    Additional services to compliment our funerals…

Here at Daniel Mercer Family Funerals, we offer a range of additional services to compliment our funerals, and to give you the choice to persoanlise your loved ones funeral. Please click on each header to find out more.

A full range of coffins and caskets are available at additional costs.

Families may want to think about other ways of making the funeral reflect the life of the person who has passed away. We will do our best to arrange anything we can for families. Some of the things we offer: horse-drawn carriage, motor cycle funerals, woodland/environmentally friendly funerals, releasing doves at the crematorium or at the graveside, or a route that might stop at their local pub/club. We can provide all this and so much more.

Flowers are an expression of love, sympathy, and respect. It is often difficult for those mourning a passing to put feelings into words. Flowers can help with this: by placing flowers on the coffin and around the coffin to create beauty and love for all to see on the day of the funeral. We can also supply a donation box on the day of the funeral.

We are able to assist in the design and printing of a family’s order of service, and any additional print requirements, that a family may have.

We can design and make a head stone/memorial.

We can help with any announcement wishes there may be.

We can arrange to have a loved one transported and laid to rest in the land that they referred to as home.

We are proud to be working with Golden Charter in offering Funeral plans.
