Local funeral directors - a comforting arm when you need them
Death is still such a taboo for British people and recent surveys have shown that more than 80% of us have never spoken to our loved ones about our own end of life plans. Whether it’s our own death or the death of a loved one, we don’t want to think about it however the reality is, it can be made more bearable by having a plan in place. Less than 1% of people who planned funerals for their loved ones in the last four years knew their wishes therefore by thinking about the send-off you want, this will give you added peace of mind and also provide your loved ones with extra comfort at an already difficult time.
