Traditional Funerals

A traditional funeral follows a set process involving a viewing, a service, a burial or cremation, and a wake. At Bowley Funeral Service, we take great care to arrange every step of our traditional funeral services, ensuring every detail is taken care of so you can focus on laying your loved one to rest. 

The process of a traditional funeral is as follows:

Viewing: The family can visit your loved one in a funeral home over a 2-3 day period.

Service: The funeral – this can take place at a graveyard, a place of worship or a crematorium.

Burial or cremation: This will be determined as per the wishes of the deceased or family.

Wake: The wake takes place in a more informal setting, where people can gather to reminisce about the person who has passed. Some people opt to have catering at wakes, and they can be held at someone’s home, or a venue can be hired. 

Whatever form you’d like the traditional funeral to take, you can trust Bowley Funeral Service to organise it. Our costs are tailored to your exact requirements, and we can facilitate everything from the venue, to floral tributes for the funeral and donations. Please feel free to contact us today and we’ll be happy to help.
