Pre-Paid Funeral Plans
What are the Benefits of a Pre-paid Funeral Plan?   What is a funeral plan? Many people wish to provide for their own funeral expenses, a funeral prepayment plan is a caring, sensible and cost-effective way to do so. All pre-payments are administered by Ecclesiastical Planning Services, which ensures every penny of your money is ring-fenced to be used only when a funeral is required.   What are the benefits to you? Taking out a plan will give you the peace of mind of knowing that our direct services have been paid for and a contribution has been made towards third party costs, ensuring your loved ones are spared this at a time when their grief and distress will be more than enough of a burden. As funeral costs are expected to rise nationally, our funeral plans give you the chance to make financial provision in advance at prices that reflect funeral costs of today and you can make a contribution towards third party costs such as cremation or burial fees, ect. You can make a single payment or pay by monthly instalments. Anyone aged 18 or over can take out a plan. There's no upper age limit and no medical or health questions to answer.   If you change your mind within the first month of receiving your plan documents you can return them for a full refund.   Taking out a plan Come into our office and we will be happy to discuss your wishes. You can choose whether to make a single payment or, if you prefer you can pay by instalments.     If you have any questions please give us a call at our offices on the numbers below to arrange an appointment.
Horse Drawn Carriages
Horse Drawn Carriages A horse drawn funeral can often be a comfort to relatives and friends who want to say a very special farewell to a loved one. Our highly professional, caring and dignified horse drawn funeral service provides you with a pair of black horses and black hearse. We are appropriately turned out for the occasion and dress in traditional style harness with full collars. In addition we can add drapes and ostrich plumes. Most colours are available to suit your personal preference. Horse-drawn hearses are surprisingly popular in the 21st century. Bennetts use a perfectly schooled team of immaculate Belgian Blacks for our horse drawn carriage funerals. Belgian Blacks originated from Friesland, Northern Holland, their strong black colour, together with their noble bearing and quiet temperament, have made them the first choice for Funeral horses for over two hundred years. During the 19th Century the Friesians were imported to Britain, via the port of Antwerp in Belgium. Therefore confusingly they became known in Britain as "Belgian Blacks". If you have any questions please give us a call at our offices on the numbers below to arrange an appointment:
Silver Hearse & Limousines
Silver Hearse & Limousines Bennetts funerals are carried out in traditional style and we believe our fleet of elegant stately silver hearse and limousines adds great dignity to the funeral cortege. Our silver vehicles are an expression of our attitude to someone passing. We don’t think that this should be a dark or black experience in any way, but that of an uplifting celebration of their life with us. Your loved one will be conveyed to the funeral service in our silver hearse. Many families choose to follow the hearse in one or more of our limousines, which comfortably accommodate six passengers. The funeral cortege will collect you and other family members from an address of your choice. You will be taken, in the limousines, to your chosen destination following the funeral service. As a special alternative, we are able to provide a traditional horse-drawn hearse. Other appropriate modes of transport may be arranged on request. Available to Hire Our silver hearse and limousines are available to hire to other funeral directors. Please contact us for more information

Aftercare Support
Bennetts aftercare support will contact you after the funeral to make sure that you are satisfied with the service we provided. We can also help and advise you on the choice of memorial masonry, to discuss the scattering of the ashes, or to help with legal affairs to ease the stress at this difficult time. The death of a family member or friend can be one of the most traumatic experiences in anyone’s life and many people find it hard to come to terms with such a loss. Whilst most people find the strength to cope with the bereavement immediately following a death, it is after the funeral when life is supposed to return to normal that many experience the natural effects of grief. Coping with bereavement is often a solitary process, often faced without the aid of family or professional help. At Bennetts we make sure you are not alone at this time of need. Monumental Masons Service To complement our funeral service we also provide a monumental masonry service. We will be able to create a perfect lasting memorial for your family. Memorial masonry takes many different forms. We will inform you of all the options available and advise you on local cemetery or crematorium regulations. We offer a very extensive range of stone memorials. A brochure is available for you to view the range. Some of the options to consider include: Colour Shape Style & colour of lettering Wording Type of material, eg. granite or marble Application of a design or photo plaque For existing memorials, we can provide new inscriptions, re-lettering and cleaning.
