Pre-Paid Funeral Plans

 

The Shropshire Funeral Plan

 

Our pre-paid plans offer you more benefits than a savings account or life insurance policy. Not only do you stipulate exactly what you would wish to happen at the time of your death, thus saving your next of kin the anguish of decision making; but you have also financed our fees as listed in your plan paperwork. This means that you need not worry about increases in our costs at all - regardless of how long you live.  

You also make a significant contribution towards third party costs, again reducing the worry for your loved ones.

 

 

 



The Advantages of a Pre-paid Plan

 

You have complete peace of mind, knowing that you have made the decisions and have everything in order and lodged with us - your chosen funeral director.

You save your family the anguish of not knowing exactly what you would like to happen - it is completely sorted for them.

You can determine everything down to the last detail - for example: hymns, music, readings, preferences regarding floral tributes, donations, the return venue for refreshments, etcetera.

Each plan includes an allowance for third party costs, (disbursements), such as crematorium or cemetery fees, clergy/celebrant fees, and medical certificates for cremation - where applicable.

If you are moving out of your own private home into expensive nursing care and wish to use available monies; the purchase of a pre-paid plan is recognised by the Inland Revenue as legitimate expenditure and is non-taxable.

 

The Severn Plan

 

This is our most popular Plan, which includes the following:

  • Receiving you into our care from anywhere in the local area, at any time of the day or night.

  • Guiding your appointed next of kin, or executor, regarding registration of the death and other matters relevant to the funeral

  • Looking after your body in our exemplary facilities, with the finest of care until the funeral day.

  • Providing our calming Chapel of Rest, including washing and dressing in a suitable gown or your own clothes, according to your personal preference

  • Supplying a wood effect veneered coffin, with simulated brass handles and name plate, and an interior lining

  • Attending to all of the necessary arrangements and providing our professional funeral director, drivers and bearers for the funeral service

  • Supplying a Jaguar hearse with one following matching limousine. 

    The cortege may leave from a private address prior to the funeral service at a local church, if required, then proceed to a local crematorium or place of burial

  • Receiving flowers for the funeral, or charitable donations in lieu of flowers

 

A contribution towards third party costs (disbursements), such as crematorium or burial fees and the clergy/celebrant fee is also included in this plan. The amount is based on average costs and is intended to cover most of the usual disbursements, but they are outside of the funeral director’s control and cannot be guaranteed. There may be more to pay at the time of need. We are pleased to advise you accordingly. 

 

The Meese Plan

 

Providing an enhanced service, with the following variations to the Severn plan:

  • The supply of a top quality coffin, finished in oak veneer with a double-raised lid and panelled sides, and furnished with the finest interior linings and fittings

  • The supply of two limousines instead of one

 

The Tern Plan

 

This is similar to the Severn plan, but with the following variations:

  • Facilities and preparation for viewing are not included

    A plain basic coffin is supplied

  • The hearse will meet you at the local crematorium or cemetery

  • This plan does not include attending a service at a church prior to the crematorium

  • Listing of flowers or charitable donations is not included

 

The Personal Plan

 

A funeral is a unique and special occasion and many people have particular wishes. If none of the other plans suit your requirements then please let us know and we will prepare a personalised plan just for you, to allow for whatever services you require.
