Something to think about

You come into this world being held and loved and you should leave this world the same way


Meaningful funerals are rites of passage that help us move from life before a death to life after a death. They help families and friends support one another, embrace their feelings and embark on the journey to transcendence.

Admirable though tradition may be, we pride ourselves in our ability to be a leader and innovator in a constantly demanding profession. We are proud of the more than 20 men and women of the Carson family . We believe that each one is a caring, understanding professional who takes pride in helping people.

Join us in lighting a candle to honour the memory of people we loved and lost.
