Funeral Sheafs

These are by far our most popular funeral tribute. There are two choices – small sheaf’s are usually suitable as family flowers or as a small casket tribute, and the larger casket sheaf’s are usually used as the main tribute. The sizes are given on each product. They are a great choice as they are very natural, very beautiful, far removed from the stifled uniformity of most tributes and they are also compostable which makes them very suitable for crematoriums and natural burial grounds. The funeral sheaf arrives with the stems wrapped with a reservoir of water with clear instructions of how to remove and keep the arrangement fresh. View our Funeral Sheafs

Casket Sprays

We have single end and double end casket spray options and a variety of colour options. They are based on an oasis base. We can work to your brief, but of course if given a free reign always try to include a little bit of wild and foraged natural material in our designs. These sprays have to be hand delivered so we work to a 40 mile radius usually and can quote on delivery. View our Casket Sprays

Funeral Cross

A striking, simple evergreen design that is made on a frame with the best seasonal foliage we have in our floristry at the time. If we are able to, we will add rosemary for remembrance. View our Funeral Cross

Sympathy Flowers

These are not sent on a pre 12 and are not suitable for the funeral service as the back is not flat and therefore they cannot be laid down – they are a very pastel bouquet sent in a reservoir of gel and suitable to put into a vase. They are designed to go to the home of the family as a sympathy gesture. View our Sympathy Flowers

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I send flowers that are not specifically designed funeral flowers?

A: Funeral Flowers are designed to look their best when laid on top of a coffin or on the ground, so whilst it is lovely to send a sympathy bouquet or other hand-tied flowers to someone's home to pay your respects for the service it's probably best to choose the specific designs to avoid them toppling over as they could if it was a vase or hand-tied bouquet type design.

Q: Is there a specific design for certain members of the family or friends to send?

A: Usually the immediate family will choose a casket spray or a sheaf to go on top of the coffin for the service, but anyone can send any type of funeral arrangement, so always go with what you love.

Q: Is there a certain colour scheme for funerals

A: Absolutely not. The important thing in our view is that the tribute is chosen with love and reflects the life and loves of the person who has died. These days whilst white conveys elegance, reverence and peace there is no need to stick to that unless fitting. Most of the funeral tributes we make are natural, beautiful blooms which celebrate nature and life, and include a little wild foraging whenever we can.

Q: How soon should I arrange the flowers

A: It's always best to give as much notice as possible but we are here to help and as long as the flowers are ordered one working day before they are needed we should be able to make your tribute.

Q: Should I have my flowers delivered to the funeral director?

A: If possible it is usually best to have your flowers delivered to the funeral directors but there is no problem if you prefer to have them delivered to a home address. Please do not arrange to send your flowers to the Church or place of worship or crematorium unless you have full knowledge that there will be someone to receive them there that is able and willing to deal with the flowers properly. (they will need unwrapping and putting in water.

Q: What is the right amount to spend on funeral flowers?

A: There are no rules and regulations on this - in our experience if the flowers are the main casket flowers clients usually spend approximately £80 - £150, but there is nothing wrong with having a smaller simple tribute. It is a matter of matching what you feel is right with what is fitting for the deceased.

Q: I have more questions

A: We know how sad it is to lose someone and we appreciate that this is a difficult time. Our florists look at funeral tributes as the very last gift that a loved one can do for the person who has died, and to that end they will make sure that they have understood what is needed and ensure that your flowers are beautiful and appropriate.
