We understand that this can be a difficult and traumatic time and we will do our utmost to provide the best possible service to you. We can help you by assisting in all aspects of the funeral. Please feel free to discuss any additional information which you feel will help to personalise the funeral to your family's needs, such as a favourite song, a request to pass by the house, favourite flowers or charity donations in lieu of flowers.

Below are some of the standard aspects of a funeral and some details of what services Burke’s can provide you with:

  • We provide assistance with death registration and medical permissions from hospitals and getting the medical forms signed for cremation where necessary.
  • We arrange for removal from hospital / nursing home/ house where we can embalm in preparation for viewing. We will discuss clothing and presentation suitable to your loved one.
  • Our range of coffins ensures there is one to suit all budgets - we also provide environmentally friendly options.
  • We make contact with the church to arrange funeral mass/service. We liaise on your behalf with the relevant cemetery or crematorium to make all necessary arrangements.
  • We will assist you with publishing an obituary notice in the papers or on the website.
  • If you would like to have the deceased waked at home, we can discuss and arrange this with your family.
  • We offer modern Mercedes hearses for funerals and a range of Mercedes limousines.
  • Depending on you preferences we can arrange singers and/or an organist.
  • Please ask us for advice if you are planning a civil service.
  • We ensure that an attendance book is always available at the funeral service for those attending the funeral to sign.
  • Some people prefer to discuss funeral plans in advance or seek general advice or specific information. We are always willing to discuss your queries or concerns and if required, we can keep specific requests on file.
