As with our ‘at need’ funerals, with our pre-paid plans we like to start with a blank page. Then together we talk and we help you to find the best way for you you to say goodbye. Such an important rite of passage should be personal, and we are here to guide and support you.
A pre-paid plan (and indeed, our “Personal Wishes” pre-arrangement plans) lifts the burden of making funeral arrangements, to truly reflect the life lived, at the time of great emotion, from the family. Our Funeral Plans, like our funerals, offer a unique, bespoke service which is truly personal to the family in question.
For some people the choice of coffin is important. TV has highlighted the beauty of a woven bamboo or wicker coffin through a series of high profile funerals in recent years. Or maybe a simple cardboard coffin is what you would prefer which could be decorated by your friends and family.
For others it is the woodland burial which is most significant. With grave space in traditional cemeteries being at a premium and in limited supply, it can be seen as the most sensible option. Being at one with nature and in beautiful surroundings, it still gives family the opportunity to “visit” once in a while but removes the duty of maintaining a traditional grave and memorial.
Occasionally, families want to be very ‘hands-on’ and may wish to transport the coffin to the funeral in their own vehicle or assist with carrying and lowering the coffin. Others might want no funeral or mourning dress. Others might want a combination.
The important thing to us is that you get the funeral you want. For more information on our bespoke pre-paid Funeral Plans or Personal Wishes pre-arrangement plans, then please contact us.
