Our Complete Service
At the conclusion of the ceremony, a remembrance book containing
details of the funeral and the names of each person who attended is
prepared for the family. Services in our chapel can be digitally
recorded at the family's request, providing an invaluable memento
for those unable to attend the ceremony or for family wanting to
revisit it at a later date. These small tokens create an historical
record of the occasion and bring value and meaning to the family
long after the ceremony.
At Burstows, we recognise that the funeral is often only the
beginning of the healing process. A funeral is a time of shared
mourning for the loss of a loved one, as well as an important
occasion in which families, friends and community can focus their

importance of having a social component to the service, in which
friends and family can share fellowship and relax after the
formalities of the ceremony. The Pioneers Room is a dedicated
full-catering facility conveniently located alongside the TS
