What you choose to do after the ceremony itself is entirely up to you. Some people like to release doves, some simply want to take time alone with family and friends.
Think about whether you would like a book of condolence available for people attending the funeral to write in or if you would like to keep the floral cards in a booklet as a keepsake. Perhaps you would like a piper or brass band to play music whilst you leave the ceremony. William H Painter Funeral Directors can advise you on all these options and organise them for you. If you are going on to a reception, wake or going straight home, if required our drivers can take you back to the venue of your choice.
