Arranging funeral music and other details
J T Byrne Funeral Directors aims to alleviate the stress of planning a funeral by providing guidance and a variety of options such as personalising the funeral music, organising a reception and printing commemorative stationary. We have over 20 years of experience as independent family run funeral directors in Thornton-Cleveleys and Lancashire, allowing us to provide a compassionate and knowledgeable service.
Offering a truly bespoke service
Each individual’s life is unique, and a memorial of that life should also be a unique occasion. No request is too big or small, and our compassionate and experienced team will do their best to ensure that we can fulfil your wishes whenever possible. From choosing funeral music to hosting a reception, we are here to guide and assist you in creating a personal, touching ceremony.
Choosing the funeral music
A funeral ceremony is intended to reflect the life of the deceased, allowing family and friends to pay their last respects in a manner that their loved one would have wanted. Funeral music can be a wonderful way to reflect the tastes, character and personality of your lost loved one, creating an uplifting or poignant atmosphere for the ceremony. J T Byrne Funeral Directors are part of the Wesley Music Scheme, which allows us to source a wide variety of classic and modern music; this means that you simply need to tell us the name of the song and artist in order to ensure a fitting musical tribute to your loved one.
Many families choose to order commemorative stationery as a lasting memorial of their loved one. These include orders of service which can feature a photograph of your loved one, a message or chosen verse. In addition being a guide to the service, they are also touching keepsakes. You may also choose to have thank you cards made to acknowledge the presence of those who have come to pay their respects, or an In Memoriam book that allows attendees to leave messages of support or memories of the deceased. We also offer bookmarks as an alternative to a full order of service. All of our options are reasonably priced and can be tailored to your requirements, so please do not hesitate to ask.
Tasteful receptions and catering
A wake or memorial reception allows attendees to gather, reminisce about the deceased and continue the grieving process. At J T Byrne Funeral Directors, we can book a venue in Thornton-Cleveleys and the surrounding Lancashire area, hire a catering service that suits your needs, or organise for catering to deliver to your home should you wish to host the reception there. We can also arrange for the catering invoice to be sent to us to settle on your behalf for a simple 10% additional fee.
