Arranging Funeral Services
When you arrange a funeral service with Frank Jennings, the original Jennings family undertakers. We will look after all arrangements for you. As a Family business we use our vast experience to meet your requirements and guide you with compassion and care at this very sad time. After your initial contact we can arrange a meeting at our office, or at your home. We will agree a budget and work out everything in accordance with your wishes.
The main funeral service decisions that need to be made are:
- Would you like burial or cremation? We can then make all arrangements necessary on your behalf. Historically Kilbarrack and the local area’s have their own cemeteries like St. Mary’s Abbey in Howth and Kilbarrack Cemetery, both still accept burials in existing graves. New Graves are available in Fingal Cemetery and Glasnevin Cemetery(and other cemeteries within the Glasnevin Trust).
- Where would you like the Funeral to take place? Usually Funerals take place in a Parish Church, followed by either burial or cremation. We will discuss a date and time you would like to hold the funeral. We can organise a mass in the crematorium, with a member of clergy or civil celebrant for non- religious funerals. You can have funerals without references to religion, or a non-denominational service which can include some religious aspects. This type of service is usually conducted by a civil celebrant, and often takes place in a cemetery or crematorium chapel, followed by burial or cremation immediately following the service.
- Would you like a two day service, with removal the night before to the Church or one day service proceeding from the funeral home (place of viewing) straight to the Church? For non-denominational/civil funerals we can also organise to have a civil celebrant to conduct the funeral in the cemetery or crematorium chapel.
- Where would you like viewing to take place? This can take place at our funeral home, at a hospital, hospice, or nursing home mortuary, or at the deceased’s, or family member’s home, or a combination of the above. Wherever you prefer the viewing to take place, we will be able to arrange it.
- Obituary notice. With our assistance, we will write up the Obituary notice in any of the newspapers you would like (Irish Times, Irish Independent, Evening Herald, local papers and/or papers outside of the country
