Choosing the type of funeral

One of the first things to consider before you arrange the funeral ceremony, is whether the funeral is going to be a cremation or burial.

Whether you choose burial or cremation is completely your own choice. There are many factors, including family tradition, religion or the wishes of the person who has died.

Today, around 3 in 4 funerals use cremation. There are several reasons for this, but one of the main reasons is because cremations tend to cost less than burials.

If you’re unsure which type of funeral to choose, please feel free to contact us on 0121 476 9111, and we would be happy to discuss the differences and considerations.

Burial plots can be hard to find and churchyards and cemeteries are all different, each having their own particular rules and regulations. We can work with you to understand your individual requirements and liaise directly with the relevant parties to understand your options.



Today, cremation is the more popular funeral option. If you choose a cremation service, one of the first things to decide is where you’d like to hold it. We can work with you to locate your closest crematorium and any specific regulations they may have.


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.
