Choosing the Right Type of Funeral

Ahead of a funeral service, the first decision to make is whether to hold a burial or cremation. This choice may have already been made by the deceased through either discussion with family members or as stipulated in their Will or Funeral Plan. You will also need to decide on where to hold the funeral, which may be at a church, a crematorium, a graveside, or perhaps somewhere else. Cremations can include a service at a church along with a shorter reception at the crematorium chapel.

Additionally, woodland burials or natural burials, which are becoming increasingly popular, can also be held.

Whatever the type of funeral service that you choose, we can make all of the necessary arrangements.





Our Burial Service

We can give expert advice and assistance on churchyards, cemeteries and other burial grounds. Our team of professionals can inform you of the availability within our local area and help make all the necessary arrangements. 


Some things to remember when considering a burial include:

  • If you already have a family grave or plot, we can arrange for this to be reopened in order for the headstone to be removed before burial
  • In some cases, burial space may be limited or incredibly expensive
  • You may want to reserve plots or a large plot if you want your family to be buried close by
  • The funeral service can be held in a local church or cemetery chapel

We understand that arranging a funeral can be stressful, but we are always available to help answer any questions you might have.

Our Cremation Service

Cremation is the most popular form of funeral service in the UK and can be personalised to suit your wishes. We can provide you with the ashes to take away and scatter, or even arrange to convert the ashes into an item of jewellery.

 Direct Cremation

We can provide a direct cremation service for those who would rather not hold a funeral service. With direct cremation, the deceased is cremated at the crematorium and there is no funeral service beforehand. This option allows for family and friends to hold their own memorial for their loved one. There is no pressure to hold a funeral ceremony; some people like to keep things simple. We are on hand to make the process as stress-free as possible.


For a respectful and personalised funeral service, please contact Curtis Ilott Funerals, an experienced funeral director in
Frome and Coleford, who will listen closely to your needs.
