Lodge Brothers serving the community for over 200 years

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you start to think about preparing for your passing? It could be that you want to prepare a will to ensure that your assets are evenly and fairly split between family members or to ensure that special items are guaranteed to be transferred to a specific person because of personal reasons which a legal attorney will not be privy to. It might be decided what kind of funeral you would prefer, so that you can take this burden off your friends and family who will be grieving your loss and so that you could ease their stress or because you have a particular vision for your funeral or memorial service. Or is it that you want to ensure that all of your viable organs are donated to the living once you are passed, or perhaps just a specific aspect of your physical body that you wish to donate to science and the like.

There are so many aspects to the passing of an individual that most times, we forget that there are legal requirements as well as the will, which come into play. Especially if you have never had to be involved in the legal side of the passing of an individual, you would not have been exposed to certain aspects of the process. Without knowing what can be required, families can be left shell-shocked and unsure of how to execute all of the decisions which they will need to navigate if you do not choose to make these decisions for them.

This is why Lodge Brothers Probate Walton offers a number of special services that are pre-paid and which will alleviate your family’s stress and give you the final say in how you would like your affairs to be handled. These services include the preparation of last wills in testament, lasting powers of attorney and pre-paid Probate Woking services.

Choosing Probate West Byfleet services is a way in which you can assure that your final life decisions will be a certainty. Probate Ashford is required for ascertaining the value of your assets and liabilities, finalising any inheritance tax, preparing probate-related paperwork such as grants of Probate or Grant of Letters of Administration as well as collecting your assets within your estate and dealing with any liabilities after the Grant has been received. And to make things even easier and more certain, Lodge Brothers Probate  Weybridge Legal Services offers this service with fees that are both fixed and guarantees ensuring no unexpected surprises will meet your loved ones at the end of your life’s journey.

Probate Shepperton is a service that most people will need in order to sell or transfer property and shares and also in order to close bank accounts: all things which are very admin based and entrenched within legal systems which can be daunting to anyone who does not have knowledge of these areas. Probate is best left to the professionals which is why a visit to the Lodge Brother Legal Services team for a free, no-obligation quote is the best gift you could leave to your family when the times comes.

Understanding your industry is what IBS does best. Understanding the special equipment that your company uses and knowing how important it is to the functioning of your day to day business is the business of the professionals at IBS.

All industries from the food and beverage industry, the vast chemical and pharmaceutical industry, and the like, demands accurate and consistent industrial mixing equipment for the smooth running of the business. With Industrial mixing equipment there is no room for error as any small inconsistency can ruin the quality of your products resulting in a large amount of wastage which can sink your business, especially when the products are expensive per capita or made in quickly and in large quantities. Entire batches can cost you dearly with loss of product or worse, loss of your customer to your competitor. IBS chooses only the best products for your business which is why there are always plentiful stocks of Mix srl for mixing systems or their components and Olocco company for rotary and diverter valves.

Sure i t is recognised that over the years, very little has changed in the function of pumps and valves however the application has become more diverse which is why certain specialised products, which have been designed for low airspeed airflow such as Gvf impianti can have a large and sustained impact on your business and that of the industry in which you operate. Dense conveying equipment used for low and high transfer rates of rough or abrasive materials where a dense phase convey produces the optimal result which is required for a large section of pneumatic conveying industry. This is a low-speed, slow and steady-style system which is why it is vital that the margin for error is minimal. Many pneumatic conveying specialists will understand that the correct conveyance phase for highly abrasive materials is most desired in order to meet the handling of your material requirements.

No matter the speed of the product output for your business needs it is important to utilise the systems which will help you to achieve your business goals and partnering with IBS will guarantee this result. Quality and quantity can mean different outcomes in different environments and not one size will fit all, in the fast-paced engineering and industrial business.

It’s important that you remain alert, vigilant and secure at all times. To prevent personal and business data loss.

Tip 4 – Phishing links can be hidden in attachments

Not all phishing emails may contain a link within the copy of the email. Scammers can also embed links within attachments to avoid detection by email spam filters. E.g. PDF or Word doc.

If an email does not come from a source you know. Don’t open up any attachments. Speak to your IT team before hand.

Tip 5 – Real logos and brands

Scammers very often use real brand logos & branding. It’s very easy for them to pull these logos off the internet and to make a fake looking email or web page that mimics the real thing. Before you know it you have entered you secure details and they have captured them.

Always double check the source such as the domain name. Make sure the site you are on has a valid SSL certificate.

Tip 6 – Poor grammar and spelling

As soon as you see poor grammar & spelling, be suspicious. Many scammers originate from countries where English is not the first language. This can be very helpful in flagging a phishing campaign.

Bespoke Funerals with Lodge Brothers Funeral Directors

Lodge Brothers has been in the business of funerals for many decades and have experience with every kind of funeral or memorial. As times change, so do the desires of the families of those who have passed away but the intention to celebrate their lives remains the same. Lodge Brothers Funeral Services understands these changing times and has kept up with the needs of their clients allowing them to arrange whichever type of bespoke funerals they may have.

