The ordering of the funeral flowers should be done 24 hours prior to the service but there are flower shops that offer same day delivery. The delivery of the funeral flowers and tribute can be done personally by a local florist, making it less stressful.

Online Ordering of flowers

When making an online order, you should give the name of the deceased, the address where the service will be held and a sympathy card message which will accompany the tribute for an uncompromised delivery to happen.
