    Thank you so much for all your help and care for my mother, Norma’s funeral. It was very much appreciated by all of us, especially me.

    Many thanks to you all

  • “Dear Kathryn

    A note to say a huge thank you for all the help and understanding shown with regards to mam’s funeral. She always said that “when her time came” she wanted Alderson’s to be the ones to lay her to rest. She knew what she was talking about!

    You knew exactly what we wanted for mam – not too much fuss but all such good taste – you made a sad occasion a happy one and for that we will be always grateful. Everyone at the funeral and those who managed to see it online said mam would have “enjoyed” it – a rare comment at such a time, but very true.

    Alan, the rest of the family and me knew what a wise person Olive was and she proved that when she chose you.

    With much thanks

    From Anne, Alan and family”

If you would like to take further steps to remember your loved one after the funeral, there are a number of different options available to you. For example, you could consider our range of keepsake items, such as scatter tubes and memory stones, memory bears, keepsake jewellery or you could put your loved one’s name in the memorial book.
It’s not always easy to know what flowers would best suit the funeral you are arranging, but it’s not uncommon to see any of the following: sprays, wreaths, sheaves and baskets, posies, hearts and cushions, and crosses and letters. If you would like to see our flower brochure or would like some expert advice from our team, please contact us.
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.
