With over 100 years of experience in providing traditional funerals for the community of Cwmbran, we have refined our services to provide a tailored approach that reflects your unique wishes. Offering both burials and cremations, our professional services provide the opportunity to say a heartfelt final goodbye.

Traditional Funerals Tailored to Your Needs

Traditional funerals follow age-old traditions, and many people prefer to have a traditional service because they feel this type of service will offer the most respectful send-off. Here at Arthur Peake & Sons, we offer the freedom to tailor our services to reflect your exact wishes. In addition, if you wish to combine a more modern approach with traditional services, this can be achieved.

What Does a Traditional Service Funeral Involve?

Traditional funeral services usually follow a certain structure that includes the following:

  • Collection and care of the deceased
  • The opportunity to visit your loved one in the chapel of rest
  • A traditional funeral service at the crematorium or church and cemetery
  • Wake where family and friends gather to remember their loved one in a relaxed environment

Eco Funerals

Many people wish to have as little impact on the environment as possible when they pass away. As a result, we offer eco funerals which offer families the opportunity to make the funeral as eco-friendly as possible. There are various steps that can be taken to limit the impact on the environment, such as the provision of an eco wicker or cardboard coffin, absence or funeral cars and other items such as service and hymn sheets. To discuss all our green options, please contact us.

The Funeral Service

The funeral service usually begins with the hearse travelling to the place of ceremony, followed by limousines which the close family will travel in. At the funeral ceremony venue, the coffin will be carried into the service by bearers.

During the service, close family and friends may perform eulogies, and hymns and music may be played. If the service involves a burial, people will gather at the graveside to say a final farewell.
