Alternative Funerals Offer People An Out Of The Ordinary Service


These days, more and more people are moving away from traditional funerals and going for more individual services that reflect the life and achievements of the person who has died. If you want something a little bit out of the ordinary then this could be just what you have been looking for.

Funeral Care has changed a great deal over the last ten years or so. People are demanding more choice, more information and more control so that they can create funerals that are a truly personal celebration of the life, beliefs and achievements of the person who has died. At Saint and Forster we aim to provide a modern and forward thinking funeral service that puts you in the driving seat all the way. We can cater for all beliefs and none, as well as for those who do have spiritual ideas but do not follow a particular religious path.

More and more people are trying to live lives that are ‘environmentally friendly’, respecting the earth we live on and its resources. This is extending into death as well with ever growing numbers of people opting for a ‘Green’ funeral. Our page on green funerals will give you more information on how to go about researching and planning for a greener farewell.

In today’s world, pets are increasingly being seen as a part of the family and at Saint and Forster we believe that they should be part of a modern funeral service too. Visit our page on pet funerals to see suggestions of how we might be able to help when the time comes to say goodbye.

Whatever your beliefs, hobbies or interests and tastes they can be incorporated into a modern funeral service which is about celebrating life with gratitude and hope. Please look at our New Horizons for ideas on how to create a truly personal and individual tribute. Every person is unique and every funeral should be as well!

Whatever your ideas, please get in touch to discuss them with Keith or Jenny. We will spend as much time as you need discussing all the options that are available to you and our advice is free.
