Accommodating cultural and religious needs

Funerals are a deeply significant process, representing an important step in the journey of living without the person we’re saying goodbye to. Whatever your needs are within the funeral service, we will implement those wishes to the highest standard, including spiritual or secular accommodations.

Organising floral tributes and in-memory donations

A beautifully arranged floral tribute is a wonderful way to honour a person who has died. We take care of every step of the process, from commissioning the florist to distributing the arrangement. Our team also manages donations in memory of a loved one, directing funds to a nominated charity or family of the deceased.

What our families have said

I’d like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to everyone at Hopkinson. Every part of what was a painful process has been totally pain free. Your professionalism and friendliness is the perfect combination. The attention to detail and respect shown to my husband by all of the team was outstanding. For all of this you have my warmest thanks and I rest assured that you’ll be there to care for me in the exact same way.

What a fabulous family run business. I was unfortunate enough to lose both my Dad and Mum within 6 months of each other. They arranged everything and did so so beautifully. Thank you so much xx.
