WILLS

Only 30% of people in this country have made a Will. This is because we do not like thinking about death and we are unaware of the importance of having a professionally drafted Will. Once a person overcomes their fears and makes a Will they find that it is a positive step that gives them great peace of mind. They are reassured that their affairs are in order.

If you die without a Will you die “intestate” meaning the intestacy laws set out which of your family members inherit and the amount. Your spouse will not necessarily inherit all of your estate and if you are unmarried your Partner will not inherit anything.

A legally valid Will, carefully prepared by a qualified expert Solicitor, will ensure that:

  • you provide for your loved ones in the way you wish;
  • you choose the Executors who will administer your estate;
  • you choose the Guardians for your minor children; and
  • you can take steps to reduce the Inheritance Tax payable.

You can also choose to appoint Lodge Brothers Legal Services as the Executors of your Will. We will ensure that your estate is dealt with promptly and efficiently so that your loved ones do not have the responsibility but do receive their inheritance as quickly as possible.

Fixed fee from £275 (£330 inc. VAT).
Our professional services offer peace of mind to you and your family.

PROBATE ATTORNEY

When a family member or loved one dies, dealing with estate administration is often the last thing on a person’s mind. We offer an efficient, professional and above all personal service to make your life easier at such a distressing time.

When a person dies leaving a valid Will, the appointed Executors need to apply for a Grant of Probate to administer the Deceased’s estate. If there is no Will, the laws of intestacy apply, and the law sets out which family member is entitled to apply for a Grant of Letters of Administration and administer the estate.

The process of administering an estate is commonly known as probate and involves:

  1. ascertaining the value of the Deceased’s assets and liabilities;
  2. dealing with the Inland Revenue Inheritance Tax return;
  3. preparing the probate papers;
  4. applying to the Probate Registry for the Grant of Probate or Grant of Letters of Administration; and
  5. collecting in the assets of the estate and settling the liabilities once the Grant is received.

Probate will be required to sell or transfer a house, sell or transfer shares and in most cases to close bank accounts. The assistance required by the Executors will depend on the finances of the Deceased, the terms of the Will, the family circumstances and how much work the Executors are willing or able to do.

Brentford Says Final Farewell to Flight Lieutenant Owen Burns – Battle of Britain Veteran

Lodge Bothers funeral directors Surbiton and Funeral Directors Twickenham have had the privilege of conducting hundreds of funerals and memorials for some of Britain’s most loved people. They recently conducted a private funeral service for Flight Lieutenant Owen Burns.

original original original

Local resident Flight Lieutenant Owen Valentine Burns, who was an air gunner on Bristol Blenheims during the Battle of Britain – making him one of Churchill’s ‘The Few’ – has died at the age of 99.

Owen was born in Birkenhead on 20th November 1915 but moved to Brentford in 1983 where he joined Deborah, also from Birkenhead, who subsequently became his wife.

Owen, who was just a few months short of his 100th birthday, when he died on 30 June 2015, had volunteered for the RAF on 3 October 1939, joining up as a wireless operator/air gunner.
Owen joined 235 Squadron, a Coastal Command Squadron assigned to Fighter Command to replace losses incurred during the Battle for France and flew with them throughout the Battle of Britain.

On 11th September 1940 he was one of 6 Blenheims escorting 6 Albacores of the Fleet Air Arm to Calais to torpedo the German fleet. On arrival they were greeted by anti-aircraft fire and then attacked by 25+ ME 109s. Fortunately the attack only lasted a few minutes, it is presumed because the Messerschmitts were low on fuel returning from an attack in SE England but only 3 Albacores and 4 Blenheims made it back. (This is an official entry in Lord Dowding’s Diary).

On 14 February 1941 Burns’ Blenheim was caught in an enemy raid while returning from a night patrol over the North Sea. The aircraft crashed on landing as the flare path lighting the airfield had been extinguished. The observer was killed and the pilot spent a year in hospital, but Owen escaped with a broken collar bone – could the date Valetine’s Day be significant?

In January 1945 he was appointed Gunnery Officer for 19 Group, Plymouth and a month later he became PA to Air Officer Commanding Air Vice Marshal CBS Spackman. Owen left the RAF in March 1948.

After the war Owen worked in the North West of England for a whisky company before coming to London after his retirement. He became involved in Battle of Britain activities and as recently as 10 June 2015, Owen and Deborah attended a tea for members of the Battle of Britain Fighter Association hosted by the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.

He was also recently presented to Her Majesty the Queen and His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh at the opening of the new visitor centre ‘The Wing’ at the National Memorial to ‘The Few’ in Capel le Ferne, Kent in March.

Owen died peacefully on 30th June 2015 in hospital after a short illness and is survived by his wife Deborah, his 6 daughters and his son.

Lodge Brother are here to help in time of need

by on Jan.18, 2014, under Funeral Planning, Funeral Services, Personal

District Manager Bill Wilde covers quite a few miles at this time of year playing Santa when not looking after clients. Gifts on behalf of the Directors and staff at lodgebros.co.uk are delivered out to nursing and residential homes for staff and residents to enjoy.

Bill said, “The planning starts as early as September which is when I start getting the presents ready and distributed out to each of the branches in my District. As soon as December arrives, every opportunity I get, I am out on the road delivering until the task is complete. Covering a large area, which includes Esher, Addlestone, Weybridge, Walton and Windsor, needs some planning.

But it is worth it especially when I see the enjoyment it brings. My job looking after families is very important, but this is something that I really enjoy at this time of year”.

Lodge Brothers understand how difficult decisions can be especially when its children, they have a large selection of Childrens Memorials and will help you make the right choice.

Breakfast Meetings at Sunrise Senior Living

December 27th, 2013

Bill Wilde, District Manager who looks after the Surrey and Berkshire area on behalf of the Memorial Restoration family business, has been attending meetings at Sunrise, Weybridge, every three months, an initiative started by the residential home earlier in the year.
Bill said, “They start at seven thirty in the morning with a working breakfast, and are attended by several businesses from the local area. The main areas of discussion are where we are able to better serve the local community working with each other. For example, our Branch Arrangers may be asked about Probate or where care may be obtained for elderly parents, and working in partnership with our local businesses means that we can direct them to the correct people for help and advice. On the plus side, I have made new friends and it has been enjoyable attending these seminars”.

Lodge Brothers have a large range of Kerb Set Memorials and Classic Memorials where permitted, a memorial may cover the full length of the grave giving a wide variety of choice and design. They have put together some of the many designs available and often modify each design to suit individual requirements (eg adding or removing vase posts). The area in the centre can be left for planting, filled with chippings or covered with an internal or external coverslab.
