An innovative new way to guide families through personalised options
For many, their idea of how a funeral should be is still rooted in the traditions of the Victorian era, with a church ceremony, religious hymns, black attire and top hats being the norm.

Whether it's bespoke coffin designs and high-end catering from Oliver Peyton's funeral home, Exit Here, rainbow coloured, flower covered hearses, or Star Wars themed send offs - it seems anything can be 'the new black'.
In recent years, the funeral profession has responded to this trend by offering greater choice, including more burials and cremation options, personalised designs on coffins and unusual burial locations. Recommendations from the CMA and Scottish government also indicate that pricing transparency will become a legal necessity for funeral directors soon.
With many funeral directors now offering a wider variety of options with greater complexity in pricing, a new challenge has arisen. Funeral directors are faced with the difficulty of guiding families through an ever increasing range of choices, whilst trying to provide total clarity on all funeral costs with limited time.
