Planning & Pre-paid Plans

The safe, simple way to secure peace of mind, for you and your family.

What we can do for you

Although it may be uncomfortable, planning your own funeral is becoming more common and can relieve family and friends of difficult decisions at a stressful time. It can also help you come to terms with your own mortality as well as helping family and friends celebrate your life in the way you would prefer.  As an independent funeral director, our plans provide an easy way to organise your funeral arrangements with us, specify your wishes and take care of the costs in advance.  It's a thoughtful way to plan ahead and chance to avoid the rising costs of funerals.  Our funeral plans are provided by Golden Charter - the UK's largest funeral planning provider.  Over half a million people have already trusted them with their arrangements, so you can be sure your plan is in the best hands.

Over the years, we've learned that just as no two people are the same, no two funerals are the same either.  The last thing we want is for you to feel pushed into choices you're not happy with.  We can take care of your plan in a personal way.  With a plan in place you'll have the reassurance of knowing your family will receive caring service and support when it matters most.  When the time comes, you can rely on us to carry out your wishes to the letter.

Payments for your funeral plan are paid into the Golden Charter Trust.  The trust is gaurunteed to fulfill payment of your funeral.  More iformation is available at www.goldenchartertrust.co.uk

Beware, not all funeral planning schemes are what they seem.  If you're considering a plan, be sure to check that your chosen funeral director will agree to the terms.
