Making use of our chapel

of rest and private rooms


At J T Byrne Funeral Directors, we understand that you may wish to say goodbye to your loved one in your own time and space. We provide a private chapel of rest where you may see your loved one in the days before the funeral. We are able to offer a sensitive and professional service to help you through your grief.


Viewing your loved one

Our private chapel of rest is a peaceful, non-denominational space where you can spend time with your deceased loved one in the run up to the funeral, laying photographs or personal memorabilia as a sign of respect. Our chapel of rest is open to you between 8.30 am and 4.30 pm on weekdays, you may visit without a prior appointment. At weekends and early evenings, we insist you make an appointment if you wish to visit.



Placing personal items

Many people may wish to place a personal item such as a piece of jewellery, a letter, card, picture, or favourite book with their loved one as a last act of respect and devotion. J T Byrne Funeral Directors encourages this thoughtful act, and are happy to help you honour your loved one in any way.
