How to Plan a Funeral
Planning a funeral service is a uniquely challenging experience, as anyone who has suffered a bereavement will know. However it can also be uplifting and help with processing the grief, allowing you time to think about your loved one fondly, the things they loved and the things you loved about them and how all this can be incorporated into their memorial.
The first stage is to choose a funeral director. Working with a local funeral director in Pontypridd is advised as they will know the area well and have close links with the crematorium, hospitals, cemeteries and the local council, making them able to handle much of the organisational details for you. We also advise choosing a funeral director that owns and operates a local funeral home that is easily accessible to you so that, should you want to go and visit your loved one before their funeral, you will be able to get to them. Church Village Funeral Services has been based in Pontypridd for over 25 years. Our funeral home is warm and welcoming, with several private rest rooms, allowing you to visit with your loved one in peace.
Your funeral director will guide you through the process of planning your loved one’s funeral, with respectful and sensitive advice which comes from many years of experience. You will be asked whether you would like an obituary notice in the local newspaper, which your funeral director will arrange. You will also decide on a funeral date, usually a couple of weeks later, depending on the availability of the crematorium or cemetery. Whether you decide on a burial service or a cremation, your funeral director will be able to arrange this for you.
We provide a fleet of traditional black funeral cars and limousines to transport the deceased, the family and any clergy from the funeral home or other location to the cemetery or crematorium. Our funeral cars are smart and comfortable, receiving full valeting before each funeral. To find out more about our funeral cars, visit our page.
Religious, Non-religious or Humanist Funerals
All of our funeral services, whether religious, non-religious or humanist will be conducted with the utmost care and respect for both you and your loved one. If you would like for us to help you find a suitable officiant for the funeral, we can advise you and put you in contact with some of the most experienced officiants suited to your preferred style.

Or, if you plan on scattering the ashes somewhere meaningful, we stock scattering tubes from basic cardboard to more detailed designs in a range of materials that can be kept as keepsakes if you desire. All of our urns, coffins and caskets come in affordable options to suit every budget.
When it comes to making a funeral truly personal to your loved one, you have plenty of opportunities to tailor it to suit not only your loved one, but your budget as well. Elements such as funeral flowers, funeral stationery, musical choices and the funeral order of service are just some of the opportunities you have to add small or big reminders of the person you are saying goodbye to, whether it’s their favourite song, colour or requesting that all mourners wear a football scarf from their favourite team, you have complete control to make your loved one’s funeral a day that will stay fondly in people’s memories and will help them to truly celebrate their life. For advice and suggestions, your funeral director can give you guidance from their vast experience.
Flowers are an important part of the funeral service. Whether in the form of wreaths, bouquets or garlands, a floral tribute is a beautiful way to remember your loved one. For some of our funeral plans, we can provide flowers for the coffin, however for additional flowers you will need to engage the services of a florist. Your funeral director can put you in touch with local, recommended florists to provide lovely, bespoke arrangements for your love one’s memorial.
