Oh Maysan and Joseph my deepest sympathy to you both and your families on your sad loss. Your dad was a lovely guy. I was so fond of him and your mum when you and your dear sisters were all young. He was kind and funny and always so supportive of Wilton School. He was also thoughtful and he always greeted me as a friend, teasing me when we met. I missed him and your mum when they left Hawick. Lovely lovely people who I knew in happy times and in incredibly sad times and who I will never forget. I will hold their memory dear always.

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.
