There comes a time in everyone's life when putting measures in place for the inevitable is simply a sensible precaution. If you decide this is something you would like to do, we can help. Our funeral plans are a secure way to pay for our services in advance and you can make a contribution towards third party costs, as well as making your funeral wishes known. This ensures that when the time comes, loved ones are not left with difficult decisions to make and financial provision is in place. 

We understand what it means to plan your own funeral and the courage it takes. That's why we go the extra mile to make sure everyone who comes to see us to discuss future funeral arrangements is looked after sensitively and with the compassionate professionalism that has become a hallmark of our business. Our funeral plans are completely secure as all payments are held in whole of life policies where they are ring-fenced and cannot be used for anything other than your funeral. Our plans are provided by Ecclesiastical Planning Services which is part of the Ecclesiastical Group. 

Having served people in this area for generations, we know our community and we know our industry. We are proud to offer funeral plans arranged and priced locally. For a relaxed conversation about funeral arrangements or to request a brochure, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
