Planning ahead provides peace of mind

… and demonstrates Love and Consideration

For Your Family


A carefully pre-planned service can be the most comforting to your family as it spares them from having to face decisions that can be both emotionally and financially difficult at the time of death.

Reduce Stress and Uncertainty

By pre planning, you have peace of mind, purchasing a funeral plan helps remove the emotional burden and much of the financial worry from your next of kin at a time in their lives when they are least able to cope.

A funeral plan enables you to specify precisely what funeral you’d wish for, as opposed to leaving your next of kin wondering which send off you would have liked. Our funeral plans are supplied by Open Plan.
