Personalising the Funeral Service…for that personal touch

A funeral service should capture and reflect the life lived by a person. To do this, Somerville Bros Funeral Directors offers a number of memorial ideas which you may like to consider.

Photo Slideshow Presentations

Often following the eulogy, presenting a montage of photographs of a person’s life helps sum up and reflect the words which had been spoken throughout the eulogy. Many families are able to create a photo slideshow themself using slideshow computer software. Alternatively, our staff are able to assist you in producing a photo slideshow for you using our design software package.

Orders of Service

Many funerals have printed order of service booklets which contain the service order, photographs, hymn words, readings, etc. The task of printing these yourself is a very time consuming task if you do not have the appropriate equipment. At Somerville Bros, we offer a design and print service for orders or service, along with other printed media. Please contact us on (07) 5463 1155 to enquire about this service.

Releasing of White Doves or Balloons

The releasing of white doves is traditionally seen as a symbol of a person’s soul being carried to heaven. As the doves fly away, the sense of letting a person go and knowing they have entered into a place of peacefulness. Likewise, releasing of balloons symbolises similar feelings. Should you wish to use white doves or balloons in a funeral service, contact us and we will organise this for you.
