Mortuary Care & Viewing
When a loved one is brought into our care, they are looked after in our mortuary care centre. This is where we care for those that have passed away by bathing and dressing them. Our team of experienced mortuary technicians will carefully and respectfully carry out any family wishes whilst maintaining the highest level of dignity at all times. Sometimes families wish to assist in the care process and we highly encourage this.
After mortuary care, a family’s loved one will safely rest in the chosen coffin until the day of the ceremony.
The viewing is a time for family to support one another in their grief. During this time your loved one will be resting in there coffin, allowing you and others who loved the person to acknowledge the reality of the death and to say goodbye.
You may consider giving friends the opportunity to come into the viewing. If possible, try not to leave the viewing last minute. Allow enough days between the death and the day of the service to benefit from the viewing.
