Time to make a plan with your Funeral Directors in Hornchurch

Planning pre paid funerals in Hornchurch is easy! Allow your local funeral director’s in Hornchurch to talk you through the options.

Low cost funeral planning

When you decide on a pre-paid funeral plan you are able to plan your funeral as you would wish it as well as easing financial burden and emotional stress on family and friends when the time comes and many of our Hornchurch clients are pleased that they are able to freeze the price of the funeral that they choose, knowing that they will incur no further price rises, regardless of how many years ahead that funeral might take place and that all their last wishes will be carried out exactly as they specified.

Funerals in Hornchurch – the figures say it all!

With the average cost of a funeral rising by 10% every year, arranging a pre-paid funeral plan makes a lot of sense. The average cost of a basic Essex funeral has risen for the 11th year in a row and now stands at approximately £3693.00 and increase of more than 90% since 2004, according to the Sun Life Cost of Dying Report 2015. External factors have to be absorbed into these rising costs such as the increase in cost of land for burial sites, higher wages for crematorium staff and grave diggers, maintenance of crematoriums as well as the rise in fuel prices and cuts to local authority budgets leading to a rise in crematorium costs.

Our standard pre-paid funeral plan

Working alongside Golden Charter Trust we deliver the most comprehensive low cost funeral plan available. Our very popular Independent Way Standard Funeral Plan will allow you to decide on all aspects of your funeral plan which may include:

  • Flowers
  • Funeral vehicles
  • Music
  • Dress code

And once the funeral plan is in place you will not be asked for another penny and most importantly, after your death, neither will your family.

Bespoke or Tailored funeral planning

Opting for something more detailed and unique is also an option when you choose a tailored funeral plan. This type of funeral plan will enable you to specify as much and as little as you like according to your budget, from flowers to unusual burial settings, whilst still fixing the cost of those services at todays prices.

  • Once only payment
