the day of the funeral
FUNERAL CEREMONY: VENUE
The funeral service can be held in a church / other place of worship, the Crematorium, at the family home, the graveside, in one of our Funeral Churches or the Priory Walled Garden (weather dependent). Seating up to 150* mourners (Ards) / 200* mourners (Bangor), our Funeral Churches are comfortable and air–conditioned and offer the options to LIVEstream or record services.
*Under current Covid 19 rules, there are restricted numbers allowed to gather indoors at funerals.
(Call us for the latest details).
Burial or cremation will be arranged after the funeral service, at which there is usually a brief committal ceremony. Advice on choosing burial / cremation >>
To allow for those attending a funeral to catch up and chat, refreshments are often arranged after the committal. Most families make their own arrangements for refreshments at a church hall / hotel / family home / other venue. We can add details of the refreshments venue to the back of the Order of Service.
