Introduction We believe that a funeral is a personal and meaningful occasion where you choose what happens. Whether you need to make the funeral arrangements for a loved one now, or would like to make funeral plans for the future, we hope you find these pages useful. We don’t expect you to make every decision about the funeral during the initial consultation. You may want to take a bit of time to consider some matters further, or consult with your family or other people. Please remember most arrangements can be changed at any time at your request, provided they have not already been completed. Should you wish to alter anything once you have looked through this brochure, please do contact us. There is perhaps no other experience in life which can compare with losing a loved one and because we understand this, we ensure that our colleagues, business practices, premises and vehicles are all of the highest standard possible to support you and your family during, and after this difficult time. Please note the pictures within the brochure are for illustration purposes. Colours of products may vary to those shown. Due to volatile shipping, manufacturing and material costs, prices are subject to change and are correct as of 1 January 2024.

Championing responsible business Our business has always had a purpose beyond profit, working together with others for the benefit of our communities. Underpinning this is our commitment to championing a responsible and different way of doing business, one that has a positive impact on society, the local economy and the environment and plays its part in creating a fairer society and sustainable future.

We ensure our plans support their delivery and we work collaboratively with our colleagues, customers, members, and other partners to promote this agenda regionally.

OUR ENVIRONMENT We are proud to be supporting initiatives to make our funerals and our business more environmentally sustainable. These initiatives help us to reduce our environmental footprint and enhance the natural areas in which we operate.

CLIMATE ACTION

We are keen to play our part in tackling the climate and ecological challenges we now face, so we are urgently cutting greenhouse gas emissions and making space for wildlife and nature recovery. We are committed to reducing absolute greenhouse gas emissions from our operations by 50% by 2030 compared to 2019 i.e. those emissions relating to the electricity, gas, fuel and refrigeration we use. We are making good progress. A fully electric hearse (see page 17) is part of our End of Life Services vehicle fleet alongside other hybrid vehicles. Alongside site based energy saving initiatives, we have invested

in LED lighting in all our funeral homes and solar panels in some locations. We also encourage our colleagues to identify energy saving opportunities to take action to save energy. We operate a recycling programme in our funeral homes and work in partnership with Wildlife Trusts across our region to support nature recovery at our own sites and within our communities.
