At Normington & Sons Ltd, we can help you during each and
every stage of the difficult process, with considerate and thoughtful funeral directors on hand to provide advice and guidance on caskets, funeral pricing and much more.

Funerals Are Only For Religious People
Though many funerals are linked to organised faith, they don’t need to be deeply religious occasions. The basis of a funeral service is to mark someone’s life and recognise the legacy they are leaving. A loved one’s funeral which is not religious can contain individual choices of music, readings, personal tributes and all manner of touching ways to celebrate their life. Anyone can organise and conduct a non-religious funeral ceremony, including family members and friends. If you have any questions about non-religious ceremonies, give us a call on 01226 700 760.
A Funeral Service Is Expensive
The idea that funeral services are expensive may make organising a ceremony off-putting, however the service doesn’t need to be especially pricey, with Normington & Sons understanding that every person’s requirements and budgets are different, and costs can vary depending on you and your family’s needs.

Coffins Must Be Transported In A Hearse
Though coffins are traditionally transported via hearse, for your service the coffin could be transported in a way which is more appropriate to your departed loved one. Any vehicle which is able to carry a coffin safely can be suitable for this, including a horse and carriage, motorcycle or other unique form of transport.
If My Loved One Was Cremated, There Can’t Be A Service
Just because your loved one was cremated, this doesn’t mean you can’t organise a funeral service to pay tribute to them. Part of planning the funeral service for your loved one is deciding what you are going to do regarding cremation or burial, and we offer a selection of urns for you to choose from if the former is what you decide.
