Dignified funerals, commemorated with honesty,
warmth, affection and attention to detail.
Most funeral ceremonies offer a period of quiet reflection for private memories,
prayers or moments of gratitude.
Diana will work with you during your life, or with your family, to design a personalised ceremony to reflect the individual's personal religious or non-religious beliefs and wishes and which will be both comforting and uplifting to your mourners.
