Funeral Wishes

Many people choose to make their own funeral arrangements in advance to guarantee their own specific wishes for their funeral. With our Funeral Wishes Plan you can make arrangements for your funeral in advance by simply communicating your wishes to us and without making a pre-payment for any services.

We will store the information such as the place for a funeral service, favourite hymns or readings, a choice of coffin, instructions regarding floral tributes etc. and keep it safe until it is required. We will then endeavour, with the permission of your executors or your family, to carry out those wishes. There is no charge for pre-arrangement in this way.

Alternatively G.L. Skinner & Son have put together a document for you to download and record the main details of a funeral, you can simply print this form off and complete it at a time that is convenient for you and keep it in a safe place or pass on to a next of kin, or you can simply return it back to us and we can answer any questions you may wish to ask.
