Chapels of Rest

Whilst your loved one is in our care there will be an opportunity for family and friends to visit our chapels of rest to pay their respects and say a final goodbye.

Funeral Refreshments

Following the Funeral Service it is customary for mourners to gather for light refreshments. This may be a large gathering at a hotel, public house or community room, or a more intimate gathering at a family home. We are able to recommend local suitable establishments close to the Funeral venue or arrange for outside caterers to provide refreshments in the comfort of your own home.

Press Notices

Announcing a death in a local newspaper is a practical way of informing as many people as possible of the place, date and time of the Funeral.

This notice will usually also include details on whether mourners are requested to bring flowers or make a cash donation to a chosen charity. Following the Funeral an acknowledgement or notice of thanks can be placed in the same publication, this notice will thank individuals who have cared for the deceased during their final days or helped the family through their bereavement.

L Tranter & Son are able to place a death notice or acknowledgement in any daily or weekly newspaper whether local, national or international.

Pre-Paid Funeral Plans

For many people, planning their own Funeral has become an established way of looking at the future, just like making a will.

Music for the Service

Choosing suitable music for the service is an important aspect of the Funeral and will help to reflect the deceased’s life and help mourners make their connection. Traditional religious services will usually include hymns whereas non – religious services will include a piece of music for reflection. Most Crematoriums have access to an online music library called the Wesley System, therefore we will require just the version you would like played so that we can source the music. For church services an original CD should be supplied either to ourselves or the minister. Any music chosen for the service must be agreed by the minister / celebrant who will be conducting the service.

Charitable Donations

Donations can be collected at the service in lieu of floral tributes and forwarded by ourselves to your chosen charity. Alternatively we can pass the collection on to a designated family member who may prefer to present the money personally. We will provide a Donation box along with clear signs to facilitate the collection. When choosing a charity you may wish to consider something that was close to your loved one’s heart or alternatively a local charity which will benefit Shropshire people.
