Hi all.
Can anyone please recommend a local Florist who does Funeral flowers and can deliver to the Funeral Parlour?
Thanks in advance.

I would guess that any Interflora florist would deliver to a funeral parlour.

Thanks for your reply Salmon, I know Interflora will provide and deliver. I was hoping that I could use a local Florist who was not part of the Interflora group. Over the years Iv received Interflora flowers at birthdays...I was never too impressed at the mix of flowers....one year my sister ordered White Lily and pink Roses bouquet from a Wallasey Interflora florist...it arrived as Orange Roses and fern...no lilles! Orange Roses are not as easy on the eye!! I never complained as I had a child in hospital at the time so I was pre-occupied
So Interflora is off the menu!
Im sure there must be Florists in the area who I could use.Even if I have to pick the flowers up and take them to the Funeral Parlour myself. Im hoping someone on here may know. Thank you.

Theres a flourist at the back of the market hall Liscard, she's brilliant and reasonble prices too. I swopped to her after using a well known one in Wallasey for years, because I got fed up with some of the flowers looking like they were on the turn. But what really did it for me was when my Dad passed away I was in there looking at the arrangments, and the lady serving me was huffing and puffing because I was taking too long to pick. The shop was empty at the time so it wasn't as if she was run off her feet. P&H won't ever get my money again.

Thanks guys....irony is it was Peaches and Herbs that did the Orange Roses! My sister sent them to me, she lives in Berkshire. She asked me if they were okay and if they were Lillies and Roses as she asked for them specially, my daughter was very poorly in hospital at the time and my sister also sent her flowers too, they were not what you would have expected for a young girl,they looked like it was a couple of cheap mixed bunches put together, in fact I was really disappointed as my sister must have spent around 50+ on the two tied bunches.They looked like it was a mix of all they had left,all were in their prime, no buds. They lasted less than a week. I think you pay a lot for Interflora and you just dont know what you will be getting as they always say if a flower is not available they will substitute...okay if its a lovely bloom or two...but they can substitute as much as they like just to get rid of up to date blooms. That's why Id rather go to a small Florist and see what I'm getting. I will check all the options you have all kindly suggested. Thanks a million guys.xxx
