MILL POND FLOWER FARM​

Flowers for Funerals, Memorials and Remembrance


Our flowers are unique, they are designed and created especially for your loved one.

They can be bright and cheerful, soft and reflective, simply green, full of the garden or a 

handful of hedgerow. We are happy to include flowers and foliage from relatives and 

friends, to make the tribute as personal and memorable as possible. We use only 

freshly cut flowers and foliage, arranged around structures of natural materials such as 

willow, twine and sheep fleece.


It seems that as soon as you start to look at anything to do with death or dying, somehow 

the language becomes hazy, probably because we find it hard to talk about death 

and dying. We don't want to think of it happening to us or anyone we care about,

 so we try to move it as far away as possible and hide it behind more acceptable words.

This isn't helpful when we're trying to provide a clear idea of what is on offer for 

funerals however, so below is a straightforward description of our funeral flowers 

and what they're designed to do. Planning the funeral of a loved one is hard enough 

without having to learn a whole new language at the same time! In reality, the flowers 

are just simply flowers, but the arrangements are designed to allow the flowers to be 

seen by mourners as the funeral progresses. It can be helpful to have natural beauty 

to focus on at such a sad time.


The arrangements below are just suggestions of what can be provided for a funeral. 

If you're not sure what you want, or have ideas you'd like to discuss, just give phone Paula 

to talk them through on 07411502798.


All our funeral flower arrangements are made using natural materials including branches, 

twigs, sheep fleece and moss. We can sometimes use fine metal wire for fixing arrangements, 

which is biodegradable but takes a while to break down.

Spray or Sheaf

Also known as a Hand-tied Sheaf, Floral Sheaves, Spray, Tied Sheaf

This is a bouquet of flowers that is arranged to have a flat back and be viewed from above or the side. Its shape is similar to a wheat sheaf, which is where its name originates. It can be placed on top of the coffin, casket or shroud, or it can be placed alongside, if there are already Coffin Flowers in place. A Sheaf can be any size and can easily be untied to be placed in water after the funeral.


Small sheaf £45

Large Sheaf £75

Coffin Flowers

Also known as Casket flowers, Coffin Topper, Double or Single ended spray, floral blanket, casket tribute, casket flowers.

This is a large arrangement that goes on or around the coffin, casket or shroud. It can have many shapes and be a small adornment or cover the whole of the person. Wicker coffins often have flowers woven into the sides and traditional coffins can also have flowers attached to the handles. 


From £120

Wreath

Wreaths are probably the most easily identified funeral arrangement. A wreath is a round or oval arrangement of flowers and foliage. At Mill Pond Flower Farm the flowers and foliage are placed into a base of birch or willow moss to help them last well. The flowers are seen from the side and the top. A wreath can sit on top of the coffin or go alongside. For many years, they were best known as funeral flowers, but are now increasingly popular as seasonal arrangements, particularly at Christmas.


Seasonal Wreath £85

Posy

Our posies are a small handful of scented flowers, simply tied with twine, raffia or ribbon. They can be placed on the coffin, casket or shroud, alongside, or in a tribute at the top or bottom of the hearse.

Posies are ideal as very personal tributes, or from children and young people. Funeral Directors are very careful to make sure that all flowers go with the person throughout the funeral. Posies are easy to pop into water at the wake or to take away to be pressed as a keepsake.  


Posy £10 each

(Does not include delivery)

Flower Heart

Our flower heart is made using a twiggy birch or willow base, and decorated with flowers and foliage that is supported by moss to keep it all moist and fresh. A flower heart is deigned to be viewed from above as it is quite a flat shape. It can be placed on the coffin, casket or shroud, or placed at the head or feet of the person. It will last for around 48 hours so can be taken to the wake or left on a grave.


Flower Heart £25

 

Urn arrangement

If you're having a Book of Rememberance, or a service without a casket, an urn can provide a focus for a service and s beautiful accompaniment for a picture or photo. 


From £70

(includes hire of vase, urn or vessel)

What our customers are saying

I would just like to thank you very much for the funeral sheaves you made for my wife's Nana's funeral today. Your flower arrangements were exactly what we could have wished for and included beautiful colours as discussed, we also liked the fact that both arrangements were slightly different but went well together.
