Where should the flowers be delivered?
In most instances, Tribute deliveries are directed to the funeral parlour prior to the funeral, this is recommended wherever possible and allows the undertakers to arrive at the funeral destination with the flowers and the coffin together. Most often deliveries are directed to the funeral directors where the deceased may be at rest prior to the funeral service. Delivery to a funeral director is recommended wherever possible as most of the flowers will be delivered to the undertakers allowing them to arrive at the service or home address together with the coffin.
What type of message is sent with the flowers?
Funeral tribute and sympathy card messages can be difficult to compose during such a sad time. Just a few words of heartfelt sentiment will be appreciated. We have supplied a few simple examples below that may help you write your message should you require assistance;
“With love and fond memories of (name of deceased) from (Your name)”
“In loving memory of a dear friend, with love (Your name)”
“Dearest (name of deceased), May you rest in peace. Love from (Your name) x x”
“With deepest sympathy from (Your name)”
“Our hearts are filled with sorrow. Rest in Peace Love from (Your name)”
“(name of deceased) you will always be in our hearts and minds Lots of Love (Your name)”
“Now at peace with you loved ones, fond memories, your friend (Your name)”
When do I need to order the flowers by?
When ordering funeral flowers please try and place your order 24 hours before the funeral and at least 48 hours for Casket Sprays due to their complexity. We will liaise with the funeral directors ensuring that delivery of your funeral flowers and tributes is a smooth and stress free operation.
