Themed Funerals


Themed Funerals

For those that would like to create a funeral service for their loved one that is completely unique in every way, Alderson’s Family Funerals can help with our personalised funeral service. We understand that traditional funerals aren’t for everyone, and some families would prefer to create a service which highlights particular elements of their loved one’s character. This is where a themed service would be the best fit.

A themed service is only limited by what you can dream up and should bring to life all of the qualities and passions of the family member you wish to celebrate. Were they a bit of a daredevil in life? Perhaps you might want to consider taking them for a final ride in a motorcycle hearse! Were they an enthusiast for all things nature? Maybe a peaceful woodland burial would be the most apt sendoff.

Whatever you choose, we will work with you every step of the way to ensure that the day is something special. We want you to cherish this for years to come, and we will do whatever we can to ensure that.

Based in Durham, Alderson’s Family Funerals serve families in the surrounding areas such as Newton Hall, Belmont and Coxhoe. If you have experienced a death in the family and want to make their funeral extra special, contact us today to enquire about our bespoke funeral services.

Yes you can, but in order to do this, we will need the deeds or definite confirmation as to the location. Most councils require the deeds or an indemnity signed. There are often strict rules regarding the erection of memorials in churchyards and cemeteries and we can advise you of these at the time.
