Organising a Funeral
WHEN IT’S TIME TO ORGANISE A FUNERAL
We at the natural funeral company have focus on offering an ecological and alternative approach to funerals.
To us death is an organic process and transitional process and we believe that natural and sustainable practises are the way to go. Our alternative to embalming is the age old practise of bathing with essential oils and restorative creams and cooling with ice. We can do this at your home or at our premises.
There are many decisions to make in arranging a funeral and honouring our connections to the people we know and love. You can rely on us to guide you through the many choices and decisions to be made, from choosing a casket to what kind of service you would like.
We at the natural funeral company value giving family and friends the opportunity to come together in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. With our host-your-own funerals we create an opportunity to personalise and honour the life we are saying farewell to.
Combine this with a high tea, wine and cheese, a cocktails, canapes and dress codes or the good old traditional club sandwiches and savouries.

THINGS YOU NEED TO DO WHEN ORGANISING A FUNERAL
Rituals are an opportunity for us to give value to the lives of those we love. Religious and spiritual factors are important when family and friends come together to decide on funeral plans as are the requests and desires of those who die. There is no legal necessity to have a funeral service, but it is our experience that to mark someone’s passing by an acknowledgement of their life and their gifts to us is an important rite of passage for all involved. You can choose to have cremation first and a memorial service after, or a funeral service with the casket present. Once death occurs a doctor must come and certify the cause of death, then you can call us to come and help you and your family to make arrangements.
