A Personal Service is a lower cost, cremation funeral service at a crematorium of County Funerals choosing, The personal service differs from a Traditional Funeral as it is a shorter service time in the crematorium of 20 minutes and includes music for entry and exit only. The service can be led by the family or an officiant at an additional charge to allow it to be focused on a celebration of life. The Personal Service can be attended by maximum of 25 mourners, the service comes with a lower price and with less pomp and ceremony, such as the coffin will already be in the crematorium chapel on the catafalque before the 25 mourners arrive for the service. This is an option for those who will have fewer attendees and wish not to be constrained by traditional requirements and are instead seeking a personalised option with a lower price tag. They can be arranged before time for those who want to arrange their own funeral, or by family members wishing to say farewell to their loved one.
The Personal Service includes all our funeral director fees, advice on registration and certification, bringing the deceased in to our care (out of our office hours additional fee applicable), a standard veneered coffin, visiting in the chapel of rest, cremation fee, doctors’ fees. The cremated remains are returned to the family in a simple urn or can be scattered at the crematorium with or without the family present.
