Many Funerals in Durham Catered For

At Newrest Funerals, we deal with all sorts of funeral services in Durham. Whether you would like to be buried with a graveside committal prior to your coffin’s interment or would like a much simpler cremation service led by a secular officiant, we can help. Of course, many of the funerals in Durham that are conducted today have a religious tone to them. We’ll suggest suitable hymns and readings for a modern funeral service or put together an order of service with you that is much more traditional. It all depends on your preferences and the religious beliefs of the deceased, of course.

Please note that we deal with numerous Christian funerals in Durham of all denominations but we are equally at home helping to arrange Islamic funerals, Sikh funerals or Jewish funerals. In fact, our experienced team will have extensive knowledge of all the major faith communities in the UK and can arrange funerals accordingly. Furthermore, we can advise on how to book a live stream for your funeral if you would like one. This means that mourners who cannot attend in person will be able to follow the service remotely.
