Funeral Plans

We believe we offer the Gold Standard in Pre-Paid Funeral Plans.

The Walter C. Parson Group offer one of the few plans on the market today which guarantees to cover the funeral and all cremation fees completely. By purchasing a plan today you guarantee tomorrow’s funeral at today’s price. Most other plans only offer a contribution towards any third party costs, meaning that there will be additional fees to pay when the funeral is required. Our funeral plans are not the least or most expensive to buy, but guarantee peace of mind that all fees are taken care of when it becomes necessary.

WINNERS OF THE FUNERAL SERVICE CUSTOMER CARE AWARD 2015 for the second time in three years.

Awarded by the Funeral Planning Services who operate the Trust Fund.

These awards are based on responses to a national survey of clients who purchased a funeral prepayment plan. The very high standard of customer care achieved by Walter C. Parson earned them an award, one of fifty presented to firms throughout the UK. The survey results showed that Walter C. Parson clients were “very satisfied” with the service provided and no-one was dissatisfied.

Of those who responded said they would recommend the plan to someone else. In the space for additional comments, one of Walter C Parson’s clients said, “Excellent plan ensuring my needs are met”.
“Funeral directors provide a very personal service to families and some deserve recognition for exceptional customer care,” says Graham Williams of Funeral Planning Services. “We have worked with Walter C. Parson since 2000 and we are delighted that they won this award again.”

These are the reasons why we can say that The Walter C. Parson Group offer Gold Standard Funeral Plans.

Please note that you can clear the outstanding balance at any time you wish, in which case the total price may be reduced.

Instalment amounts are calculated to the nearest penny - total prices quoted may vary by a few pence because of rounding.

DISBURSEMENTS

For a cremation the disbursement costs of each plan include: fee for the crematorium, doctors' fees for a cremation certificate and the usual ministers fee (as recommended by the BMA and CoE). If any extra fees are charged for an organist, church heating, doctors' or clergy's travel etc, these would be payable at the time. For a burial, each plan includes a contribution towards the burial costs, equivalent to the current cremation fees.

PERSONALISED ARRANGEMENTS

A funeral is a very personal matter and many people have particular wishes. If none of our traditional plans, which are designed around cremation, suit your requirements then please let us know and we will prepare a personalised funeral plan just for you, allowing you to choose whatever services you require.

This may include:

  • a special coffin,
  • a woodland burial plot,
  • a distinctive hearse,
  • and anything else which personalises your funeral.

We can keep a record of your requirements on file in our office for future reference.
