At McDonagh Funeral Directors we work closely with every person and family to organise the funeral that meets the wishes and requirements of the deceased and their family. Our goal is to provide assistance and support throughout the entire process. We pride ourselves on providing a full range of services for you to avail of. We can be as involved or uninvolved in the funeral process as you would like.
We appreciate that coming to a funeral home can be an overwhelming and daunting task. We can arrange for all meetings to be held in your own home or at our homes if you would prefer. At McDonagh Funeral Directors we will always do our best to ensure that you are comfortable. We know this is an upsetting time for you and your family and we want to make the process as easy as possible.
Our services include:
At McDonagh Funeral Directors we always strive to provide an empathetic and caring environment. We are here to help you with all the arrangements, and any questions you may have, even after the funeral. We know that the passing of a loved one is a deeply personal and emotional experience but we hope that we can provide assistance and comfort during this trying time.
Every year at Christmas we hold a memorial service for all those who have passed away during the year. We invite back all the families we worked with that year to honour and remember the deceased. We are well aware of how difficult the first year after a bereavement can be. The first Christmas can often be the hardest time for loved ones. Our aim to celebrate the life of the deceased and to cherish their memories.
These memorial services are very emotional affairs. And while there may be sad moments, the service can often be uplifting to families. The love we have for our loved ones does not go away simply because they are no longer with us. Families gather to celebrate this love. The atmosphere is one of overwhelming understanding and support as many people realise that they are not alone in their grief. At McDonagh Funeral Directors we believe this Memorial Service can help families through the grieving process, by providing the bereaved with the opportunity to recall happy memories and celebrate the time they shared with their loved ones.
Every family that attends our Memorial Service receives a personalised candle and bauble that they can keep going forward. In this way, their loved one will be with them for all future Christmas festivities.