Lodge

Society in the UK and indeed across the world is so vastly diverse when it comes to religious beliefs, cultural, ethnic and social origins, orientation and conscience that one funeral plan would not be enough to suit all. Through the generations it has been important to stay current with trends and it is important for funeral service providers to be able to provide individual funerals to suit the diverse society in which we all live. Differences in society are all to be recognised and celebrated equally which is foremost on the minds of Lodge Brothers Funeral Directors.

Modern Funerals are popularised through movies and social media and are gaining acceptance within the larger population, especially the younger generations. Old style funerals which were accepted as the norm are becoming out-dated as all around the world, different cultures and origins become blended and families seek more original funerals for their loved ones.

Trends include using more up-beat music, bright and varied colours, and a party style atmosphere with the tone and location of the funerals as a way of changing funerals from a sad and somber expression of sadness into time to appreciate life of those who have shared theirs with each other, whether it be current or past. Some traditions speak to more ancient rituals of ancestry celebrations which can be seen in some alternative funerals stemming from southern America and Mexico.

Professional funeral services

Lodge Brothers funeral services is always here to help. We know how unpredictable life can be on a daily basis and that things happen when you least expect it. This is why we make ourselves available at any time on any day, by phone or email. With 533,253 deaths in Wales and the UK in 2017. The office of National statistics shows that the provisional number of deaths registered in England and Wales in the week ending 31 August 2018 was 7,865. Yourmoney.com reports that “Around 60% of UK adults still haven’t made a will, according to new research from Unbiased.co.uk, leaving around 31 million people at risk of dying intestate. If you die without a will your estate will be distributed solely according to intestacy law, which may not reflect your wishes.”

Karen Barrett, CEO and founder of Unbiased, said “It’s clear that many people think they’re just not ‘rich enough’ to need a will. This ignores the fact that a will makes inheritance a far quicker process – do they really want to keep their loved ones waiting longer, when that money might be badly needed? It also doesn’t take into account the complexity of modern families, which intestacy law simply doesn’t address. Children from previous marriages could end up receiving nothing at all.”

At Lodge Brothers, we agree that this is the essential issue surrounding those who pass away without a will and encourage customers who we meet on a daily basis, not to find themselves in the same position as their loved ones who have gone before them. The financial consequences when a loved one dies affects the whole family and especially when there is a young family involved, this can have lasting and irreversible long-lasting effects on the family unit and extended family members. While you may not feel that you are rich enough to have a will, consider what the effects would be on your family should they have to love just one month or one week if you are a weekly paid individual.

At Lodge Brothers we have options to suit every pocket and take pride in extending a helping hand to our hundreds of clients in our local areas. You can find our offices in your local areas simply by visiting our website and searching by location. You will find that we have offices in all locations and we offer additional probate services. For example, should you be looking for probate in Chertsey, Ham or Guildford, simply search probate Chertsey, probate Ham or probate Guildford to find your local branch and contact telephone number or email address. Otherwise you can go to our branch locator search feature, capture your nearest branch, town name of post code, for ease of access to information concerning all services we offer.  If you’d like to know a little more about our services, we can send our ‘Guide to Arranging A Funeral’ to your home, or you can view and download a PDF.

Convenient dating service

Dukes of Daisy is a business that provides a niche’ service for a growing market. http://www.kitv.com reported at the end of August 2018 that ‘There is no doubt that there is an increase in the use of escorts not only in the United Kingdom but across the globe, with many people beginning to appreciate the fact that they can appear at an event looking stunning and turning heads not particularly due to what they are putting on, but actually due to who they are having on – beautiful, gorgeous, attractive lady.” (PRDistribution.com)

With an increased need for escorts and rent a date, around the country, Dukes of Daisy is in the unique position of being able to offer a service which is not only easy to access, simple to understand and where there are no hidden costs or surprises. What makes us unique is the transparency under which we operate. This is a “what you see if what you get’ services which we believe is the reason for our on-going success. Clients are coming back time again to enjoy the company of different individuals for different occasions.

The term “escort service” has long gone hand in hand with the concept of “sex on order”. Dukes of Daisy breaks that mould and offers the unique opportunity to young men and women around the country a vehicle through which they can reach out and meet new people. Studies have shown that more and more young people are using technology to meet new people and that the ability to instantly access friends online, is what people are looking for.  Human beings on the whole reply on technology to fill a gap in their social lives. However at the end of the day, there is a life outside of the computer and human nature will inevitable move people to meet and be social. And this is where Dukes of Daisy has the unique market of providing friends for people who are able to get to know each other as slowly or as quickly as they prefer.

Other services in the sex industry are costly and not affordable to many young folks. We have taken this into account and allowed our rent a friend to choose their rates so that when a young man or woman is looking for company, they have to power to choose what is going to suit them. Matched with the ability to search for partners who have similar interests as you, people often save money using our website rather than wasting money on date after date with someone who often turns out not to have the looks they may have portrayed, nor the same interests. Dukes of Daisy offers a safe and easy alternative to going out with strangers, or meeting strangers. We are in the business of creating friendships and connections and are happy to report that for many of our clients, these introductions have led to life-long relationships of every kind.
