Funeral Flowers FAQs
Where should the funeral flowers be delivered?
In most instances, tribute deliveries are directed to the funeral director prior to the funeral, this is recommended wherever possible and allows the undertakers to arrive at the funeral destination with the flowers and the coffin together. Most often deliveries are directed to the funeral directors where the deceased may be at rest prior to the funeral service. Delivery to a funeral director is recommended wherever possible as most of the flowers will be delivered to the undertakers allowing them to arrive at the service or home address together with the coffin. We usually deliver at least 2 hours before the funeral takes place.
