The Interdependent Way

Independent Way is a totally bespoke funeral plan that allows us to tailor the funeral arrangements to the exact requirements of the client no matter how simple or complex they may be.

With such a variety of choice available such as motorbike and lorry hearses, a whole variety of eco friendly coffins, woodland burials, religious and secular celebrants and an increasing demand for repatriation, the Independent Way ensures we create a funeral that meets your requirements.
