We’re currently offering enquirers and clients the opportunity of having a professionally prepared free funeral plan for your own service, in consultation with a trained and authorised celebrant. It is normally £75, but we are able to offer it to you at absolutely no cost and with no obligation whatever. Please do ask for our Guide to Choosing a Prepaid Plan at the same time -we will only call you about that if you wish it, otherwise, the phone number is just for the celebrant to call and discuss things with you.
What do I need to do to get a Free Funeral Plan for my service?
Just fill in the enquiry form below, for you don’t need to speak to us about funeral plans if you don’t want to. You don’t have to ask for our Guide to Prepaid Funeral Plans. While we do need your phone number for the celebrant, if you don’t want a call from us, just say so, it is not a problem.
We’re here to help not push – though there are lots of benefits and bonuses to getting our free advice if you don’t have a prepaid funeral plan already.
Your Free Funeral Instructions – Normal Price £75.
Imagine, if you will, the day of your death – hopefully, a day many years far in the future. What a difficult stressful and challenging time for your close family. So many decisions to be made – and so many viewpoints on each decision. Setting up a prepaid funeral plan is a start, but there are so many other things to arrange. So much to think about. So many questions to answer. So much pain.
Take at least this away from them and let us arrange for a professional celebrant to work with you and then write up your free funeral plan service instructions. The celebrant can also offer these additional, and entirely optional, services which will make your passing far more comfortable to your family and friends.
Writing up your Eulogy:
Once the free funeral plan of your service has been organised, consider the eulogy. That is the sometimes embarrassing bit at a funeral service where someone who clearly knows very little about the deceased tries to give a brief talk on their life story and achievements. Even where the family is involved the children often know next to nothing about the first third of your life. So why not do get professional help to set up a eulogy to remember? It can make such a difference to people’s memories of you, and enjoyment (if that is the right word!)
The special price of £75 is a tiny fraction of the overall cost of your funeral – even with one of the most economical funeral plans we can find for you, and it will make the occasion far more memorable and enjoyable.
How about this Growing Trend?
A Living Funeral or Celebration of Life.
How often do you hear loved ones say “If only I’d said I loved them before they died” or “The greatest regret I will have for the rest of my life is not having said“
How sad it is that what has been left unsaid is so often a source of such regret.
Well, it needn’t be.
The answer lies in the concept of a Living Funeral or Celebration of Life. This is where a life is honoured and celebrated while the individual is still alive. Why not enjoy the celebration of your life together with those family and friends who all mean so much to you?
The star of your own day.
There could be many ways in which you could consider adding a Celebration of Your Life. Maybe you or a loved one are nearing the end of your life. Perhaps suffering from a terminal illness. Or in the early stages of a degenerative mental condition, such as dementia.
Either way, wouldn’t it be just be good to celebrate your life with loved ones while you’re still able to enjoy the occasion? Whatever the circumstances, whatever the scale of the event, one thing’s for sure – you will be the star of the day. It could make a truly memorable gift too.
A truly individual celebration.
It can be a religious or non-religious event. It can be organised by you or by your family. And of course, you can invite as many family and friends as you wish.
A Celebration of Life is completely personal and be casual or a formal affair. It’s a party with everyone you love. It’s up to you and your family to decide on the venue and the order of events. You can include features that are often part of a traditional funeral, such as a eulogy. You may wish to give a speech, or others might wish to. Some might want to read their favourite poems, serve their favourite food, play their favourite music.
Of course, you can include a memory table of photographs, and you may also wish to have a letterbox to post final wishes. Don’t forget that this is your last chance for a party!
How does a Celebration of Life work?
Your celebrant will guide you through the planning process with a series of questionnaires. On the day they can host the event for you, like a ‘This is Your Life’, with –
- Stories and tales being told by loved ones and friends of times together.
- Music that has meant something to you through your life being played.
- Poems and readings.
- Personal Tributes.
- Photos or PowerPoint presentations.
- Personal ‘goodbyes’.
- Make a speech.
- Hand out messages that you have found hard to say in life, asking loved ones not to be open till after you’ve gone.
- Enjoy your favourite meal.
Enjoy this final – or not so final – time spent together with those you love.
Fee for planning and hosting – £245.
