Richardsons Funeral Directors recommend Golden Charter
Peace of mind and personal service from your local independent funeral director
Richardsons Funeral Directors are your local independent funeral director. We regard all those who call upon us as part of our wider, extended family and are committed to offering you and your loved ones a caring, professional service at a difficult time.
Over the years many funeral businesses whose names have been recognised and respected, sometimes for generations, have been acquired by what can only be described as 'big business', or a large international conglomerate.
Richardsons Funeral Directors was formed and is staffed by people who did not wish to go down that road, people who have been involved in funeral directing for many years and who wish to remain independent. By doing so, we believe we offer you the best value and most professional service you would expect from your local independent funeral director. We answer to you, not to members or shareholders. As an independent business, we continue to invest directly in our business for the benefit of those we serve in our local community.
Richardsons Funeral Directors are proud to recommend funeral plans from Golden Charter, the UK’s leading independent funeral plan provider. More than 860,000 people in Great Britain have planned their funerals, over 250,000 of them with Golden Charter.

Helping you at a difficult time
Arranging any funeral can be distressing, which is why choosing the right funeral director to ease you through the process can make all the difference. We at Richardsons Funeral Directors understand the pain of loss and offer both practical guidance and personal comfort before and after bereavement.
Everything your family and friends ever thought about a loved one can be expressed on that day, and it is important as that aids the natural grieving process, rather than making it more difficult.
We provide a professional service to you 24 hours a day all year, which begins as soon as you contact us and often extends far beyond the day of the funeral.
Funeral plans – a most thoughtful decision
We can also offer advice on prepaid funeral plans. A funeral plan can save you money and provides invaluable peace of mind for you and your family.
In the past 7 years funeral costs have risen by 61%, from costing an average of £1,920 in 2004 to a staggering £3,091 today*. These figures are only set to increase further.
The reassurance gained from making arrangements in advance and these escalating costs are the reasons why nearly a million people in Britain have taken out a funeral plan.
A funeral plan is thoughtful way of preparing for the future. It enables you to fix the cost of your funeral director’s services at today’s prices, no matter how much this may increase in the coming years. By choosing to plan ahead for your funeral, you and your loved ones will benefit from welcome peace of mind knowing that everything is taken care of in advance.
Your thoughtfulness will relieve your grieving relatives of the financial strain and any worries about your funeral arrangements at a time of distress. Plus, you have the comfort of knowing that that the arrangements which you particularly want, including the type of funeral, venue, music choices, readings and even flowers will be carried out exactly as you wish.
Thinking about planning your own funeral can be daunting, which is why choosing the right funeral plan provider to ease you through the process can make all the difference.
