Shrewsbury’s WRR Pugh and Son Funeral Directors has partnered with the Newport-based Willmakers of the Midlands to provide free advice sessions regarding funeral planning, will writing, and estate planning.
Commencing with the topic of probate on 30 June, the advice sessions will take place at WRR Pugh and Son’s Longden Coleham base in Shrewsbury.
The sessions will be provided both free of charge and with no obligation, as the two companies aim to encourage people to avoid problems that can arise after the death of a loved one.
Ian McDougall, director at WRR Pugh, said that the group is “only too aware” of the issues of “finance and probate” that people often face following a funeral.
He added: “The first [session] will be on probate and will be held at our premises in Longden Coleham on June 30. Future sessions will cover power of attorney and wills.
“We were always keen for the meetings to take place face-to-face and with restrictions due to lift on June 21, thought it best to plan our first one for just after this date.”
While WRR Pugh has a history dating back four generations and over 130 years, Willmakers was founded by its current director David Raybould more than 20 years ago.
Raybould said: “The sessions in partnership with WRR Pugh will be an ideal opportunity for people to come along and find out what they should be thinking about.
“We will be able to provide answers to a range of questions that people will probably never have thought of and might just help prevent unnecessary problems for your loved ones in the future.”
