After the Service

It is usual for mourners to want to congregate after the funeral service to share stories and support one another. Refreshments can be provided in the Alfred James Funeral Homes – a minimum of tea, coffee, cordial, water and biscuits or additional food and beverages can be arranged. Tea, coffee etc is also available at a Crematorium chapel. Catering will depend on available facilities if the service is held in a church.

And what to do with the flowers? Can remain with the coffin or be given to the family. You may request that we leave them with the church as decoration. Some families request that they be broken up to give to mourners as they leave a lounge. The choice is varied and entirely up to you.
