Barringtons Independent Funeral Services is a family-run business, serving the communities of Waterloo, Merseyside, Wirral and North Liverpool.

Owner, David Barrington was brought up around funerals and eventually took over his family’s business following his father’s retirement. Over the years, he has turned what was primarily a carriagemaster into a complete funeral service, offering local families the choice and flexibility that cannot always be found elsewhere. David is an approved tutor for the National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD) and became the NAFD president in 2019. David's wife Claire, who is also a qualified funeral director, works alongside him in the family business and manages the modern and inviting Formby branch.

David and Claire are supported by a devoted and professional team of staff who are experienced in all areas of the funeral industry. As a member of the NAFD, Barringtons Independent Funeral Services adheres to a strict Code of Practice. This ensures each and every funeral is carried out to the highest professional standards, for your peace of mind.


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.
