Bespoke funeral planner in Brackley

Hi, I’m Samantha. I grew up in the charming village of Greatworth and moved to Brackley 30 years ago to raise my two incredible children. Throughout this time, I worked part-time to accommodate my family’s needs.

In 2016, I joined The Co-operative Funeral Care, specifically WJ Franklin & Son, as a funeral arranger in Brackley. With dedication and passion, I quickly advanced to managing the branch and organizing funeral services for clients, friends, and even my own family. Along the way, I developed strong relationships with the local town council, ministers, civil celebrants, and businesses. Many of the people I encountered during this journey have become lifelong friends.

Having experienced various aspects of my clients’ needs during such a difficult time, I gained extensive knowledge and identified areas where additional support is essential for those who have lost their loved ones. My goal is to provide you and your family with a personalised service that meets your individual requirements when you find yourself faced with planning a funeral.

There is no predetermined plan for you to select from. Instead, I offer the flexibility of meeting you in the comfort of your own home, with your family present or even through a video call if that’s more convenient.

Regardless of how much involvement you prefer, I will be there to support, guide, and provide you and your family with a tailored service. Together, we will embark on a farewell journey with your loved one, ensuring that I am By Your Side every step of the way.


I offer guidance and support including:

  Flexible home visits including family video calls
  Coordinating and liaising with your chosen funeral director
  Assist with all aspects of administration and stationery
  Accompany you with appointments that you attend
  Source and booking of wake venue, catering and flowers
  Coordinating travel and accommodation needs
  Arranging of themed ceremonies and memorial services
  Helping with all aspects and services of after-care
