Flowers

Funeral flowers are a lovely way to personalise a funeral. We can guide you through decisions about style, colour and price. We can help you with ordering funeral flowers. We can also record or collect the card messages for you.

Florists can design traditional coffin sprays, sympathy sprays, wreaths, bouquets and shaped tributes. Or you may decide to commission something simpler or more modern.

Where are the flowers delivered?

There are many options with flowers. They can be delivered to your house, the venue or can be stored in our office before the funeral.

Can you give me some ideas about funeral flowers?

Of course. Sometimes a favourite colour or types of flowers might set the theme. Inspiration could come from a hobby such as gardening or photos of past wedding bouquets.

A favourite suggestion of ours is to incorporate a single Yorkshire white rose, especially for a Yorkshire gent.

We are here to provide inspiration. Here are some photos to give you an idea of the styles on offer:

Where do the flowers go afterwards?

This is up to you. Some relatives and friends like to distribute the flowers among the mourners. Many find they give great solace in the days immediately after the funeral.

Some places gratefully accept donated funeral flowers, we can deliver them there for you after the ceremony.  Scarborough Hospital no longer accepts donated flowers because of their hygiene guidelines.

Night by William Blake

The sun descending in the West,
The evening star does shine;
The birds are silent in their nest,
And I must seek for mine.
The moon, like a flower
In heaven’s high bower,
With silent delight,
Sits and smiles on the night.

Farewell, green fields and happy groves,
Where flocks have took delight,
Where lambs have nibbled, silent moves
The feet of angels bright;
Unseen, they pour blessing,
And joy without ceasing,
On each bud and blossom,
And each sleeping bosom.
