Express Sympathy and Grief For Your Loved One With Grace Funerals’ Flowers

Flowers have been used for hundreds of years to express emotion, whether we are celebrating a birthday or commemorating a lost loved one.

In fact, the use of flowers as part of the grieving process and at the burial of a loved one is regarded as one of the world’s oldest forms of human rituals.

Grace Funerals has partnered with our local florist, Sympathy Flowers, to help you arrange beautiful florals that express grief, love, and respect for the deceased as well as sympathy and condolences for the bereaved.

We have a large range of floral arrangements and displays on offer to suit all tastes and budgets, however Sympathy Flowers is more than happy to work with you to create something unique.

Types of Funeral Flower Arrangements

Casket Sprays

Casket flowers are often referred to as sprays.

These elegant flower arrangements are designed to sit on top of the casket or coffin during the ceremony.

Following a funeral, they can also be buried, left on the gravesite, donated, or taken home.

Grace Funerals has a large range of casket funeral flowers to suit all tastes, from traditional white lilies to colourful, bold arrangements.

Reflection Flowers and Petals

During any part of the ceremony, you may like to take a moment of reflection, pausing to remember and honour the deceased.

These single-stemmed flowers can be handed out to individual guests to place on the casket during a time of reflection.

Flower petals are commonly sprinkled at the burial, as a final tribute and farewell.

Funeral Wreaths and Arrangements

Wreaths can be used on the casket and also displayed on a stand.

We offer a selection of funeral flower arrangements but can also work closely with the family to create something custom.

We can also help organise funeral flowers with a banner or ribbon if you’d like to add some meaningful words.

Custom Funeral Wreaths and Flowers

Each of our floral arrangements can be fully customised to meet your budget and unique requirements.
Whether you want traditional white funeral flowers, bright and colourful arrangements, or native foliage, we can customise your funeral flowers exactly how you wish.

We can also create funeral wreaths in a variety of shapes, such as a heart or cross, in any colour combination or flower type, including magnolias, daffodils, and lillies.

What Flowers Are Traditionally Used at Funerals?

For hundreds of years, the language of flowers has been used to express emotion, from grief and sorrow to sympathy and love.

The types of flowers used at a funeral is a personal choice, and Grace Funerals will help you create any kind of arrangement to honour and respect your loved one.

Some traditional flowers used at a funeral or memorial can include:


Available in a range of colours, roses can express sentiments of grief, sorrow, love, and grace, while a single rose represents everlasting love.


Orchids represent everlasting sympathy, while an orchid plant makes a particularly sentimental gift.


A pure white lily is majestic and peaceful, and one of the most popular choices of flowers for a funeral.


A bright and cheerful flower, tulips are elegant and attractive. White tulips in particular represent heaven and eternity.


In some countries, chrysanthemums are reserved only for funerals, representing grief and respect.
