A funeral plan through Charles Stephens Funeral Directors guarantees that our funeral director's service costs are covered as outlined in your selected plan. You will not pay anything further towards these specified services. You can also choose to make a contribution towards third party costs which are outside of our control, such as fees for cremation or burial. These plans also save your family from having to make difficult decisions in the future.
Our Funeral Plans
We offer our own independent funeral plans, which are managed by Ecclesiastical Planning Services. We have three different plans, although if you wish you can create your own unique plan.
The plans we offer are:
The Ashton Plan at £3,140
The Prenton Plan at £3,530
The Claughton Plan at £4,340
Prices quoted include £990 for disbursements and £270 management fee.

One of the subjects rarely discussed by people is their own funeral arrangements. Our experience shows that this can place a great burden on the relatives who are left to make the necessary arrangements.
We are able to pre-arrange funerals and take your instructions now and hold them until such a time as they are needed. This saves any difficult discussions within the family and gives you peace of mind knowing everything will take place in accordance with your wishes. It also saves your family a lot of unnecessary worry over any decisions.
