The funeral and
The main funeral ceremony can either be held in a venue of your choice, or alternatively, we are able to accommodate the full ceremony at Brightwater for a seated congregation of up to 50 people. If the funeral is held elsewhere, the coffin will be transported to Brightwater for an intimate private interment to be carried out. At this ceremony, the coffin will be placed into the chamber which will be sealed with a decorative headstone, complete with personalised remembrance plaque.
After the interment ceremony, the next of kin will be offered a selection of light refreshments to suit the occasion.

‘The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.’
Marcus Tullius Cicero is considered one of Rome’s greatest orators. His quote reminds us that we all play a role in keeping the spirit and memory of the dead alive.
‘If life must not be taken too seriously, then so neither must death.’
The iconoclastic and controversial English author Samuel Butler took the idea that ‘you can’t take life too seriously’ to its logical conclusion and applied it to death too.
‘Death is not the opposite of life, but a part of it.’
We often think of life and death as irreconcilable opposites, but the Japanese writer Haruki Murakami prefers to consider them as inextricably bound together.
‘How can the dead be truly dead when they still live in the souls of those who are left behind?’
McCullers questioned whether or not we do in fact die when we stop breathing by asking if a part of us can live on in others’ memories and approaches to life.
There is a reception area where .visitors will be treated with a selection of light refreshments to suit the occasion.
There are flat screen TVs in the reception and lounge areas, together with multi-room audio in all areas.
Customers buying a chamber are able to upload onto our database their photos, videos and music library so that visitors will be greeted with music and video that the customer had chosen, all to make their visit more personal and memorable.
