  • Readings. Readings are a way to show the individual character and personality of your loved one. So include a particular poem, passage from a favourite book, or Passages of Scripture that were especially meaningful to the deceased, may be included.
  • Eulogy. Often the eulogy is the most remembered and significant part of the funeral service. So a eulogy is often done by several people who were close to the deceased.
  • Flowers. Choose these in keeping with what the deceased loved. Then Doves will liaise with the florist that these fresh flowers will be available at the venue and on top of the coffin if required.
  • After-service-refreshments. Eating allows family and friends to share memories, to laugh, cry and show support for each other. So make sure you have delicious eats available.
