For almost 125 years, Charles Stephens Funeral Directors has been serving local families at difficult times providing compassionate care, attention to detail and excellent customer service as an independent family business.

Many local funeral directors, whilst maintaining their original name, have been bought out by some of the national companies. Charles Stephens prides itself on the values and principles that have made it one of the leading independent, family owned and managed funeral directors in Wirral.

As a member of the National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD), Charles Stephens adheres to a strict Code of Practice, ensuring each and every funeral is carried out to the highest standards. The team is pleased to provide a full range of funeral services, including a selection of pre-paid funeral plans, supported by Ecclesiastical Planning Services.


Choosing your funeral plan – important information

You can buy a plan for yourself or on behalf of someone else. The funeral plans offered are designed to cover the funeral director's own costs. As long as they carry out the funeral and the requirements don't change, neither you nor your family will be asked to pay a penny more for these costs, regardless of when the plan is needed or what happens to costs in the meantime.

The plans can also include a contribution towards any third party costs (also known as disbursements), such as burial or cremation costs. Please refer to the Key Features Document and Terms and Conditions for more information.
