Planning ahead for your funeral

For many people, pre-planning their funeral arrangements has become an important part of organising future events in their life, just like making a Will.

Many have experienced the deep sorrow a bereavement of a loved one can bring themselves and don’t wish to leave their funeral arrangements, at what can be a time of great stress, to their families. Who better to advise and assist them with all the necessary planning and arrangements than their local family funeral director who has an established trust and respectability within the community?

Funeral plans

We believe that our comprehensive range of pre-paid funeral plans, which are available only through independent funeral directors such as ourselves, offer you significant advantages over other plans.

Investing in a plan will help ease the worry about meeting the costs of the funeral and the arrangements. Payments into a scheme can be spread over a number of months or can be paid for with a one off instalment.

A guarantee that covers all our services

No matter how much our funeral charges may rise in years to come, once your plan is established, neither you nor your family will be asked for a penny more. It’s a guarantee that will give you total peace of mind and that your family will be spared what could be a financial worry.

A balanced approach to third party costs

There are some costs that we are obliged to pay on your behalf. These third party costs include the charges of cemeteries and crematoria, as well as doctors’ fees for cremation certificates, the fees of clergy or officiants and the costs of newspaper notices and memorials. The amount of this expenditure is not within our control and may require a further payment at the time of need.

Your payment is held with a view to maintaining a level of growth at least equivalent to the increases in inflation.

However, if at the time of need, the increase in the third party costs is greater than the growth, we would have the option to approach the family for an additional amount.
