Families are free to choose their own songs and hymns which can be played at the service. For additional charges, the service may be recorded and webcast live for those who are not able to make it on the day.
The cremation can take place within 24 hours of the funeral service. The ashes may be scattered in a garden of remembrance or taken away by the family for scattering, or interment in private spot, cemetery, churchyard or treasured in an urn.
