Beverley, you were taken from us so quickly and too soon. Thank you for the many years of loving, sharing with, and caring for our Dad and Grandpa, Ian. Your visits to us in South Africa were happy times but always too short, like our visits back to you in Scotland. We know you are now at peace. Hamba Kahle Gogo. Go well Granny B. Our love Alan, Liz and Gavin in Johannesburg, and Alison in Cape Town.

Attending a funeral FAQs

View all FAQs >

What should I wear?

We normally associate wearing black with going to a funeral. But it is increasingly typical for families to express a preferred dress code. Our advice is to look out for information from the family in a notice published either in newspapers, online or in the funeral director window to advise you of their preference.

How long does a service last?

Typically a service in most churches or crematoria lasts around 20-30 minutes. A formal mass may take a little longer and we would expect this to be nearer an hour. Finally, burials can vary in length as they are weather dependent.

Where should I sit?

Family and close friends typically reserve the first couple of rows in a service. We recommend sitting nearer the front than the back of a service space in order to support the family and enabling late arrivals to discreetly fill back rows.

Where should I send flowers?

Often a family will express a preference for flowers - or charity donations in lieu of flowers. We recommend you keep an eye on notices posted in newspapers, or online or in the funeral director window so you are able to follow their wishes.
