I cannot thank the team here enough. They made a very beautiful specialist display for my seven-year-old niece’s funeral. The attention to detail was incredible and Emily was so helpful, caring and considerate that it made what was such a difficult and emotional time a little easier. I would 100% recommend Persephone Violet
Ordering Sympathy Flowers Online
We use floriography (the meaning of flowers) to help you share a message with your choice of funeral or condolence flowers, even helping with the right words for a card if you need some help.
Contact us if you would like to discuss your requirements.
Where should the tribute be delivered?
We recommend that all floral tributes are delivered to the funeral director. If you do not know who the funeral director is we can usually find this information out for you. Delivering to the funeral director allows all the flowers to go together to the service or home address along with the coffin. We deliver 2-3 hours before the service takes place and will liaise with the funeral director on your behalf to ensure a timely delivery.
Church/place of worship or crematorium
We discourage sending the flowers directly to the church, crematorium or place of worship. There is not always someone on had to take the flowers and with often many services taking place they can be missed, lost or sent to the wrong service.
If your tribute needs to be sent to a residential address it is important to ensure that there will be someone there to be able to receive it. It is common for the funeral procession to leave from a home address and therefore flowers are sent to be displayed for the family prior to leaving with the hearse. If this is the case let us know what date to deliver on and by what time and we will do the rest.
What shall I write on the card?
There are so many things you can say on a funeral or sympathy card. It can be difficult to find the right words at such a tricky time. We have given some examples below for you to use or expand on:
- Always in our thoughts
- Memories are forever
- Always missed – forever in our hearts
- You may be gone but you are not forgotten love (your name)
- With fond memories of (name of deceased) love from (your name)
- Thinking of you at this sad time love (your name)
- May you rest in peace
- At peace with loved ones
- In loving memory
- Always remembered
- Loved and remembered
- You will be dearly missed

The funeral isn’t local can I order a tribute and take it with me?
Of course – we cannot deliver funeral tributes if outside of our delivery area but we can make designs for you to take with you.
A colour or flower is particularly important can we include this?
We will do our very best to include any flower that has special significance. Advance ordering is advised to allow us time to source the items needed. We will always work to the colours of the customer’s choice if there is a preference.
Can I specify when the flowers are to be delivered?
