Taking out a prepaid funeral plan with Dillamore ensures all of your funeral wishes are documented, and allows you to pay for the majority of your funeral in advance.

Eco funerals in Toddington
Green funerals are rising in popularity as more people seek to make environmentally-friendly choices in their lives. A green or eco funeral is a funeral that minimises its impact on the natural world, and usually takes place at a dedicated natural burial ground. This involves a person being buried in woodland or a meadow, with a tree planted over their grave.
At Dillamore, we are experienced in arranging green funerals. We work suppliers who can provide sustainably-produced and biodegradable coffins and urns, and can provide guidance on how to make a traditional funeral more environmentally-friendly. Olney Natural Burial Ground, Cosgrove Green Burial Meadow and Alleyfield Burial Ground are all within a 30-minute drive of Toddington.
Aftercare support from Dillamore
As a small family business, we are dedicated to the families we work with. Our team is here to support you for as long after the funeral as you need us. This could be anything from answering questions, providing further support, or arranging a memorial or remembrance keepsake for your family. We work with a number of specialist suppliers who can provide meaningful and memorable memorials for families.
Sometimes families come to us needing additional emotional support to help them come to terms with their loss. We work alongside bereavement counsellors in the local area, and have our own associate bereavement counsellor we can put you in touch with. If you are collecting charitable donations at the funeral, we can also support you in their collection and ensure they are received by your chosen charity.
