Dignity Funeral Plans let you pay for your funeral in advance and at today's price. It's a way of taking control of the unexpected, setting out the arrangements and limiting the costs by paying for the services included in the funeral plan upfront.

After the funeral I received this email:
“May I just say that your fathers funeral service was quite beautiful in its sincerity and simplicity and just the way I hope my family will see me off, but as you say, I'm in no rush! You certainly did him proud.”
I think it says it all. Thank you so much.
The staff were so efficient, caring and respectful.
At a time when you are feeling overwhelmed, everything was done for us, nothing was too much trouble, our wishes were followed perfectly.
The funeral itself was lovely, our mother was looked after and treated with the utmost respect.
We still are. But at all times Chris supported us.
Organising the funeral Chris helped with everything and did not try to sell us little extras.
On the day of the funeral Chris and his team of helpers and drivers did everything they could .We felt cared for and not rushed.Altbough a very traumatic experience with Dignity Funerals and the help and support they gave us from the first time Chris came to see us to the memory book which exceeded our expectations and is a family treasure now-Dignity was a caring service.
