Funerals in Ireland are intwined with our history and our culture, but new ideas about how we commemorate and celebrate a love one’s life as we mark their passing, along with an ever-widening spectrum of cultures, traditions, beliefs and philosophies of life means that old traditional ways do not suit everyone today. Some might consider a more personal service for their loved one as opposed to a more traditional religious service. while some see the chance to have that personal service after their church service as a chance to honour their traditional religious values while at the same time creating a more intimate celebration for family and friends.
At Lakelands, we welcome your ideas for your loved one’s farewell and our funeral service coordinator will work with you to create something truly unique and memorable.
To give our client families and friends some guidance in selecting a funeral service that is meaningful, we have put together answers to questions about different types of funeral options.
