Dressing the Deceased

When saying goodbye to a loved one, most people prefer them to wear their own clothing.

Your loved one wearing their own clothing is absolutely fine. We’ll discuss clothing with you and let you know if there are any changes you need to make to the chosen outfit.

If you’re unsure what clothing to choose, here are some ideas that we’ve seen over the years:

  • Wedding dress/Wedding suit
  • Football strip/favourite football team colours
  • Military uniform
  • Motorcycle leathers
  • Attire from a favourite hobby (e.g. equestrian clothing)
  • Pyjamas
  • Every day clothes
  • A favourite outfit of the deceased

If personal clothing isn’t the right choice for your loved one, we can provide gowns for them to wear with each of our coffins.

If you’d like to talk about clothing choices for your loved one, feel free to call our team on 01476 594422.
