    Types of funerals

    Burials are the most popular form of funeral in Northern Ireland with a service at the funeral home or church with a family gathering afterwards. Cremations have grown in popularity in recent years with religious or non-religious services taking place at the local funeral home, church or alternative venues. All of our funeral homes are served by Roselawn Cemetery & Crematorium.

    Each of our funeral homes offers religious services for all, regardless of faith. We can also organise a suitable minister for those who have no church connections but still want this service. Please feel free to let us know of any special consideration and we’ll do our utmost to accommodate it. Alternatively, if you are looking for something a bit different, unique and more personalised or less formal than a traditional service, we can support and guide you to create a farewell that is a true celebration of the life of your loved one.

    Products & Services

    At James Brown & Sons Funeral Directors, we understand that funerals are incredibly personal so everything will be built around your needs by our experienced funeral directors and arrangers. Please do let us know if you have any special requests and we’ll do our best to help. We’ll listen to you and let you choose the level of support you would like, while guiding you through the practical and legal requirements.
