Oh that I had the wings of a dove For then I would fly away and be at peace
- Psalm 55.6 -
"It had always been a wish of mine to give my late father a special send off. I mentioned I would like doves and was given the details of The White Feather Co by the Undertakers. From my first phone call I can say I was treated with the upmost respect, my calls were always returned, everything was clearly explained to me, including prices, and a package was made for me to my specific requirements, my payments were acknowledged and my packaged explained. The day arrived and everything was in place and could not have been better, it was the most surreal feeling holding the doves, prior to release, and gave myself and all the family a peaceful closure to what is a very sad event. I would highly recommend this to anyone thinking of doing it and I would certainly recommend this company. Thank you to everyone involved long may you continue."
The releasing of Doves offers a feeling of peace and calmness, helping bring closure to family members of a lost loved one. A unique heartfelt way to honor your loved one. We will accommodate each family's individual needs for a loving tribute. We understand your grief and your needs during this time of loss.
You can choose to release the doves by hand or from their baskets.
We will arrive, be ready and waiting prior to your arrival. Consider giving a loving tribute with or in lieu of flowers. A memory that will long be remembered in everyone’s heart.
A few words are read out by the dove handler about the symbolism of the dove just prior to the release; however you may choose to read a poem of your own for your loved one, something we can discuss with you.
Please also note that our baskets and cages are open to allow the viewing of the doves before release, rather than just seeing them as they come out to fly away.
