Look in a magazine or turn on the TV and we can guarantee you will see an advert for life insurance or funeral plans!

If you are thinking about planning ahead please take our advice and contact us rather than a sales person. Sales people do not conduct funeral services and have no experience of such. They will not be conducting your funeral or helping your family.

Plan for the future

Some people get shivers down the spine at the thought of planning their funeral. Sometimes it seems the family doesn’t want to think or talk about losing a loved one. Being organised now will help your loved ones both financially and emotionally when the time comes.

Making decisions when you are recently bereaved is extremely difficult which is why we think our funeral plans are so beneficial.

At Hardy’s we try hard to make planning your funeral an ‘easy’ thing to do. You can book an appointment for us to come to your home or you are more than welcome to come to either of our offices. We make this as straightforward as we can and more often than not we are able have a laugh too.

Planning your funeral may give you great comfort and reassurance that your wishes are held safely with us. We can help you approach your funeral with a guiding hand to create exactly what you want. The more detail we gather in your funeral plan the more it can help your loved ones when the time comes. Something as simple as a poignant piece of music can evoke happy memories.
