Budgeting for a Woburn funeral
With the average price of a funeral in Woburn costing £3500-£4500, and with funeral costs rising annually, it’s important to consider how a funeral will be paid for. If you are organising the funeral of a loved one, check if they have made any financial provisions to cover their funeral. This could be through a pre-paid funeral plan, a savings account or documented in their will. If you are paying for the funeral yourself, set a budget and communicate it with your funeral director so that they can guide you in your decisions. Dillamore will always provide clarity with regards to funeral costs and will work closely with you to organise a funeral you can afford.
Prepaid funeral plans
Planning your funeral ahead of time may not be something you had considered, but it could make good financial sense. Pre-paid funeral plans allow you to pay for the funeral director’s services at today’s prices whilst allowing you to document and plan your funeral arrangements. This will ensure that your family aren’t left with difficult decisions regarding the funeral and how it will be paid for. For anyone interested in taking out a funeral plan with Dillamore, we provide the Independent Way Plan from Golden Charter. This fully flexible and bespoke plan ensures your wishes can be fulfilled and enables us to work with the differing requirements our customers may have.

Post-funeral services Woburn
Our services don’t end once the funeral has taken place, and there are some important ways we can suppport you in the proceeding months. We can arrange a memorial for your loved one, or organise a burial plot for their ashes. We can also offer advice on any rules in place regarding the scattering of ashes. We can also oversee the collection of funeral donations on behalf of the family. We find that managing funeral donations can often provide families with a sense of relief, knowing it is all taken care of.
Occasionally people feel the need to talk to someone to help them with their grief. For anyone struggling to come to terms with their loss, we work with a specialised bereavement counsellor who can provide support and guidance should you need it.
