Steve & Michelles Baby Coronation Street

Been watching the scenes in Coronation Street closely this week and been a big topic of conversation at R Banks & Son (Funerals Ltd). Sadly these issues are all too real, and there is support out there and some fantastic charities doing work with families affected by stillbirth & neonatal death. SANDS, The Lily Mae Foundation, & Tommy’s who are all funded by charitable donations from the public, and don’t receive as wide spread publicity as some of the bigger charities. We urge anyone who found these scenes even just slightly emotional give what you can to these amazing charities who provide invaluable help to those families at need.

There is also an incentive in place by Angel Wings baby & child loss support provide cuddle cots to local hospitals, children’s hospitals, hospices etc to provide special units called cuddle cots (featured in recent episodes, the blue pipes and unit seen attached to the Moses basket) we at R Banks & Son Funerals Wigan are lucky enough to have been allocated one of these units designed to allow bereaved parents extra time to bond with their baby by using these specially designed climate control cots this Time allows the family to form an important bond with their baby; whether changing a nappy, dressing the baby, taking photographs or simply just staying close and this unquestionably helps families in dealing with their loss. So please if anyone feels they can make a donation to any of the above charities you’d be making a huge difference to someone, you may not realise it but you would.

The Tina McIntyre Funeral, Coronation Street.

Tina

Next week will once again see many viewers drawn to yet another soap opera funeral, this time as the street bids farewell to one of its younger characters, Tina McIntyre, we will yet again see a cortege roll down its famous cobbles.

The representation of the funeral will be a side issue for those in the profession, but the real question which people should be asking is how does a part time bar maid working only a few shifts a week in a local pub, whom has no family of which to speak, and who only last week couldn’t afford a train fare to Portsmouth leave enough behind financially to pay for a funeral?

Unfortunately its becoming all too easy for us as funeral directors to answer, she can’t. Irrespective of whether or not Tina McIntyre was a fictional character, funeral costs are all too real.

That’s why R Banks & Son Funeral Directors in Wigan offer pre payment funerals, allowing people to set aside a guaranteed balance to help with funeral costs when they come to pass.

Many people wish to provide for their funeral expenses and a funeral prepayment plan is a caring, sensible and cost effective way to do so

“Most of us as we get older; expect to provide the money to meet our funeral expenses. It’s to do with independence and responsibility: leaving everything in order for our relatives and friends. We don’t often talk about it – because there’s no need to- but the fact is that funerals cost money, and we want to take care of the cost.”

The advantage of a pre payment plan over a savings account or life insurance policy is that you can pay now at today’s price and beat inflation no matter when the service might be required. The funeral directors fees will be paid when the funeral has been provided. Funeral prepayment plans are provided by Funeral Planning services in association with a network of independent family owned funeral directors throughout the UK. Funeral prepayments are held in funeral planning trust and are monitored by the funeral planning authority

-The advantages of prepayment funeral plans:

-You can choose your own funeral arrangements for peace of mind

-You save your family from having to make a difficult decision and trying to guess what you would have wanted

-Avoid rising funeral costs with an inflation proof guarantee of the funeral directors costs

-Financial security – the funeral payment is held in funeral planning trust until it is needed

-The service will be provided by your local funeral director

-There is no age limit and no awkward health questions

-You can make a once only payment or pay by monthly instalments, whichever suits you best

-All enquires and arrangements are treated with the strictest of confidence

-Complies with the funeral planning authority code and the financial services and markets act 2000
