Planning ahead for your funeral
Many people in the UK are planning ahead for their funeral, and one way you can do this is by taking out a prepaid funeral plan. Funeral plans provide an effective way for you to document your funeral wishes, whilst allowing you to pay for the majority of your funeral at today’s prices. This may give you the peace of mind that everything is taken care of and your family aren’t left with any difficult decisions.
At Dillamore we provide the Independent Way plan from Golden Charter. This is a flexible plan that ensures the funeral, the price and the way you pay is bespoke to you. For more information, visit the prepaid funeral guide page of our website or speak to a member of our team. We will always give helpful and impartial advice, without any pressure to commit.

Green funerals are rising in popularity in the UK as more people seek to make environmentally friendly choices. A green funeral minimises its effect on the natural world – a person is typically buried in a biodegradable coffin in woodland or a wildflower meadow, and a tree is planted in place of a gravestone.
If you are interested in finding out how to make a funeral more eco-friendly, our team are here to help. As well as arranging green funerals, we can also advise how to make a religious or traditional funeral more eco-friendly.
