In this fast and tech-savvy world, commercialization seems to be the order of the day. While it is understandable, and even acceptable in case of commodities, it comes as a rude shock when solemn and compassionate events like funeral services also get ‘marketed’ in the same manner. All funeral services seem the same. They are more like well – rehearsed rituals than the meaningful and memorable services they were intended to be. They lack a personal touch. Qualities like reverence for the departed, and sensitivity and compassion for the bereaved, appear to have gone with the wind…
A boutique family business, Hamilton Funerals is proudly owned and operated by Adam and Michael Flanagan. They are committed to providing the community with the best funeral service possible and ensure that every call of enquiry is personally answered by one of them. They are ever ready to listen and support you through your time of emotional upheaval. They help lessen your burden by taking care of all the arrangements required for the conduct of a dignified and memorable funeral service.
Adam and Michael Flanagan personally attend to all the details of the funeral service after an initial conference with you. Your personal preferences and other specific requirements are discussed elaborately. From then, all aspects of the funeral service are meticulously planned by them, to the last detail.
Here are some of the services they offer:
A funeral is a very personal ceremony and Hamilton Funerals respects this sentiment. They will discuss all available choices with you and ask for any special requirements that you may have. Since they cater to a wide range of options – religious, non – religious, cremation, burial, they ensure that the funeral service suits the individual and is customized to meet his specifications.
Other services include:
• Arranging clergy or celebrant
• Arranging for music
• Provide catering service
• Manage press notices and announcements
• Procure medical papers and other relevant documents
• Floral tributes
The first meeting with one of the funeral directors will take place either in the comfort of your own home or at the office of Hamilton Funerals, at a time that suits you. During this meeting all arrangements for the funeral will be discussed and confirmed with you to ensure that the service is exactly as you desire.
The funeral arranger will coordinate all necessary arrangements and is always available to assist you, and will also attend the service. Hamilton Funerals will help you with all the aspects of the funeral like, organizing the clergy or celebrant, flowers, press notices, and catering.
These funerals allow you to choose the type and style of funeral service you want without the pressure of having to decide in haste. You can take your time to deliberate and decide if you would prefer a burial or cremation, where the ceremony should take place, and other specifications.
A pre arranged funeral allows you time to think of and record your wishes with the funeral director. No payment is required at this stage. In a pre paid funeral plan, you pay in advance for the funeral you choose, thus lessening the financial pressure on the family. The price of the funeral is fixed at the prices as on that day, and will not be affected by inflation.
Hamilton Funerals provide a traditional black hearse and passenger car, classic Mercedes Benz 1971. Other vehicles could also be arranged to suit your individual wishes.
Hamilton Funerals works with a wonderful florist and tries to cater to individual requests as much as possible. Flowers can be selected from a book of photographs. It is also possible to use your own florist.
