When your loved one dies,
Funerals are often carried out to conventions that have built up over years and which follow a fairly standard format.
Their final moments
Their final resting place
What If ?
what if these traditions don’t reflect the person who died?

There are some rules, but not many.
Funeral Options & Prices
Whichever type of funeral you choose as your local independent funeral director we’ll make sure you understand exactly what is or isn’t possible, we’ll support you in your choices and we’ll help to ensure that those last days are both meaningful and memorable.
Below we have provided you with some information regarding our funeral options & prices. When we meet, we can help you put any ideas that you might have into creating a truly memorable service.
A Direct Cremation separates the cremation from the funeral ceremony. Giving you the freedom to hold a memorial or celebration of life wherever, whenever and however you choose.

If you are looking for a truly personalised funeral, then our bespoke & Unique funeral service is for you. This option allows you to personalise every aspect of your loved one’s funeral.
Our Bespoke & Unique option puts you in control of every detail. We can create a funeral that reflects a life filled with memories, personality and importance.
You are in control of the design, you’re also in control of the cost too. Personalised doesn’t have to mean expensive.
We believe that everyone who has served in the Armed Forces and Merchant Navy, including National Service and Reservists should be able to have a ceremonial funeral that reflects their service to the Country if they so wish.
We will make all the arrangements for you to have a ceremonial funeral according to your wishes.
A traditional home funeral usually means that the family care for the body at their home for a period of time before the burial or cremation. It’s totally family-led.
Many people who’ve chosen a home funeral believe that it provides both a healing experience and a sense of control over a situation which has essentially been thrust upon them; this in turn helps them to come to terms with their grief.
It can encompass all aspects of arranging the funeral- from care of the body to transport, paperwork, arranging the service and making or purchasing a coffin
There is no right or wrong way to have a funeral for your child. The only way, is your way. You may want to have a service in church with your family and friends around you, or alternatively you may prefer to have just a quiet service held at home or the crematorium or graveside with a minister or celebrant leading the service.
Speak with Gallagher Funeral Services to ensure that your loved one has the funeral that they deserve at a price that you can afford
