Pre paid funeral plans


ULTIMATE PEACE OF MIND 

The loss of a loved one is an emotional and stressful time. A funeral can also create an unexpected and inconvenient cost. With this in mind, many people choose to look ahead and take care of a pre paid funeral plan.

For your peace of mind, Turnbulls offers up-front pay plans for funerals with no hidden costs. We can help you to pay ahead for a funeral whatever your financial circumstances and we guarantee to provide a dignified funeral that you will be proud of, whether it’s small and highly personal, large and crowded or focused on your religion or culture.

At Turnbulls funeral directors, we recommend Golden Charter funeral plans. The benefits of a pre-paid funeral plan are peace of mind, cash savings and security.

Poem

Death be not proud, though some have called thee Mighty and dreadfull, for, thou art not so, For, those, whom thou think'st, thou dost overthrow, Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill me.


– John Donne (1572-1631) –
