We see more and more personalised funerals, but the service will most likely build on the same core concepts. It will usually take place in a church or chapel, or at a place that was special to the person or the family, such as a beach, a garden, the local RSL or the family home. You'd be surprised by how many ways in which your funeral director can help you create a funeral service that truly reflects the life and values of your loved one, making it unique to them.
Yes. Tobin Brothers, a Guardian Funeral Provider, encourages families to participate in a funeral service. For example you can form a guard of honour or deliver a eulogy. Participating in the funeral allows you to express your feelings more meaningfully and will give the service a more personal touch.
