Here at Wallace Stuart Limited, we understand that planning a funeral or cremation is normally a new experience. While dealing with the loss of a loved one, there are so many checkpoints to pass through before you can truly say your goodbyes. One of the reasons we have become such an established funeral director in Somerset is by putting each and every one of our family’s first. Understanding their individual needs and standing alongside them with the advice and guidance they need during this difficult time. This is why we’ve created our online guides.

Walking you through everything you need to know, our Guides offer all the up-to-date and relevant information in one place. We’ll cover everything from how to plan a funeral through to choosing the most suitable coffin for your loved one. We’ll guide you through how to manage the estate of a deceased family member, what Government services are out there to help, and where you can find support for your own personal bereavement. Laying your loved one to rest is an emotional time and we want to make sure you are fully supported the entire way. Our team works hard to bring as much information and value to these guides so you find everything you need to know.
