Independent Family Funeral Directors since 1856

The Bastock family have been funeral directors for over 160 years. Over seven generations we have built an enviable reputation for the excellence of the funerals we arrange. Our company has never stood still and we constantly seek to improve on what we do and the choices we provide. 

Our objective has never changed, we strive to provide the best possible funeral at the most reasonable cost. In 2001 we opened our new purpose built funeral home in Olton, Solihull. Our investment ensures the facilities we have are without compromise. The bespoke design, private reception rooms and private mourning suites, have all been designed to make your visit a peaceful and calming experience. Our qualified and dedicated advisors will listen to your requirements and guide you through the choices to ensure your complete satisfaction with the arrangements you make.

Talking about your own or a loved ones funeral is not something any of us enjoy. In doing so though, you remove from your family many difficult decisions and ensure that your final wishes are recorded. Decisions your family find difficult to make at the time can be discussed now and accurately recorded for the time of need.

Many thousands of people are now taking out a prepaid funeral plan every year. It gives them financial and emotional peace of mind. In 2003 we helped establish a national company Open Prepaid Funerals Limited.  We believe they provide the best value for clients and the best security for funeral directors at the time of need. David Bastock is a director and shareholder of Open Prepaid Funerals Limited.  He is also one of the trustees of the Open Prepaid Funeral Trust.  If you'd like to enquire about a funeral plan please use the following QR code to complete an enquiry form online  and one of the Open team of advisers will be in touch.

Why choose a prepaid funeral plan?

Taking out a prepaid funeral plan can bring many benefits to you and your family. Some of these may include:

  • Alleviates financial burden - one of the benefits of taking out a funeral plan is securing the funeral directors services at today’s price, these are guaranteed to be covered at the time of need if fully paid. Disbursements are not fully guaranteed though, there could be a shortfall which your family may have to cover, see terms and conditions or talk to us for more details.
  • Reduces emotional stress - planning a loved one’s funeral can be an emotionally challenging time for family and close friends. By planning your funeral before the time comes, this could reduce emotional and financial stress for your loved ones.
  • Tailor made for you - by arranging your funeral ahead of time, you are able to design it specifically to your own individual requirements – meaning its bespoke to you and your preferences.

Tailor-made funeral plans

If none of the set plans are exactly what you had in mind, we can work with you to create a tailor-made funeral plan that specifically meets your needs. You may find it useful to use one of our pre-existing prepaid funeral plans as a guide to help you begin the process. Then you could add an extra limousine, for example, or decide that you would prefer the service to take place in your local church rather than a crematorium chapel.

Whatever your thoughts, talk to us and we'll guide you through the funeral planning process. We will then check with your preferred funeral director fees and charges in our system that all prices and elements are correct before confirming with you. We will detail all the fees and charges giving you a final amount to pay. Whatever your agreed plans, the funeral directors services are guaranteed to be provided with no further costs at the time of need. There may be a contribution required at the time of need in relation to disbursement costs, see terms for full details.
