At Barringtons, we have many decades’ experience in helping people through their time of grief and loss. What sets us apart from others is our dedication, discreet and confidential management of the event and value for money. Most people either don’t have the time or they think it’s too morbid to plan for death and funerals. However, this a more practical approach that helps to ensure that the wishes of the deceased are followed, while important financial considerations are planned ahead. This can lessen the impact and help the bereaved family and friends to focus on what is important to them – time to mourn and give their loved one a farewell tribute that he or she deserves.

You may have some final wishes to be fulfilled like organ donation, burial in a particular location, non-religious ceremony. In Waterloo, funeral planning is essential for  people who wish to save costs by arranging a minimalist event, so that they can leave more money to their children and grandchildren. Our Golden Charter Funeral Plans help you to create a trust fund specially meant for your funeral expenses. This fund is a safe instrument, backed by AXA, one of the largest insurance companies in the world and regulated by the UK Financial Services Authority. The cost of an average funeral, minus all the extras like flowers, catering, music, can be upwards of £5000 in the UK today. As people age or develop a terminal illness, it’s important that they give enough thought to these matters. This can ease the financial burden and stress on the family, and ensure that you are given the type of funeral you want.
