Your Guide To Choosing Funeral Flowers

It’s so important to choose the right flowers for a funeral, but where do you start? When the family give instructions on a theme or variety of flower it can be much easier, but when you don’t have this, it’s down to you to pick a loving tribute. In this guide, we’ll show you everything you need to know about funeral flowers in Telford so you pick the perfect arrangement for a loved one.

Types of funeral flowers

First of all, you’ll need to decide on the type of arrangement you want, and there are several popular choices.

A funeral spray

This is one of the most popular choices for expressing sympathy. Sprays come in both single and double-ended arrangements, depending on your requirements. Double-ended sprays are often called casket sprays and sit on top of the coffin as a larger tribute.


Tied sheaves are usually sent directly to the funeral and are then redirected to the home of the bereaved. These are a more fitting alternative to cellophane-wrapped bouquets and can be designed in a range of colours and sizes.


These are a common choice for sympathy tributes and are usually sent to the funeral as a sign of respect. You can go for either modern or contemporary styles, as well as a range of sizes and colours.


Hearts are a more unique tribute and are often given to immediate family or the closely bereaved. Hearts are a loving tribute and can be designed in a range of colours to make a fitting tribute for anyone.

Funeral Crosses

Crosses are a traditional option usually chosen for religious funerals. These represent a more personal sentiment and are usually chosen by close family or friends. We can design a cross for you in a range of colours and sizes based on your requirements.

What message should be sent with funeral flowers?

Tribute cards are often difficult to write during such a heartbreaking time. A simple message with some heartfelt words will always be appreciated. Here are a couple of popular examples if you’re struggling:

  • With love and fond memories of _____ from ______
