Funeral Plans

Scollen & Wright are approved to offer funeral plans from Golden Charter, the UK’s leading independent funeral plan provider

A funeral plan allows you to pay for a funeral director’s services at today’s prices.  It reduces the financial and emotional stress and burden upon your loved ones at a difficult time.

Over the past ten years, funeral costs have risen 88% and the trend is set to continue. This makes the purchase of a funeral plan a sound financial decision.

A range of funeral plans are available to suit all budgets

About Us

Learn more about Scollen & Wright

Scollen & Wright was established in 1992 by Alan Scollen to serve Sunderland and the surrounding areas.

Alan still owns the business today which is now recognised as being one of Sunderland’s leading independent funeral directors. Scollen & Wright have now expanded into other parts of the North East.

As a company, we are local, family owned and operated which means that we do not have a faceless head office with whom we have to consult.

When you deal with us, we are the people who prepare the funeral from the beginning to end so you deal with real and friendly people right from the start.

Memorial Items

We are able to supply a range of memorial items to help you remember you loved one in the way that you choose.
