You can book a web casting via your funeral director, which can be recorded and provided as a USB or DVD, but currently, we’re sorry to say we cannot broadcast live.

As our lives get busier and friends and families spread out across the globe, it can prove difficult to come together to mourn the loss of a loved one. It is unfortunate that friends and relatives can sometime miss a ceremony for reasons like a hospital stay or long-term health issues.

Live Streaming

You can now ask your funeral director to have the funeral service streamed live online (a webcast), from either the East or the West chapel. 

There is a small, unobtrusive camera in each chapel, focused on the minister or celebrant giving the service. The chapel has microphones around the room to reflect the full ambience during the service.

For a lasting memorial, the service can be recorded: either just the sound (on a CD) or audio-visual (DVD). You need to tell your funeral director in advance of the service so they can arrange this for you.

How to book

You must pre-book this service at least 48 working hours before the funeral service. To book, you must be the person responsible for arranging the funeral. This is usually a family member. You must do this via your funeral director.

You cannot phone up the Bereavement Services team directly to book this service. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the service.

The booking process is simple. Working with your funeral director, you will be guided on how to log onto the service via a secure password. Your funeral director will guide you through the process and you are given step-by-step instructions.

There is a charge to have access to a webcast. You'll need to book with your funeral director at least 48 working hours before the service.
