By taking some time now, you can provide both financial and practical help to your family, saving them worry and expense and making things easier for your loved ones at a difficult time.  Alternatively you can simply request that we place your instructions on file until such time as they are needed and then the funeral costs will be charged to your estate.

A pre-planned funeral allows you to plan your funeral in advance including as much or as little detail as you feel appropriate.  You may wish to give us basic details and your family or friends take care of the other arrangements at the time.  All details discussed will be put in writing and sent to you and    H. J. Paintin would also retain a copy of this on file.

A pre-paid funeral plan allows you to plan and also pay for your funeral in advance.  H. J. Paintin Ltd offer pre-paid funeral plans from Golden Charter, the UK’s leading independent funeral planning company.  We would be pleased to send you a brochure with details, without any obligation to proceed.
You choose the funeral you want and fix the cost of your funeral director’s services at today’s prices.  There are some costs and fees which we pay on your behalf known as disbursements.  These include church fees and the charges due at the crematorium and cemetery.  We also pay two doctors’ fees for the completion of medical certificates for cremation, clergy, minister or other officiant’s fees for conducting a service.  If you wish you can also include the cost of newspaper notices and memorials.  As these costs and fees are beyond our control we may require a further payment towards these at the time.

You can pay in full or spread the cost over monthly instalments by direct debit.  The money you pay is held in trust supported by Golden Charter Funeral Plans until such a time it is called upon, it is not held by H.J. Paintin Ltd.

If you would like to know more about the benefits of this or proceed with either a pre-planned or pre-paid funeral plan,  then please contact us on 01223 891226 or visit one of our offices.                

An appointment can be made to discuss your arrangements at one of our offices or in the comfort of your own home if wished.
You can rest assured that we will not only look after your funeral arrangements but we also provide families with individual support, care and reassurance when it matters most.
