When the right words are hard to find, flowers can be the perfect way to express your feelings in saying goodbye or to offer comfort to those who have lost a loved one. They can lift the spirits of everyone in attendance at the service as they gather to say their farewells and play a big part in a celebration of their life. Particularly if you are unable to attend the funeral, flowers can show friends and family that they are in your thoughts...

Click questions to expand...
+ Where should the flowers be delivered?
In most instances, tribute deliveries are directed to the funeral director prior to the funeral, this is recommended wherever possible and allows the undertakers to arrive at the funeral destination with the flowers and the coffin together. Most often deliveries are directed to the funeral directors where the deceased may be at rest prior to the funeral service. Delivery to a funeral director is recommended wherever possible as most of the flowers will be delivered to the undertakers allowing them to arrive at the service or home address together with the coffin. We usually deliver at least 2 hours before the funeral takes place.
A residential address
If you require that your funeral tribute be delivered to a residential address it is best to make sure that there will be somebody available to receive the delivery at the designated time. It is often the case that the funeral procession will leave from the designated delivery address, the funeral flowers may well be displayed for those in attendance prior to the procession leaving for the funeral service destination.
Church / crematorium / place of worship
It is often encouraged to avoid sending funeral tributes directly to a place of worship, church or crematorium. There may not be someone available to receive the flowers or some confusion regarding where the flowers should be left. Our professional florists are also aware that flowers that are simply left outside are subject to weather exposure from time of delivery until the beginning of the service and prefer to avoid the necessity to deliver this way wherever possible.
+ What type of message is sent with the flowers?
Funeral tribute and sympathy card messages can be difficult to compose during such a sad time. Just a few words of heartfelt sentiment will be appreciated. We have supplied a few simple examples below that may help you write your message should you require assistance:
With love and fond memories of (name of deceased) from (Your name)
In loving memory of a dear friend, with love (Your name)
