Types of funerals
Burials are the most popular form of funeral in Northern Ireland with a service at the funeral home or local church with a family gathering afterwards. Cremations have grown in popularity in recent years with religious or non-religious services taking place at the funeral home, church or alternative venues. We are served by Roselawn Cemetery and Crematorium in Crossnacreevy which is just southeast of Belfast.
If you are looking for something a bit different, unique and more personalised or less formal than a traditional service, Bairds of Antrim Funeral Directors can support and guide you to create a farewell that is a true celebration of the life of your loved one.
