SilverCloud Funeral Directors & Events


When we experience the death of someone we love, a funeral or memorial service fills several important needs.

Befitting Casket

A befitting casket can offer comfort to family and friends during a difficult time. Knowing that their loved one is being laid to rest in a respectful and appropriate manner can bring some peace of mind.

Funeral Hearse

Funeral hearses play an important role in the grieving process, providing a dignified and respectful means of transport for the deceased. They are also a symbol of respect and honor for the dead and their family. 

We have various luxury brands in our fleet of hearses like the Cadillac Escalade, R. Class 4matic  Benz, Lincoln Navigator, Cadillac Limousine, and Volvo.


Lying in state is a term used to describe the tradition of placing the casket or remains of a deceased person in a public or private area, usually of worship or the home of the deceased, to allow friends and family to pay their respects.

Arrangement of vault

The arrangement of a vault for a deceased person’s remains is an important part of the funeral services. We offer different types of vaults, including burial vaults and cremation urn vaults, which can be personalized to meet the customer’s needs and preferences.

Casket Bearers

Casket bearers are individuals who carry the casket during a funeral or memorial service. The number of casket bearers can vary depending on the size and weight of the casket, as well as cultural and religious traditions.

The role of the casket bearer is to carry the casket from the hearse to the location of the funeral or memorial service, and then from the service to the final resting place. This is often a physically demanding task that requires strength and coordination.

Brass Band

Today, brass bands continue to play an important role in funerals around the world. Their music helps to create a sense of solemnity and reverence, while also providing comfort and solace to those who are grieving. In addition to leading funeral processions, brass bands may also be asked to perform during the funeral service itself, playing hymns or other religious music that is appropriate for the occasion.

Embalming & Storage

Embalming preserves a deceased person’s body using chemicals and treatments. It aims to delay decomposition and create a lifelike appearance for funeral viewings.

The process involves cleaning and disinfecting the body, injecting preservative chemicals into the arteries, treating organs, and preparing the body’s appearance.

After embalming, the body is stored in a refrigerated unit until it can be viewed at the funeral home or elsewhere, preserving it for an extended period.


Cremation is a funeral practice where a deceased body is disposed of through burning. It involves subjecting the body to high temperatures, typically ranging from 1400 to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit, inside a cremation chamber or retort. This process reduces the body to its basic elements, known as “cremated remains” or “ashes,” which are then placed in an urn or container and given to the family.

Cremation has a long history and remains a prevalent practice today. It is preferred in some cultures like Hinduism and Buddhism, while burial is more common in others such as Christianity and Islam.


Tombstones are important markers in funeral services. They are typically made of stone, granite, marble, or bronze and bear inscriptions of the deceased’s name, birth and death dates, and sometimes a message or epitaph.

Tombstones serve as a way for families to remember and honor their loved ones. They can be customized to reflect the individual’s personality, beliefs, and interests. Religious symbols or favorite quotes can be included. Personal touches like photographs or special engravings can also be added.


An obituary is a written announcement of someone’s death. It includes a brief biography, funeral service details, and information about surviving family members. Its role in funeral services is to honor the deceased and inform others about the death.

The obituary also provides important information about the funeral service, such as the date, time, and location. It may include special requests from the family, like flowers or donations. Publishing this information ensures that people who want to attend the funeral have the necessary details.

Printing of programmes

Printing programs for a funeral service is an important part of the ceremony. It provides attendees with a tangible keepsake to remember their loved one. The program usually includes details about the order of service, the names of participants, and any readings or music that will be performed.

Moreover, printing programs honors the deceased and celebrates their life. The program’s cover often features a photo of the deceased, along with their name and dates of birth and death. Sometimes, a brief biography or obituary may also be included in the program.

Video & Photography

Video and photography play an important role in funeral services as they allow family and friends to capture and preserve memories of their loved one’s life. They can also provide comfort and closure during the grieving process.

In addition, some families choose to hire professional photographers or videographers to document the service. This can be especially helpful for those who are unable to attend or for those who want to revisit the memories later on.

Event Planning & Hall Decoration

Event planning is essential for funeral services to ensure a respectful and organized tribute. It involves selecting a suitable venue, coordinating with service providers, and managing logistics.

Decoration of the event hall plays a vital role in creating a peaceful atmosphere for mourners. Soft lighting, muted colors, and natural elements like flowers contribute to a sense of tranquility.
