Types of Funeral Flowers and Sympathy Flowers

Funeral flowers and styles are numerous and there is confusion as to which funeral flowers or sympathy flowers to buy. Funeral Flowers should not be confused with Sympathy flowers which are sent to the home of the bereaved to express your sympathy and support before the funeral.

Name funeral tributes should be sent by the family, similarly for main casket sprays or coffin sprays. Friends usually send wreaths, posies and sprays. Funeral Posies are smaller in design than sprays and wreaths, and are often flowers given by children.

The gentle beauty of funeral and sympathy flowers helps you offer feelings of sympathy and comfort at a sensitive and emotional time. Same day delivery is available for sympathy flowers if you order before 12pm. For timed delivery to the funeral home, please select from our Funeral Flowers range rather than our Sympathy flowers . We need 48 working hours notice for delivery of our funeral flowers. Free Delivery on all Sympathy Flowers and Funeral Flowers.

  • Always loved and never forgotten .... rest in peace
  • With heartfelt condolences
  • You are in our hearts forever
  • Thank you for so many wonderful memories
  • Sleep in peace until we meet again
  • Good night, God Bless. You are always with us
  • We will always treasure the wonderful memories we have



  • God saw you getting tired, a cure was not to be, He wrapped you in his loving arms and whispered ‘come with me.’ You suffered much in silence, your spirit did not bend, You faced your pain with courage, until the very end. You tried so hard to stay with us but your fight was not in vain, God took you to His loving home and freed you from the pain?

  • Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day, Unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear.

  • Do not stand at my grave and weep, ?I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a 1,000 winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sun on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush, I am the swift uplifting rush. Of quiet birds in circled light, I am the soft star that shines at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there; I did not die.

  • God will link the broken chain, As one by one we meet again, In our hearts you will always stay, Loved and remembered every day?

  • I thought of you with love today but that is nothing new, I thought about you yesterday and days before that too, I think of you in silence, I often speak your name All I have are memories and your picture in a frame Your memory is my keepsake with which I’ll never part God has you in His keeping, I have you in my heart.
