Arranging A Funeral

Just the thought of having to plan a funeral for your beloved friend or family member can be extremely upsetting – but we can help you get it right, ensuring you’re able to celebrate their life in a way they would’ve wanted.

Our main aim at Ashley Edwards Funeral Directors is to make the planning stage as stress-free as possible, which is why we offer our guidance and support right the way through the process.

No matter your requirements, we’ll always do our best to accommodate and give your loved one the send-off they deserve.

Bespoke Funeral Plans In Wells

Funeral plans are a great way to organise and pay for your own funeral well in advance – to make sure your family isn’t burdened with the rising cost of funerals, once you pass away.

You can choose a plan that best suits your needs, and tailor this to your specific desires, to help your family celebrate your life in the way you want.

Our plans start from just £3,200 and your options include:

  • The Southwold
  • The Eddystone
  • The Longstone
  • The Flamborough

Whether you pay in one lump sum or spread the cost is entirely up to you. If you’re unsure how to spread the cost, head over to our online funeral finance calculator for a rough estimate. 

Direct Cremations In Wells

A direct cremation is a great, more affordable option if you don’t want to be bound by the formalities of a traditional cremation or burial.

Not to worry though, no compromises are made if you opt for a direct cremation – both you and your loved one will receive the same level of care and support as you’d expect when using any of our other services.

We will collect your loved one from their resting place, liaise with you regarding paperwork and registrations, arrange the cremation, and return the cremated remains to you a short while later.

Both you and your beloved friend or relative are in excellent hands with Ashley Edwards Funeral Directors.

Frequently Asked Questions

It typically takes one to two weeks after death to arrange and hold a funeral service for your loved one in Wells.

Many families prefer to hold a funeral as soon as possible following their loss, but unfortunately, it’s not always possible.

If the death needs to be investigated by a coroner, or logistical challenges arise (like availability with your preferred funeral director, church or crematorium) , it will take a little longer.

Not to worry though, issues like these can be resolved quickly – usually within three weeks.

Our funeral directors at Ashley Edwards will work with you to plan the send-off your beloved friend or family member deserves, and we’ll always be transparent about any delays whilst offering you the most suitable compromise.

Most people prefer to organise a funeral with the help of a funeral director, and while it’s not always a necessity, we do highly recommend using one.
