What happens after the ceremony is once again a highly personal choice and there are no obligations.
You may wish to release balloons or doves.
Would you like a book of condolence available for people attending the funeral to write messages and memories in? Would you like to keep the floral cards as a keepsake? Prehaps have a piper or brass band to play music whilst you leave the ceremony and chat to friends. Your John Nodes Funeral Service funeral director can organise all of these for you.
You may want to consider a reception afterwards or you may decide to take some time alone or with close friends and family, our drivers will take you back to the venue of your choice.
To help you decide follow our step-by-step guide.
