Funeral Planning

Thinking about your own funeral is never an easy thing to do, but planning ahead can bring real peace of mind and financial security.

When someone has recorded their personal wishes in advance it can greatly assist those who are responsible for making funeral arrangements at time of need. We recognise this, and offer a free service which allows anyone to discuss the specific funeral arrangements they would like for themselves with us. We then record those details for reference at time of need. We hold a copy at our funeral home and we can also arrange to send copies on your behalf to your executor or solicitor, if you wish. Remember, this is a free service and there is no requirement to pay for any aspect of your funeral in advance.

However many people we deal with also wish to make financial arrangements to pay for future funeral costs.

Pre-paid funeral plans
If you wish to make financial provision for the future, we can also provide advice and assistance. With a funeral plan, you can relieve your family of the financial stress and any worries about your funeral arrangements.
