Funeral Flowers

Funeral flowers have always been a traditional way to pay respect and tribute to the person who has died, and their loved ones.

 

However, understandably, many people hesitate to send flowers to a funeral because they are unsure of the proper etiquette.

If you are considering sending funeral flowers for a loved one, it may help if you consider:

Your relation to the deceased:

Often, flowers for the casket are selected by the immediate family only, with other relatives and close friends sending wreaths, hearts, customized tributes or cushions. If you are a friend / acquaintance or colleague, it is usually more appropriate to send a spray or sheaf arrangement as below.

The faith of the deceased:

the funeral etiquette often varies greatly from faith to faith. To avoid any unintentional upsets, it is important to be sensitive to the faith of the deceased and their family before ordering funeral flowers.

For example, whilst Catholic and Protestant Christians usually welcome all types of flower arrangements, it is not customary to send flowers to a Jewish funeral or to the family home during shiva (the first 7 days following the funeral), whilst for a Muslim funeral, it is considered good etiquette to seek consent from family members before sending flowers to an Islamic funeral.

As the selected funeral director of the loved one you may be purchasing flowers for, please do not hesitate to contact us for advice.

We are happy to oversee all arrangements on your behalf.
