Debbie Collins Independent Funeral Directors offers other services to help you through this difficult time.

I offer the following services:
  • Floral Tributes
  • Horse-drawn carriages
  • Prepaid funeral plans
  • Memorials and monuments
  • Obituary Notices

Floral Tributes


I am able to assist with any floral tributes you and your family or friends may have., ranging from traditional wreaths, crosses, cushions and sprays to personal names, messages, soccer shirts, golf club badges etc.

I am able to create specialist and personalised items, such as motorbikes, horses, teddy bears etc.

On request, I can recommend florists, who will be able to help and advise you with any floral tributes you require.

Horse-drawn carriages


I am able to offer horse-drawn carriages together with matching mourners carriage in both white or black. 

The carriages are styled in the Victorian fashion and drawn by either fully liveried, pure bred Fresian stallions, often referred to as “Belgian Blacks”, or by White Lippazaners.

Prepaid Funeral Plans


Golden Charter is the UK’s largest independent funeral plan provider. 

It is endorsed by leading bodies within the funeral procession: SAIF, the National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors, and the FPA, the Funeral Planning Authority.

A prepaid funeral plan is the most thoughtful decision you can make, giving peace of mind for you and your family.

The funeral plan can be as bespoke or as simple as you wish. There is a range of ways to pay for the plan and every plan is guaranteed of acceptance.

Memorials and Monuments


I can offer an extensive range of headstones and memorials to suit your individual taste. 

No two people’s tastes are the same and the choice of design, finish, style, script and wording are enormous.

I can assist you with wording, letter style choice and practical issues such as flower holders etc.

Please bear in mind that some cemeteries, churchyards, and crematoriums have strict rules on what can and cannot be displayed in terms of size, footings, surrounds etc.

Obituary notices


I can help place Obituary Notices both in the local and national press should you wish.

I will guide you through suggested wording and handle the placing and billing of the obituary on your behalf.
