Funeral Plans

As a totally Independent Funeral Director, we offer Funeral Plans from multiple plan providers. This means that we can offer you a plan that matches your every need and requirements, at a price you can afford.

Funeral plans are a way of looking to the future. Some, having gone through a bereavement themselves, want to relieve some of the stress of making funeral arrangements for their own family by making a funeral plan. 

Taking out a funeral plan also reduces the financial burden of a bereavement. In recent years, funeral expenses have increased rapidly, well in excess of inflation, as disbursements, which are the costs that funeral directors pay on your behalf, to the cemetery and crematorium for example, continue to rise.

We offer prepaid funeral plans by the most open and transparent funeral plan providers who deal solely with Independent Funeral Directors. The funeral plan can either be paid in entirety when the arrangements are made, or spread over any number of years to suit your requirements and budget. We can provide information and quotations on each payment method to enable you to make the decision of which would be the best option for you.

Below you can see some examples of how much a funeral plan could cost, but we can also tailor the plan to ensure that all your requirements are included.

The pre-paid funeral plan example packages in the chart below includes a £195 administration fee that covers the set up of the plan and administration to place the funds and hold them in a secure trust where they can grow to meet the cost of the funeral when needed.

Our aim is to enable you to say goodbye in the most meaningful and personal way
