Your Choice of Funeral

Funerals in the 21st Century reflect the many changes in the profile of the society in which we live.

We ensure that individual requests are reflected in the funeral arrangements of each individual client.

Please see the list below for some examples of the different types of funeral which we provide and click on each for more information:

Woodland Burials & Funerals
In response to London’s growing population and lack of space for new cemeteries, mature forests on the outskirts of the city are being developed as natural burial parks for woodland burials and woodland funerals. Forestry experts choose the gravesites so that they don’t disturb the primary root system of the tree. They also predict how the future growth of the tree will allow other graves around it.

Eco Friendly Funerals
Thankfully, funeral directors are now able to offer much more eco-friendly funeral options and we can offer many services which make much greener choices in terms of the environment. These include our Eco-hearse and coffins. We use the word ‘greener’ rather than ‘green’ very consciously. The carbon footprint of a funeral can be reduced in a variety of different ways.

Eco-Hearse
We pioneered the UK’s first all-electric Eco-Hearse in 2013. Nine years later in July 2022 we took delivery of our first full-size electric Nissan hearse. These hearses have proven popular with our clients, providing the option of a modern and environmentally friendly funeral in and around London.

Horse-drawn Hearse
Some people like to use a horse-drawn hearse for a funeral. Levertons uses a perfectly schooled team of horse breed - the Belgian Blacks. For the horse-drawn hearse it is possible to have a pair of horses or a team of four horses. You can choose between black or grey horses and we can guide you through the options.

Traditional Funerals
We have many options and suggestions we can make to you for a more traditional funeral style. As an example in terms of our transport, these include the use of our Jaguar limousines and hearses as our more traditional funeral transport. Others also like to include traditions such as having a funeral director walking and leading the way ahead of the hearse in a top hat. There are many options available to you which we can discuss.

Embalming and Viewing
Seeing a person again after they have died can be very important to some people, but not at all to others. It is important that a deceased person is presented for viewing in the best possible way and embalming can help with this. Embalming is a process of temporary preservation using the arterial system to distribute a solution of formaldehyde.

Cultures and Religions
With many years' of experience in a multi-cultural city, we have conducted funerals for all the major religions and many lesser-known traditions too as well as non-religious funerals. As a company, we represent no single culture, race, religion or nationality and will assist you in whatever requirements you have.

Themed, Bespoke & Custom Funerals
We are here to assist you in creating whatever funeral and day of remembrance is appropriate - however individual your requests may be. We can help you to create a funeral that reflects a person’s particular life passions or hobbies. Themes have included military, football, music, fashion, motorcycles or just asking people to dress in a specific colour.

Humanist & Non-Religious Funerals
There is no requirement for funeral services to be religion-based. Many people prefer there to be no religious content in the funeral and there are trained celebrants available that can arrange and lead a non-religious funeral ceremony. Whilst the term ‘humanist funeral’ is often used to describe a non-religious funeral, a humanist funeral will make no allowance for any religious elements within the ceremony.
Learn more
Direct and Simple Cremation
This pared-down service is designed for people who do not want a ceremony at the time of the cremation. The cremated remains can be returned to the family and a memorial service can be held at a later date. This type of funeral is the simplest and least expensive we offer, given that there is no formal ceremony at the committal.

My heartfelt thanks go to Craig and the team who took care of my Dad earlier this month. From start to finish it was perfect. Their care and professionalism was spot on.

The service we have received from Levertons has been empathetic, understanding and non judgemental. We dealt with Carmel and she was efficient, and thoughtful, making a difficult time, easier to manage. My uncle died alone, having lived a solitary life. As a family we had no idea of his wishes, but knew that a large busy funeral would not have fitted in with who he was. We opted for a quite non attended cremation, and it was arranged seamlessly, and efficiently, helping the family that remained, to have peace that he had some dignity at the time of death. Due to the distance, it was all managed online and over the phone, which meant easy communications to all the family. We have used Levertons for all family in London and would recommend then time and time over. Thank you from us

After what has been a testing couple of months, Leverton handled the funeral of my late Brother Stefan with compassion and dignity, and arranged for his ashes to be scattered at Golders Green Crematorium in the same place as his parents. I would like to thank them for their patience and kindness throughout this difficult time.

Kathryn was kind, patient and always flexible with arrangements. It's a compliment to say she was also entirely professional: when you're organising a funeral you're not usually at your most efficient, so it's essential to have someone who is. My thanks to her and her team.

I cannot recommend Levertons highly enough. Craig Parker was so helpful, and made all the arrangements for my mother's funeral, and his colleague Lorna Walkden ensured that everything went smoothly on the day. It mean that I could focus on the event, without worrying about the arrangements. A source of great comfort and reassurance at a very difficult time.

Highly recommended, thought Levertons were professional and dignified throughout the whole process of the funeral arrangements. My particular thanks goes to Lorna for her professionalism through our experience in dealing with Levertons
