Page in Brief : Phoenix Funeral seeks to help planning a funeral service by offering resources for funeral services, then funeral counselling support following the ceremony.

These resources for help planning a funeral services include suggested readings, music, singers, use of a memory book and printing ideas. We also offer funeral counselling support in your time of loss and grief, or the death of a loved one, a service taker for a funeral service or ceremony, for the Christian or believer, or the atheist, however spiritual or secular, religious or non-religious, those seeking a humanist funeral. Talking of your loved one is healing and allows their story to endure. Included on this page is some of the material you may wish to include in your order of service. We will also conduct the interment of ashes.
