Planning Ahead

What is a funeral plan?

The passing of a loved one often prompts people to consider the provisions they have made for the future. A funeral plan is an easy way to pre-arrange the funeral you want and pay for the funeral director’s services in advance. A plan can save your family worry and expense, and help make things easier for your loved ones at a difficult time.

It’s an easy way to do something amazing for your family. Few people like to talk about their funeral, and our fully bespoke Independent Way Funeral Plan can make things easier for everyone – so that when the time comes, just one phone call is all that’s needed to activate your plan. Everything will then be taken care of, and carried out according to your wishes, relieving your family of the stress and financial worry they may otherwise have to face.

Everyone has different needs when it comes to funeral planning, so we make sure all our plans are as flexible as possible. When you get in touch, we will be happy to discuss your funeral requirements and tailor a plan to suit you. Rest assured, our plans are available to everyone.

If you already have a pre-purchased funeral plan and would like to transfer it to or nominate Smiths Funeral Directors, we would be pleased to talk to you about this

Testimonials

As a church organist, I have had a lot of dealings with funeral directors. I can honestly say that Smiths are the best I have encountered - when it came to my mum's funeral, they were absolutely terrific. Everything was done with not only tact and sensitivity, but also perfect efficiency. I would add that their charges are very reasonable. Heartfelt gratitude to them.

David Pattrick

On behalf of my family I just want to say a big thankyou to Smiths Funeral Directors. They made a very difficult task a lot easier. Arrangements were easy and we felt very comforted. We were kept informed every step of the way.

The day itself was handled professionally and personally. I could not give a higher recommendation.

A friendly well organised local family business that definitely know their business. Thank you to all your staff.
