Dignified Funeral Service


Tradition and Simplicity

At E White and Son, we understand that honouring a loved one’s memory doesn’t require elaborate ceremonies. For those seeking a simple yet dignified farewell, we offer our dignified service, this service attempts to provide all of the tradition that we hold without the pomp and ceremony that some people dislike or deem unnecessary.

This dignified service offers a meaningful way to say goodbye, allowing you to focus on what matters most: honouring your loved one and finding comfort in this difficult time. We understand that every family’s needs are unique, and we are here to create a respectful service that reflects your wishes.

While simple, this service still allows for personalisation. Whether you choose to spend time with your loved one in our Chapel of Rest, have a small, intimate funeral service led by one of our compassionate funeral directors, or add a touch of beauty with a small floral tribute, we are here to help you create a goodbye that reflects your loved one’s life and your family’s wishes.

This intimate service prioritises the essentials, ensuring your loved one receives respectful care and a meaningful tribute, without unnecessary costs or complexities. Please contact us today to discuss your needs and learn more about this service. We are here to support you every step of the way.
