Pre-paid funeral plans - R. Gwinnell & Sons

Pre-paid funeral plans

By deciding to arrange your funeral in advance, your family and loved ones will be relieved of many worries at a time when their grief and distress are more than enough to bear.

Once paid, our funeral directing services are covered, as long as your requirements don’t change and we carry out your funeral. Every plan also includes the option to make a contribution towards services not provided by R. Gwinnell & Sons, known as disbursements (such as doctors, crematorium, cemetery and church fees, newspaper announcements etc.). These fees are outside of our control, and cannot be guaranteed. If these costs are not covered by the plan value at the time of the funeral, there may be a balance to pay.

Every penny of the value of your plan is ring-fenced to pay for your funeral when the time comes.

Please view our list of services.

We would be happy to offer you any help or assistance required on this sensitive subject.
