Funeral Plans

Pre-arranged funeral plans

Planning for later life is never an easy thing to do, but it can be comforting and reassuring to know that you’ve taken care of your arrangements, including your funeral. By taking some time now, you can provide both financial and practical help for your loved ones in the future.

If you’ve ever had to arrange a funeral for someone, you’ll know just how much there is to decide and how difficult it can be. Many people never get round to talking to their families about the kind of funeral they would like. This can lead to all sorts of worry and anxiety for loved ones when the time comes.

A pre-arranged funeral plan is a simple and straightforward way of removing this worry and can provide real peace of mind for you and your family.

We deal with funeral plans on behalf of customers on a daily basis and see the difference they can make. What’s more, making funeral arrangements needn’t be as distressing as you might think.

Funeral Costs Are Steadily Increasing

Funeral costs continue to rise and further increases are predicted in coming years so it makes sense to make financial provision in advance.

The funeral plans we offer cover our funeral director’s costs. As long as we carry out your funeral and your requirements don’t change, your family won’t be asked to pay a penny more for our funeral director’s costs regardless of how long you live or what happens to our costs in the meantime.

Also included is an allowance towards third party costs such as the fees for cremation or burial, medical fees and payment to a minister or officiant. Please refer to the Terms and Conditions for more information.

What Happens To My Money?

We offer funeral plans from Golden Charter who are one of the UK’s leading funeral plan providers. The plans we offer give you exceptional financial security for your money.

Unlike some plans, every penny of the full value of the plan (excluding the administration fee) is held securely in a Trust and ring-fenced for your funeral. The money is made immediately available at the time of need and the funds cannot be used for anything other than your funeral for total peace of mind.

Our preferred funeral plan provider is Golden Charter who is a member of the Funeral Planning Authority (FPA).

Complete Peace Of Mind For You And Your Family

Whether you want a funeral that celebrates your life or something more traditional, a funeral plan lets you:

“It can be comforting and reassuring to know that you have taken care of your funeral arrangements in advance”
