Making funerals more personal

Funerals can be colourful, musical, quirky or quaint with as many personal touches as you want. When you arrange a funeral with us, we work with you to make it just right.

If you buy a funeral plan, you can tell us about any wishes you might have, such as music choices or colour schemes.

Create something special

We work with families to put special, personal touches into their loved ones funeral arrangements. Here are some examples of unique tributes we've arranged recently.

A fuss-free farewell

A family in Redcar loved the idea of our essential funeral as they said their dad didn't want a lot of fuss. They told our funeral arranger, Gavin, that their dad always said "just pop me in the back of my van" and were amazed when he turned around and said "why don't you?" It was the perfect tribute.

Cookie heading the procession

When funeral arranger, Arlene, was speaking with a family about their loved one's funeral, they mentioned how much their little dog Cookie was going to miss them. Arlene suggested that Cookie be part of the funeral procession, and she walked nicely alongside Chloe the Funeral Director. She even wore a pink ribbon on her collar to match the rest of the funeral team.

A 'cushty' send off

What's the perfect way to say goodbye to someone who was the biggest Only Fools and Horses fan? Of course, it's our specialist hearse modelled on the famous Reliant Robin from the classic show. Arranged here by our fantastic team in Polegate.

Funeral music chart

As funerals can be personalised to reflect the life of the person who has died, families are opting for personal favourites or contemporary songs to be played. Music can be light-hearted, sometimes even humorous or it could even be played by a live band or musician.

Trustpilot review

A 5* review for a super send off

"My brother recently passed away. He was a huge Marvel/super heroes fan. The team at Eye were absolutely amazing. The pall bearers dressed as my brother's favourite characters. The celebrant, Lisa, even collected and returned the outfits.

"Thank you to Danny and his team for making such a heartbreaking event a real celebration of my brother's life."
