Caldecott and Sons Funeral Directors was founded in 1872 by Edwin Caldecott, the youngest son of a farming family living in Shocklach, near Malpas, Cheshire.

The family-owned, well-established funeral service provider is now in its fifth generation. Over the years, Caldecott & Sons has earned a reputation for providing a dedicated and professional service to local families.

The team at Caldecott & Sons is pleased to offer a full range of funeral services, including pre-payment funeral plans for those who wish to plan ahead. Supported by Ecclesiastical Planning Services, its funeral plans are locally packaged and priced and delivered to the very high professional standards that have become a hallmark of the business.

As a member of the National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD), Caldecott & Sons is committed to maintaining the highest standards and adhere to a strict code of practice.


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.
