For thousands of years, mourners have been placing flowers on graves or coffins when loved ones have passed on.
Today, this tradition continues with floral tributes called ‘casket covers’, which symbolise the love and respect the family feels towards the one who has passed.
People often like to select flowers or colours which were important to the one who has passed, and we’ll take the time to learn about what you’d like and work with the florist to design a tribute worthy of your loved one.
Funeral flowers are not like they used to be. Now, instead of everyone purchasing individual wreaths, you can choose to have everyone say goodbye by placing a single flower on the casket during the funeral ceremony.
If you prefer, mourners can be encouraged to donate to a cause in honour of your loved one as an alternative. We can arrange for a collection as part of the service and pass on the full donations to your chosen charity.

Thank you"Michael
