Visiting the Deceased

Whether to visit the Chapel Of Rest or Viewing Rooms and see your loved one is a decision that you and only you can make. 

Our long experience has indicated to us that some people do sometimes get genuine comfort from seeing their loved one at rest, and spending some quiet time together, but no one should feel under any pressure to visit, it is a very personal decision which should be respected by all.

If anyone feels that they would just like some time with the closed coffin, for simple reflection this can be arranged without any problem. It may also be that families would like to place something in the room, for example a picture, photograph or personal item, again we can assist with this. 

Should you decide to visit, we will do our utmost to make the experience as comfortable as we can, to this end our staff will discuss this and advise on how and when this may be best done.

We operate an appointment system for visiting, which we find gives maximum privacy to our families, although all our rooms have an adjacent private quiet lounge to retire to before leaving the premises.

Occasionally some people feel it too distressing to see their loved one in a coffin. To try and help people in this position, we have an arrangement which gives the impression of the person being in a bed. There are limitations to this which we can discuss with you and explain.
