Holly's Funeral Planning Service
Holly’s Funerals professional fee - £300
This service is for people who want to plan their own
funeral in advance.
It's not always easy to initiate these conversations with
friends and family and many people like to sort things out
themselves in advance before speaking with their loved ones.
We can either come to see you at home or you can make an appointment to see us in our comfortable offices in Cranbrook, Kent or Tenterden, Kent. It's up to you.
We will advise you of all your rights and options and help you create a detailed funeral plan for you to share with friends and family. We are totally independent and not tied to any supplier or company so we can give you a fully comprehensive plan that covers all of your options.
We will also cover briefly the importance of making a will, nominating trusted people with Power of Attorney and the use of Advanced Directives for medical care.
Included in the price:
A Full Discovery Meeting with you (and your family if required) of up to 3 hours. During the meeting we will explain all of your funeral rights and options. We will talk you through the entire process, discuss the sort of service you require and your desired funeral arrangements. We won't try to sell you anything, just provide you with comprehensive and independent advice to help you make informed decisions about your funeral.
We will help you to create a detailed Funeral Plan for you to keep and provide copies for you to share with your friends and family. We will also keep a file copy of your Funeral Plan in case we need it in future.
We do not have any pre-set plans and we will not try to guide you down any particular route. As far as we are concerned, there are no rights and wrongs and we do not make any judgements. We are here to help you create exactly the type of funeral that you want.
Your Funeral Plan can be as detailed as you like, specifying your desires for the following areas:
What sort of funeral you'd like
Where you would like your funeral to be held
Where you would like your service held
If you'd like a traditional hearse or a tractor
Your specified choice of officiant (e.g. celebrant, priest etc)
The type of coffin you'd like
Music to be played at your funeral
Who you'd like to invite to your funeral and what you'd like them to wear
The flowers or decorations you'd like
What food and drink you'd like served
Whatever you want, we're here to help you create exactly the right funeral for you.
