Established in 1963, Cliff Bradley & Sons has gone from strength to strength, building on our reputation for providing a friendly, compassionate and professional funeral service to those in Gainsborough and the surrounding areas.
Arranging a funeral is one of the most stressful experiences you can undertake. Amid the emotion associated with the loss of your loved one, you will need to make choices and decisions that you hope would best reflect their wishes. We understand this, which is why we will give you the time you need to guide and support you through this difficult time. Our trained and qualified staff are always on hand to assist you in your time of need and help you with some of the more difficult decisions. We can help you with all aspects of the funeral arrangements, from placing announcements in papers to selecting a memorial.
When a loved one, friend or colleague passes, flowers can be an important part of the grieving process. Our talented florists can create the perfect arrangement for you, whether it be a traditional wreath or something more unusual. We will expertly guide you with care, helping you choose the right flowers to express your sympathy and thoughts. At a time of loss, it’s easy to become disenchanted. A simple arrangement of flowers can be a welcome reminder of happier days, evoking fond memories that provide comfort and the courage to prevail over grief. We will provide beautiful flowers with compassion and sensitivity.
Planning your loved one’s last journey is important and it is natural to want their last journey to be special. For many people the funeral cortege is one of the most poignant aspects of the funeral. Traditionally, the deceased travels in the hearse with any floral tributes laid each side of the coffin and the close family follow behind in a limousine. The cortege will take the route from the funeral parlour to the church, cemetery or crematorium and may pass locations of significance in the deceased life, such as their home or a favourite outdoor place. Our aim is to ensure that your loved one has a dignified final journey with its own personal touch.
There are so many ways to commemorate the life of a person who has died. After a burial, you may wish to choose a suitable memorial headstone for the grave. If you choose a cremation, and the crematorium you choose has a garden of remembrance, you will have the option of placing a memorial therein. Cliff Bradley & Sons offer a comprehensive memorial and monumental masonry service, personalised to whatever you need from new memorials, additional inscriptions or renovation of an existing memorial. Our experienced craftsmen design and prepare memorials and headstones ensuring the highest quality in their work.
Choosing a coffin is often one of the hardest aspects of arranging a funeral. For some families it is the most difficult, visual and emotional element associated with discussing the funeral arrangements. We recognise this and will offer as much help as possible in a caring and compassionate manner. Remember, this is a natural part of the grieving process. At Cliff Bradley & Sons Funeral Directors we offer a wide variety of coffins and caskets from the country’s leading craftsmen and manufacturers all of which use materials sourced from certified merchants.
Do you require a simple alternative to a traditional funeral that is both respectful and dignified? Our direct cremation service is a simple, dignified option in which your loved one is cremated without a funeral service or ceremony. Sometimes known as an unattended cremation, by removing the service, the family of the deceased or those responsible for arrangements can make substantial savings compared to traditional funeral costs. A full service funeral can be an expensive occasion that takes time and effort to arrange, often days or weeks.
