Choosing an appropriate venue

Fry Bros can assist in all styles of funeral and memorial services; from traditional church and chapel services, to modern celebrations of life held in a location with special family significance such as a favourite park, private garden, home or venue of your choosing.

When considering the venue:

  • How many people are you expecting to attend the Service? Is the venue large enough to accommodate everyone, or is it too large? Public or private?
  • Is there adequate seating?
  • Do you require special facilities, for example audio or audio visual projection?
  • Do you need disabled access?
  • Are there any time restrictions at the venue?

Some Options Include:

  • A church or other place of worship
  • A chapel
  • Graveside service
  • A garden setting or family property
  • Parkland
  • A function centre or community hall

Funeral Service Options

The style of funeral service can be a reflection of the person who died and their family and friends. There are a variety of funeral service options.

To help with your planning, here are a few options to consider:

  • A service held in a church, chapel or venue of your choice, followed by a full cortege to the crematorium or place of burial, where the committal will take place.
  • A service held in a church, chapel or venue of your choice, followed by a private cortege to the crematorium or place of burial, where only the immediate family is present to witness the committal.
  • The entire service, including the committal, is held in a church, chapel or venue of your choice. At the conclusion of the service, the coffin or casket is farewelled from the church or chapel, and Fry Bros will privately convey your loved one to the cemetery or crematorium.
  • The entire service, including the committal, is held at the graveside.
  • A memorial or thanksgiving service is held in a church, chapel or venue of your choice. No coffin or casket is present at the service. This style of service usually occurs after a private burial or cremation. A memorial or thanksgiving service can be incorporated with the scattering of ashes.
