Sending flowers has long been an expression of sympathy. In fact, it is one of the oldest funeral traditions, dating back for thousands of years; it is classed by the Guinness Book of World Records as the oldest form of human ritual.
Floral arrangements can help to convey emotions or feelings when words fail, as an expression of love, respect or sympathy. As well as this, they can potentially bring some small comfort to the loved ones of the deceased, while adding some softness and beauty to funeral proceedings – which can balance some of the heavy sadness of death. We would urge our customers to think carefully about funeral flowers, as this can give a really positive focus.
At T Allen we don’t provide floristry ourselves, but know a number of brilliant florists who we are happy to recommend to you.
If you have a specific enquiry or want to know more about the types of funerals we can offer, you can get in touch with any member of staff across our Medway funeral branches. We operate mainly in Strood, Rochester, Gillingham and Rainham, but are also happy to carry out funerals in other areas, and are always on hand to help with any funeral queries you may have.
