Special Requests

Families may want to think about other ways of making the funeral reflect the life of the person who has passed away. We will do our best to arrange anything we can for families. Some of the things we offer: horse-drawn carriage, motor cycle funerals, woodland/environmentally friendly funerals, releasing doves at the crematorium or at the graveside, or a route that might stop at their local pub/club. We can provide all this and so much more.

Monumental Masonry

We can design and make a head stone/memorial.


We can arrange to have a loved one transported and laid to rest in the land that they referred to as home.

Golden Charter Funeral Plans

Golden Charter Funeral Plans

Talking about death and funerals isn’t easy. That’s why we recommend taking care of things your own way, on your own terms, with a funeral plan. From a traditional funeral, to something simpler, with a plan in place you can make sure you get the send-off you really want. A plan allows you to specify your wishes and pay for the funeral director’s services included in your plan. As customers often tell us, that can bring peace of mind to you and your family. A plan from Golden Charter also includes an allowance towards third party costs. These are essential, non-funeral director services such as the cremation or burial fees, plus the minister or officiant’s fee to perform the service.

At Daniel Mercer Family Funeral Directors Ltd, we’re proud to partner with Golden Charter, one of the UK’s leading funeral plan providers. * With a Golden Charter funeral plan, you can choose us as your preferred funeral director. When the time comes, we’ll take care of your wishes locally with the utmost care and respect.

It means your Golden Charter funeral plan offers the best of both worlds – the reassurance of a leading plan provider and our personal care and service when it matters most. Rest assured a plan from Golden Charter is available to all UK residents regardless of age or state of health.
