When arranging a funeral, we take all requests with sensitivity and compassion, doing our very best to provide you with the perfect service for your loved one. As a result of this, we ask that all requests are as detailed as possible, with clear instructions, so that we can provide a service to your satisfaction. Our services range from the simplest funeral to the most elaborate. Whatever the extent of the arrangements, we are here to provide help and advice for all aspects of the funeral, whether it’s travel, tributes or legal matters.
At Havills, we are able to provide various elements to personalise the funeral. We believe that a funeral should be a celebration of life, therefore it is right that you represent your loved one in the right way. Our specialist services include a variety of hearses including the following; vintage hearse, horse-drawn hearse, motorcycle hearse. We are also able to provide musical accompaniment including a bugler and a Scottish piper. Service funerals can also be arranged. If you’d like any of these services please let us know and we can implement these into any plan.
