Guidance and care are the hallmarks of WS Ingham & Son, the family-owned, independent funeral directors.
Based in Forest Town, this is truly a firm whose heritage, professionalism and attention to detail has made it a company that people can trust in times of need.
WS Ingham, now managed by Tony Ingham, is set in a semi-rural, secluded location, and the family has invested much thought in providing a facility that is modern, clean and comforting.
From the moment you walk into the premises you know that you are dealing with an independent family company that cares.
The premises consist of a main reception area leading onto a conservatory and an arrangement room leading to two viewing lounges and a further reception area .The premises are disabled friendly having ramped access and automatic doors to the entrance. Outside to the premises is a memorial area where families can choose a headstone if they so wish.
W.S.Ingham & son Ltd can also offer families memorial keepsakes in memory of their loved ones.
Just beyond the premises are newly-constructed garages that now house the modern fleet of vehicles. Even the vehicles are well looked after.
Caring is a theme that runs throughout everything the company does. One member of the team will guide families through the whole process, offering a clear line of communication.
That person will go through the decisions that need to be made, like burial or cremation, service location, religious or non-religious, music, hymns,transport and newspaper notices.
That personal touch is something you simply do not get with larger companies, and it’s what makes this one stand out.
It’s what makes families use WS Ingham more than once.
You just have to read the testimonials on www.wsingham.co.uk to see the high regard in which the company is held.
Any type of funeral service can be arranged, and it is with care that staff go through any arrangements that need to be made.
Proving popular with many people at the moment are pre-paid funeral plans.
This is where people take the stress and uncertainty of planning and paying for a funeral by doing it advance.
Funds are protected as the money goes into a trust. With average funerals expected to cost in excess of £5,600 by 2020, it makes financial common sense to plan ahead.
According to Mr Ingham, this is a popular way of making sure all is right when the time comes, giving people peace of mind.
