A beautiful tribute

Flowers have long been a traditional feature of many funerals as they make a beautiful tribute. Some people elect to have flowers from close family members only, whilst others consider large amounts of floral tributes as a fitting testament to their loved one.

If you would like flowers to be part of the funeral you are arranging, you might like to take a moment to consider the following:

  • The style you would prefer as the main coffin arrangement
  • The size of the arrangement and the kind of flowers you would like to have included

Whilst our Jaguar hearses usually have ample space for flowers, some hearses have more restricted space. It’s always good to consider these things before you commit to a particular type of arrangement or hearse.

You may find the following examples useful as a starting point, but please be aware that seasonality may affect availability of some blooms.

Many families ask us to arrange flowers on their behalf and we can help you with your selection.

What happens to the flowers?

Immediately following a cremation service, floral tributes are normally displayed for a few days at the crematorium, but in due course, they will be removed to make room for others.

For a burial, they will usually remain on the grave or close by. Sometimes we are asked to take the flowers to another family grave or to donate them to a local worthy causes, where the tributes can be rearranged and made into other more suitable floral displays. If this is something you would like to happen, please let us know.

We can also arrange to collect any cars that are attached to the floral tributes and return them to you so that you know who gave them and have the opportunity to read any messages.

Wish to thank all staff at Mortons for being helpful, caring, understanding at my fathers funeral. Used the same director at mums funeral 10 yrs ago so recommend. Made the day a bit easier on a sad day.
