There are a number of pre-planned services available. This enables somebody to be very clear about the specific type of funeral they would like or just to have the peace of mind that the fundamental decisions are covered, leaving the final decisions to family members at the time.

Choosing Burial/Cremation

Burial

Burial remains the most popular option locally. When one chooses to be buried a few factors must be considered;

  • Is there an existing family grave?
  • Is there space in the grave for further burials?
  • If not, does a new grave need to be purchased?

Cremation

Cremation is an ever growing option for people in Ireland. Cremated ashes can be buried, scattered or memorialised at home. In cases where a persons wish is to be buried with their family but there is no space in the family grave, one can be cremated first and buried with their family at a later date. This also greatly reduces the cost of purchasing a new grave.
