  • If you choose to arrange the funeral with us, you will be given the option of a complimentary Funeral Notice. We will set it up for you using the details discussed during the arrangements. All we need is an email address.

The staff at Charles Wood went out of their way to ensure that we could give Dad the best send off possible in these difficult circumstances, they helped us find a replacement vicar for the church service and advised of all the options at the crematoriums in the area in order that we could invite all Dad's close family members. Their help and advice was invaluable at what was a very difficult and upsetting time for us.
