Below we have collated different options and ideas to help create a funeral service and lasting tribute to your loved one. Please remember this is by no means an exhausted list.
Photo presentations are a wonderful way to share memories of your loved one with family and friends. A presentation can be screened prior or during a funeral service, or at refreshments to reflect and celebrate someones life. Photos and film footage can be combined with music to create a lasting tributes and keepsake.
In addition to our modern fleet of hearses, we are able to source vintage, horse drawn and motorcycle hearses. You may also choose to use something more personal, such as a family ute or truck. If you don’t feel like driving on the day, we can also organise a coach (seats 4), a limo (seats 7) or something a bit bigger if required.
Balloons or Butterfly Release
A Balloon or Butterfly release can be a special memory for families and friends. This is often done at the conclusion of a funeral service and can be a symbol of love and release.
Printing & Stationary
At William Farmer we offer a wide range of choices when it comes to funeral stationary. You may choose to have a Bookmark, Order of Service, Postcard, Memorial Card or something a little different. Our team of graphic designers will work closely with you to create a keepsake for family and friends to hold onto. After the funeral you may also like some Thank you cards created to reflect your loved ones life and thank those who have been of comfort in your sorrow.
During a funeral service you may choose to include a candle lighting ceremony. We are able to provide a rang of personalised candles to choose from, or you may decide to bring your own.
An RSL Service highlights the services of the deceased to their country, both in conflict and in peace. Traditionally these rituals are conducted by a member of the RSL and may include an Australian flag, the Last Post and Reveille, laying of red poppies and a presentation to the family.
When family and friends are unable to attend a funeral service because they live in a nursing home, interstate, overseas or maybe have commitments that are unable to be changed, streaming the funeral service live means they won’t miss out.
Collecting together a range of life symbols to be displayed during a funeral service is a unique way to create a meaningful space. Often displayed around a coffin, life symbols often spark conversation and interest from those whom attend.
Flowers can be used in many and various ways during a funeral service. You may have a florist you would like to use, otherwise we use a range of experienced florists which create beautiful arrangements.
