Choosing flowers for a funeral or to express sympathy can be a difficult task. At The Real Flower Company, we can help you to get funeral flowers right. Our unique and wonderfully scented arrangements are hand crafted and styled by our expert florists just for you. Whether you want a funeral bouquet, a funeral wreath, a funeral sheaf or a funeral spray, we can produce a beautiful and fitting display to express your sympathy, love and respect at a time when words are not always easy to find.
All our funeral wreaths and sheaves – a simple and elegant hand-tied take on the funeral spray – are created to lie flat on a coffin or funeral tribute display. All are thoughtfully designed and carefully crafted by our expert florists to provide a fitting tribute and a reminder of the beauty and enduring qualities of nature at a time of sadness and loss.
Funeral Flower Arrangements and Tributes Delivery
All our funeral bouquets, funeral arrangements and funeral tribute flowers are available for next day delivery across the UK and can be sent directly to the funeral directors. They will be delivered with a personal tribute message attached by ribbon and a request that all packaging is removed before they are taken to the funeral. We recommend that the tribute is delivered to the funeral director on the day before the funeral. Please provide a phone number for the funeral director.
Choosing Funeral Flowers
As the ultimate symbol of spirituality and purity, white scented roses and white funeral flowers are a popular choice. Our expert florists can combine roses such as White O’Hara and Cream Piaget, Jeanne Moreau and Snowballet, or David Austin’s Patience and Purity – all grown on our sustainable flower farms – to make a white funeral arrangement tailored to your needs. Pink roses and pink funeral flowers traditionally express thankfulness to the deceased, and we also work with a range of wonderful pink scented roses. All our funeral bouquets, sheaves, wreaths and sprays combine roses with freshly picked herbs and foliage.

The world's most scented roses and flowers
Few modern cut roses feature any trace of scent. This is because most commercially grown flowers have had their scent gene genetically removed to increase their durability and longevity.
In contrast, we are passionate about curating and growing the world’s finest selection of scented cut roses that as well as being beautiful, boast an exquisite variety of scents. Our roses have their scent gene firmly intact just as nature intended!
However, even our flowers vary in scent intensity. So, we have created the scent rating scale below to help guide you to your perfect arrangement.
We offer most of our bouquets in four or five different sizes. The image below should give you an idea of how big each size is although the size varies a little for each design. For example, our ‘Simply’ range contains roses arranged head-to head so the bouquet may be slightly more compact than other designs.
