Dove Release Funeral
For centuries man has used symbols to portray a message. The white dove is the symbol of faith, fidelity, peace and love.
At a funeral or memorial service, a dove release can be a peaceful and healing tribute. A beautiful way of expressing a final goodbye, of letting go. The releasing of White Doves can offer a feeling of peace and calmness, helping bring closure to family members of a lost loved one.
Release a single bird … or a flock … the choice is yours. All the companies below report the highest standards of care and training for their birds. As all the birds used are homing doves/white pigeons, they will fly back to their coups on the same day, and so you will only be able to use companies based in your region – there are many, so hopefully you can find one close to you.
