Parlour Cremation

For a simple, cremation funeral at any time of the evening or at weekends, without attendance at the crematorium.

Fosters Funeral Directors conduct many services weekly within our main premises, Serenity House. Our Service Room was purpose-built for families who wish to hold a funeral service at any time of the day, night or weekend.

Many mourners struggle to receive time off work which may make it impossible for them to attend a loved one's funeral. Having an evening or weekend service time may therefore suit both families and mourners alike.

Most funeral services in the USA and Canada are conducted in this fashion; loved ones will attend the full service at the funeral home and the deceased is then cremated privately thereafter.

With our Parlour Cremation service, we aim to take your loved one into our care within one hour then prepare them for the cremation by dressing them and then placing them into an Arran coffin. A funeral director would complete all necessary legal documentation and liaise with the family to choose a suitable time for the funeral service to take place.

We would also arrange for a humanist, civil celebrant, priest or minister to conduct the service which can include organist for hymns and music for before during and after the service. A funeral tea then can be held within the parlour if you so wish or alternatively return to a hotel or your home. Your loved one would then be taken to a crematorium where the cremation would take place privately.

Our Service Room holds 80 people.

For families wishing to receive cremated remains, these would be returned immediately after the cremation.

The costs for this service is £1300.
