At Farrell-McCartan Funerals, we deeply understand the profound significance of funeral planning and the emotional complexities it entails. Cremation has become a popular choice, and we offer flexible options for conducting the service. Whether your preference is a crematorium chapel, a church, or another meaningful venue, we prioritise honouring your unique wishes. We can assist in selecting the right officiant to conduct the ceremony, whether it's of a religious or non-religious nature.

During the service, guests can gather outside or take their seats in the chapel before the arrival of the coffin. Personal touches like hymns, songs, eulogies, and readings can be thoughtfully included. At the service's conclusion, you have the choice to close the crematorium curtain or leave it open for final respects to the coffin as you exit. Deciding how to handle your loved one's ashes is a deeply personal decision, and we stand by to offer guidance and support as you explore your options.


Planning a funeral can be an emotionally trying experience, and our primary objective is to provide compassionate support and guidance during this difficult period. Our dedicated team is readily available to assist you in arranging a funeral and burial at a suitable cemetery, graveyard, or burial ground, complemented by a service in a church or chapel if desired. We firmly believe in tailoring the funeral service to align with your personal preferences and beliefs, whether you lean towards a formal or informal ceremony, or a religious or non-religious service.

We recognise that the burial process can be overwhelming, and our compassionate team is here to address any questions or concerns you may have.

Green Funerals:

While there is no universal industry standard for a "green" or "eco" funeral, we can help facilitate your loved one's final resting place in a natural burial ground. These eco-friendly funerals can still incorporate faith-based elements and offer environmentally conscious coffin and ashes casket options. A committal ceremony can be conducted at the graveside, and flowers can be thoughtfully placed.


For those seeking simplicity or facing budget constraints, unattended cremations provide a more cost-effective option. This choice involves a straightforward cremation process without a formal funeral service and is typically unattended, allowing you to bid farewell to your loved one in your own way.

Even without a formal service, you can still arrange a private memorial service or a celebration of life before or after the cremation to honour your loved one's wishes. We are here to assist you in determining if an unattended cremation is the right choice for your loved one and to provide additional information to facilitate the organization of such a service.
