At S Carter & Son we aim to take care of your every request. Michael Carter is still conducting the majority of all funerals that are carried out. Both Sarah Carter and Darren Wood have much expertise in this field also and can be available upon your request. We understand how difficult it can be to lose a loved one, and the significance of saying goodbye.

As proud members of the National Association of Funeral Directors, you can be assured that we will guide you through the entire process, making arrangements on your behalf. We also offer a great selection of transport options including horse drawn funerals and classic black hearse cars.

Pre-arranged funeral plans

We are proud providers of Perfect Choice and Golden Charter Funeral Plans, and can assist you with any information you may require, as well as helping with the completion of the plan paperwork.

A funeral prepayment plan is not an investment product but a secure way of paying for a funeral in advance. Each purchaser receives a guarantee that the services itemised in the plan will be provided when required by the participating funeral director, and the funeral director is guaranteed payment for his or her work at an agreed price.

Additional services

  • Donations - We will receive donations for your chosen charity on your behalf.
  • Flowers - Flowers can be delivered to our premises or to the address the funeral will be leaving from. They will then be taken to the final resting place, afterwards we can remove the cards for you to keep.
  • Obituaries - We can place notices on your behalf in a local or national newspaper of your choice. We can assist with suitable wording.
  • Catering - We are able to recommend local and extremely professional family run caterers that can cater in your own home or at chosen location.
