At O'Connor Funeral Directors, we understand the passing of a loved one can be a difficult and emotional time for families and friends involved.The funeral services we offer will be carried out in a professional and caring manner.
We have vast experience in religious, civil and humanist funeral services. Each funeral is unique to the individual and we strive to achieve the funeral service which is both meaningful and personal to each family. Funerals are an opportunity for all of the deceased's family and friends to say their final farewell.
When you first contact us, we will arrange to meet with you at our office or in your own home, in order to make the necessary arrangements.
Below is a selection of the standard aspects of a funeral that O'Connor's Funeral Directors organise and oversee.
We can arrange removals from the deceased's home, hospitals, hospices and nursing homes. Our modern fleet of Mercedes hearses are available at all times.
We provide a full death notice service that informs all relevant local media organisations. We will then assist you with drafting a death notice and arrange for its publication in your chosen medium.
Death notices are accepted by the following:
1. National newspapers or local newspapers
2. RIP.ie website
3. Local radio stations
Home wakes remain the most popular way for a family and a community to say goodbye to a loved one. O'Connor Funeral Directors will be there to assist you with the organisation of a home wake on behalf of grieving families.
We can organise singers, organists or any musicians for any funeral services depending on the preferences of the family.
