Pre Paid Funeral Payment Plans

Pre-paid funeral plans enable you to pay for a funeral in advance at today’s prices. Personal requirements can be discussed, at your home or one of our offices, and recorded saving your family the added distress of making decisions at a difficult time in the future.

In November 2015 we were awarded a prestigious, national accolade for Customer Service after being praised by local people who bought a prepaid funeral plan from us during 2014/15.

How does it work? During a (free) consultation with us, we’ll review your requirements, help you select the most appropriate plan and arrange an agreed payment. Then, within 5 days of receiving your application and payment you will receive a guarantee certificate. Read on for full details of the plans and the guarantee.
