Choice of funeral plans

Illustrated here are a number of fully underwritten plans that include everything required for the funeral that is described; the plan can be added to in the future but only if it is desired. Funeral plans are quite often purchased based upon a general expectation and safe in the knowledge that a known level of service is fully underwritten. The purchaser leaves the option for varying the details with their family members should it be their wish.

However, funeral plans can contain a considerable amount of personal choice and it may be for this reason that a plan is purchased. In such circumstances it is best that we meet to discuss every detail that you wish noted for your funeral; this may be everything from the choice of coffin to the music that is played at the funeral to the words on a memorial afterwards. We will always provide you with an itemised quotation for your plan.

Thinking about your own funeral is never an easy thing to do, but planning ahead can bring real peace of mind. With our funeral plans, you can rest assured that your personal funeral wishes will be recorded and you can cover your selected funeral director’s costs. As long as your requirements don’t change, your family won’t be asked to pay a penny more for these costs, regardless of how long you live or what happens to costs in the meantime.

You can also include a contribution towards third party costs (if relevant). Please refer to the Terms and Conditions for more information.

Of course, making the right choice matters and this website is designed to help guide you through the options available to ensure your funeral plan is right for you. Once you’ve set up your plan, you can get on with life knowing that your funeral arrangements are taken care of.

Personalise your funeral plan to suit your needs

Whether you would like a ‘no frills’ cremation or a more comprehensive funeral service, our pre-paid funeral plan advisors can help design a plan to suit you.

Funeral plan options

You can choose from a range of set plans, based on the most commonly requested funeral arrangements, or create your own personalised plan. All plans are flexible and can be amended or added to once fully paid. There may be additional costs if you add new features and services to your plan. You may also like to think about any readings, music or other special requests that you would like your plan to include. This information will be recorded by us and kept safely until it is needed.

Paying for your funeral plan

You can pay for your funeral plan by single payment, over a range of instalment periods or a combination of both. There is an additional cost for paying by instalments for 2 years or more and Terms and Conditions apply.
