How to find us


Does the body need to be taken away by a Funeral Director?

No. A body can be safely kept at home. We would advise to keep the room as cool as possible by turning off any radiators and electric blankets. Perhaps use freezer packs and ice to keep the body cool. You may want to wash and dress the person. You can close the eyes and mouth, sometimes using a rolled up towel underneath the chin can help.             You may want to call for help and reassurance, which Final Journey will be happy to give.

Where does the body go when it’s in your care?

The body will be kept at our chapel of rest, using refrigeration to help preserve the body. It will remain here until the funeral. You can view the body by prior arrangement with us.

Is the coffin cremated with the deceased?

Yes. Once the coffin is sealed and has left us, it does not get reopened.

How do I know I have my loved ones cremated remains?

The cremation process is governed by very strict rules and regulations. Each cremation is done on an individual basis and there are always cremated remains.

Are funeral plans available?

Final Journey recommend Open Pre Paid Funeral Plans.

Prepaying your funeral puts you in control of your affairs and gives both yourself and those closest to you true peace of mind at what can often be an emotional and difficult time. You can find out more about how the plans work here:
