Thinking ahead to your funeral is another way of looking after your loved ones

Winter is often seen as the perfect time to focus on family and friends. It could be fun together or a simple chat over the phone – it all fills those wintry and cold evenings with laughter and warmth.

It’s also the season for thankfulness and reflection, and with the New Year around the corner, you might want to consider your own affairs.

Thinking ahead to your funeral is another way of looking after your nearest and dearest.

With a funeral plan, they’ll have peace of mind. That’s because when your funeral arrangements are entrusted to us, we make sure relatives have no more to worry about than necessary.

We offer a personal and professional service from modern facilities in your area, and you’re welcome to pop in for a cup of tea and a chat.

Our caring funeral colleagues can take you through all your requirements and a variety of personal touches.

We can provide unique transport, from our own traditional vehicles to horse-drawn carriages and even a motorcycle-hearse.

Music, readings and flowers or even the release of doves are some of the many other personal options available, and we employ memorial masons who can produce unique tributes.

You’re guaranteed excellent value with us as there’s no middleman. Our colleagues organise and carry out funerals themselves so you’ll have complete peace of mind.

We’re also clear about the price we set. There are two different types of cost – the funeral director’s charges and the disbursements paid to third parties.

The disbursements you include in a plan with us are fully covered, so once they’re paid, your loved ones won’t need to pay more at the time of the funeral as may be the case with most other plan providers.

We’ve signed the Fair Funerals pledge to prove we’re committed to transparent pricing and helping people find a funeral that’s affordable.

Our current funeral plan cost will change on 1st January 2018, but you can still visit your local Lincolnshire Co-op funeral branch now to secure this year’s price.

And whatever is included in a funeral plan, we want to look after the person who needs it.

That’s why we’re offering 10 per cent dividend to members on plans arranged between 18th November and 15th December.

Visit your local Lincolnshire Co-op Funeral Home for a friendly chat to find out more.
