The best way to get in touch
At ARKA Original Funerals we make sure that you feel comfortable and unpressured about making decisions for the funeral of a loved one. We offer advice and information about the wide range of choices available for both traditional and green funerals, including Council and church-owned cemeteries, woodland burials, cremation, ashes interment and scattering. Encouraging you to participate as much as you wish, we help to create and style personal ceremonies, through the provision of ministers, or celebrants, and the fitting selection of music, vehicles and other poignant and personal touches. We are a dedicated team offering a professional service to the highest standards and believe that every funeral can be a unique experience, truly representing the life, beliefs, and wishes of the deceased, as well as their friends and family. Our branch located on Islingword Road is at the juncture with Hanover Street.

“Thank you ARKA for helping to make Mum's funeral such a warm and happy occasion. You were gentle, thoughful and kind from the beginning and I really appreciated your ability to listen and help us sort out what was the most appropriate way to celebrate and remember Mum. It was such a relief not to be in a gloomy funeral parlour and to have people who were able to understand the spirit and atmosphere we wanted to create around her memorial.”
