  • Provide a service in accordance with the ICCM Charter for the Bereaved
  • Ensure that the service meets the needs of all faiths and religions and is responsive to the needs of every individual
  • Maintain a safe and attractive environment for burial and cremation
  • Conduct services in accordance with statutory legislation
  • Provide access to information and advice for the bereaved
