  Home Visits Donations Coordinated and Collected  

We are frequently asked when a funeral is arranged to request donations in memory of the deceased rather than flowers.  As part of our service we coordinate the collection of donations on behalf of the family and in due course when the collection is completed forward on the donations to the charity with a copy and any letters received with the donations forwarded on to the family.  Therefore a record is kept both with the charity and the family.

  Home Visits Prepaid Funeral Plans  

Planning for the future by arranging and paying for your funeral in advance you can benefit your family, loved ones or executor who ever will be responsible for organising and paying for the funeral.

There are advantages not only for your family but for yourself.

The funeral arrangements are to your wishes, including a choice of music, burial or cremation, the coffin can be chosen and even designed by you for example.

Funeral costs are ever increasing and therefore with the funeral paid at current prices, your family are relieved of what could be a financial worry at a time when they are distressed and coping with the shock of bereavement.

To unburden your family from the responsibility of arranging a funeral, and their relief perhaps that you have already organised the funeral which can therefore be carried out to your wishes.

We believe that Golden Charter offer one of the best flexible pre-paid funeral plans available. The cost of the plan can be paid as one lump sum or indeed by instalments, giving greater flexible payment terms. Having drawn up the plan it is possible to make changes should your circumstances change such as you move to another area and therefore you would need to appoint a different funeral director.

When death occurs the shock and distress experienced is like no other, with a funeral plan in place you can help your family, by having made those difficult decisions and removing the possibility of financial worry from them.

Memorial Showroom A memorial or headstone is a lasting symbol of remembrance and a traditional way of paying tribute to a relative or friend who has died. This final gift that you will give to the person you love and miss so dearly, must be perfect in every way.

Headstone - Ash Brook Funerals

Headstones are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, and can be personalized by adding etchings or photographs with the inscription.

Kerb Sets and larger memorials permission can be obtained to erect a kerb set or larger memorial on a grave in a churchyard or cemetery.

Cremation Tablets are generally smaller in size often flat and can be placed where either cremated remains have been scattered or buried.

Marble – is a traditional material perhaps more suited to an ornamental memorial with its white/blue colouring and few imperfections.

Stone – this is more generally used in churchyards where granite and marble are not allowed. With options of Portland, York or Nabresina stone to choose from which comes in a light buff/cream colour
Granite – there is a wide variety of colours to choose and each being uniquely different, and with timeless beauty will endure the elements without deteriorating.

  Home Visits Memorial Restoration and Additional Inscription  

Renovation of Existing Memorials we are able to restore an existing memorial to its original elegance with specialist cleaning, attention to detail and perhaps re carving, or leading of inscription and design.

Additional inscription we can uplift an existing memorial for which an additional inscription is required, my craftsmen are able to often replicate the existing lettering using traditional and modern techniques.

Subsided or leaning memorials time can take its toll on an existing memorial causing the memorial to move and lean. We are able to inspect the memorial and raise and level it, making it safe and restoring the memorial to its former glory.

All memorials which we remove to either allow for a new burial to take place, or to carry out renovation work are carefully stored in a safe environment.

  Grave Tending Service Grave Tending Service  

Over the years we have established a service for our clients whereby we maintain the grave of their loved one in their absence. Perhaps they have moved away from the area or even abroad or for personal reasons such as health are no longer able to visit the grave.

Anniversaries and Birthdays are dutifully recorded by us to ensure that the grave is tended with fresh flowers on that special day in the year. At Christmas time we put holly wreaths on graves as well as fresh flowers, or perhaps you would like spring bulbs planted, or other seasonal plants planted throughout the year.

Because Anniversaries and Birthdays are important dates of remembrance, for your peace of mind we take a photograph of the grave with the flowers on, which is then forwarded onto you either by email or post. With this record of a lovingly cared for grave you now have peace of mind and less of worry knowing that all is in good order, and the grave is as you would have wanted to keep it yourself, were you able to do so.

Additionally we can carry out memorial maintenance which includes cleaning, renovation work, and levelling the memorial etc.

If you would like to register for the Grave Tending Service, please use the form below or contact us directly by telephone.
