Thorncliffe Cemetery and Crematorium - Hindu Funeral Photographer December 2018

This particular funeral was a Hindu Funeral, which was very beautiful and it took place at Thorncliffe Cemetery and Crematorium in Barrow-in-Furness. Cumbria. The day started at the Co-op Barrow Funeral Care to film the family arriving and the horse and Carriage as it left. Then it was on to Thorncliffe Crematorium for the ceremony. As is custom, this was an open coffin funeral with a lovely Hindu ceremony involving lots of flowers, butter and other traditions. The care and preparation was incredible, truly beautiful to watch and record on behalf of the family and was probably one of the most intricate ceremonies I have had the privilege to attend. This was followed by the wake which took place at the Chetwynde Hotel

GreenAcres Epping Forest, Essex - Funeral - November 2018

GreenAcres Epping Forest, Essex - Funeral - November 2018

This was my first visit to GreenAcres Epping Forest for a Funeral and this is a truly beautiful location for a ceremony. Amazing woodland surroundings and the woodland hall and courtyard were breathtaking. Such a unique venue for a Memorial Service.

I was there to film the ceremony of a lady who had passed away in her early 40’s due to cancer. So so sad! I was filming on behalf of her children with the idea of capturing the ceremony and tributes so that once older they could view the film and gain a little more of an understanding of the day and how loved she was.

It was really nice working with Funeral Director Stuart Poulton for the first time and Funeral Celebrant Sally McManus who very skilfully and lovingly led the tributes on the day.

After a busy we were back in Southampton for another funeral. This time we were at Southampton General Hospital for a quick memorial service and Buddhist ceremony. Most of the family lived in China so we were asked to both film and photograph the ceremony so the family overseas could see the ceremony for themselves after the editing had been completed.

I concentrated on Funeral Photography and Dave, my trusty cameraman, was responsible for the Funeral Videography. Between us we captured the whole event and then uploaded everything for the family to view in China.

“Mrs P” recently passed away but earlier in her life she was a dispatch driver in World War ll where she was responsible for delivering important messages and no doubt encountering plenty of danger along the way. After the war she continued with her fascination and love of motorbikes, so it was fitting that her coffin arrived on a stunning full length Trike hearse. Brilliant!!
