Types of Funerals

Horse Drawn Funeral


Funerals and ceremonies after a death are a tradition that have gone back thousands of years. They provide an occasion for people to show their love and respect to the person who has died.

Funeral cermonies allows mourners to express their grief and acknowledge the death and provide a way to say goodbye. All of which can be beneficial to the process of grief follwing a bereavement.

The ceremony can be as formal or as informal as you wish and it’s entirely up to you how much religion should play a part in the service. There are a number of different types of funerals available. B.Ince Funeral Directors are here to help and some of the services that we can provide are shown below.

Cremation or Burial?

One of the evolutions of funerals was the rise of cremation. When we first started in 1946, nearly all of our funeral services were interments; the deceased was laid out in their home, and we made a coffin to their size, with the burial taking place a couple days later. Over the years, this has changed, with cremation accounting for 90% of all of our services today.
