally, if you would like your loved one receiving into a place of worship before the day of the funeral, then please speak to us. This is certainly popular among families of the Roman Catholic faith and certain other faiths as well.
We try to accommodate all requests but, in certain circumstances, this is not always possible.
