Funeral Home

Visitation Room

Our main visitation room is spacious and has ample seating for family and friends, to sit with the deceased as visitors offer words of sympathy.

We have preserved the original historical stone wall. The alcove can be adorned with flowers or a photo of the deceased at the request of the bereaved.


We want our visitors to feel welcome and comfortable in our Funeral Home. Many bereaved family and friends want to be able to facilitate visitation of close friends and relatives in the home of the deceased. We support this when requested.

Many of our bereaved families and friends choose the funeral home as a more practical option for the removal, having had a 'wake' in the private residence of the deceased. This caters for the larger crowds of people, who often attend funerals in our area.

In the Funeral Home we have a comfortable and warm foyer, where visitors can meet, and sit in comfort. The main focal point in the foyer, is the fireplace with welcoming fire. Visitors can attend to extra details by talking to a member of staff in the adjacent office.

Prior to the closing of the coffin or casket visitors move to the foyer and comfortable waiting area with leather couches to allow immediate family and special friends take private time with the deceased in the main visitation room, prior to saying their final 'Goodbye'.

For those wishing to take some private moments away from the main funeral home, we have a sitting room. Staff can ensure privacy of persons wishing to take time out.

This second visitation provides the comfort of a living room, with comfortable chairs and armchairs. This room is often used by families and friends of the deceased for private memorials, and ceremonies. It is also used where groups of visitors at a funeral wish to wait and reminisce while others visit the main room.

Our room for making funeral arrangements affords family and close friends a private place to discuss all details pertaining to the funeral. Our competent and experienced funeral directors will take you through all details of planning the funeral, explaining everything to you. You can view coffins, caskets and urns in the dedicated room close to the arrangement office.

The room also facilitates visitors wishing to have a word in private with a staff member, or to make a donation to a charity of choice.
