Freeze the cost of your funeral by taking out a Funeral Plan!
The average cost of a funeral in 2017 was £4,078 that’s an increase of over 70% in the last decade. If this trend continues, a basic funeral could cost almost £7,000 in 10 years time.
By taking out a pre-paid funeral plan, you can ensure that these costs are covered in advance. In other words, the sooner you take out a funeral plan, the more you’re likely to save.
They say you can’t predict the future, but with a funeral plan you can!
Having to organise and pay for a funeral on your death can be both financially and emotionally demanding for your loved ones, particularly as Probate usually has to be finalised before funds from an estate are available.
A funeral plan is a simple, stress free way to arrange and pay for your funeral in advance; thereby protecting your loved ones from the burden of finding the money needed and relieving them of the stress of any uncertainty about your final wishes.
All monies paid into a plan are held in a fund which complies with all the relevant legislation as set out in the ‘Regulated Activities Order (Financial Services and Markets Act 2000).

- What happens when I pass away?
There is a 24 hour bereavement line which is used when a plan holder passes away. Once we receive notification that a plan holder has passed away we contact the funeral director and they then have direct contact with your family
- What happens if I pass away before all my monthly payments have been made?
If you have chosen to take out a funeral plan on a monthly payment scheme, we simply need the remaining balance of the instalments settling at the time of death. This will come from your family or estate.
- What distance will the funeral director cover to collect the deceased?
There are 10 miles included with each plan, but a charge of £1 per mile thereafter
- Can I buy a funeral plan for someone else?
