The services we provide cater for all denominations as well as non religious funerals. We have a close working relationship with all the local churches and chapels and can engage the services of a humanist or a secular officiant, if desired. We can also arrange green burials.
We are here to put into place a funeral service appropriate to the individual. For smaller services of up to 30 people, we have our own service room at our Bletchley/Fenny Stratford premises. As our experience is vast we can offer ideas and advice.
