What should I include in my funeral plan and who do I tell?

It is time to have that discussion! The one you have probably been reluctant to think too much about - planning your funeral.

We know it’s difficult and something most of us keep putting off but it is important and having plans in place will provide the reassurance of knowing you are guaranteed to get the funeral you want, everything will be paid for and your loved ones will be spared the worry and potential expense of arranging your funeral when you’re gone.

Our team at WRR Pugh & Son has many years’ experience in caring for the deceased and their families and delivering the funeral they want, so it makes perfect sense for you to sit down with one of our experts and talk through your thoughts and then we can provide a tailor-made plan in accordance with your wishes.

Reliable service

We are proud of our standing as an independent funeral director and when it comes to funeral plans, we use Golden Charter - a company established in 1990 and a provider of funeral plans which works only with independent funeral directors like ourselves nationally:

  • It is the only funeral plan provider recommended by The Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors.
  • It is one of the country’s largest funeral plan providers.
  • It has been trusted to provide the funeral arrangements of about three quarters of a million people.

Our costs for the service we provide as your funeral director after your death are guaranteed to be covered in accordance with the way agreed in your bespoke funeral plan. 

This includes services like making the necessary arrangements for burial or cremation, removal of the body, care of the deceased and possible preparation for a family viewing, advice on bereavement counselling and the certification and registration of death along with any other related documents, and the provision of a coffin or casket and vehicles for the funeral.

Other options

Personal touches can also be added as we talk through your wishes, like your choice of hymns, any other music requests, floral arrangements, personalised order of service and any environmentally-friendly funeral options you may like to consider.

We can also include other third-party expenses in your plan which are likely to be incurred, including the hire of a church or other venue, crematorium, cemetery, clergy or officiant’s fees and newspaper announcements.

Your funeral plan is easy to arrange and set up through us. We are happy to meet you at our premises or another location at a time to suit you and your tailor-made funeral plan comes with flexible payment options.
