  • Demand for cremation has grown significantly in Ireland in recent times. In many respects it is exactly the same as the more traditional funeral rite, however there are some important and practical differences. When the funeral cortege arrives at the crematorium chapel, there can be a short committal ceremony. The options for disposal are:
  • Private Disposal.
  • Interment or scattering at a garden of remembrance.
  • Interment in a columbarium wall.
  • We will arrange and advise you on all the necessary documentation necessary in relation to the cremation.
