A peaceful and healing tribute

A dove release may take place at any funeral service or the burial of ashes.

Memorial dove release

White doves have, for centuries, symbolised peace and love. A dove release may take place at any funeral service or the burial of ashes.

We have an experienced dove handler who can release the dove in your presence, or who will help you if you’d like to release the dove by hand yourself. Many people choose to attach a personal message before the dove is set free.

The number of doves released may be significant to you. A single white dove symbolises the soul and spirit of the deceased, a pair of doves the rejoining of two departed souls or each family member may release a dove. We can release a flock of up to 100 doves.

The doves may be placed at the front of the Church or crematorium chapel during the service.
