Sympathy



It’s a difficult time to think about choosing flowers and we understand that. You need time to look at the options available and also to make sure that it’s appropriate. Our Sympathy Collection is a range of the most popular arrangements - all completely adaptable, so you can find a favourite flower, perhaps incorporating a special flower from a beloved garden.

We have two collections:

Sympathy Bouquet & Gift Collection
- A selection of our bouquets, arrangements and gifts which are suitable for sending to loved ones as condolence during difficult times.

Funeral Arrangement Collection
- A selection of our most popular funeral pieces to be sent with the deceased to the funeral.



Where should the flowers be delivered?

FUNERAL DIRECTOR
In most instances, tribute deliveries are directed to the funeral parlour prior to the funeral, this is recommended wherever possible and allows the undertakers to arrive at the funeral destination with the flowers and the coffin together.
Most often deliveries are directed to the funeral directors where the deceased may be at rest prior to the funeral service. We will always contact the funeral director to check when they would like to receive the tribute.

A RESIDENTIAL ADDRESS
If you require that your funeral tribute be delivered to a residential address it is best to make sure that there will be somebody available to receive the delivery at the designated time.
It is often the case that the funeral procession will leave from the designated delivery address, the funeral flowers may well be displayed for those in attendance prior to the procession leaving for the funeral service destination.

CHURCH / CREMATORIUM / PLACE OF WORSHIP
It is often encouraged to avoid sending funeral tributes directly to a place of worship, church or crematorium.
There may not be someone available to receive the flowers or some confusion regarding where the flowers should be left.
Our professional florists are also aware that flowers that are simply left outside are subject to weather exposure from time of delivery until the beginning of the service and prefer to avoid the necessity to deliver this way wherever possible.
