Funeral Plans

Funeral PlansAbout our pre-arranged funeral plans

More and more people are choosing to pre-arrange their funeral to reduce the emotional worry and anxiety for loved ones. Some of the other benefits include:

 Put financial provision in place in advance
 Make your funeral wishes known and discuss them with your family
 Select your funeral director
 You can tailor your plan to suit your preferences and include any special wishes
 Ensure your family have access to expert help and advice at a difficult time
 No upper age limit
 No complicated medical forms to complete

Our plans guarantee that our funeral director’s costs (as set out in the plan paperwork) are covered as long as we carry out the funeral and your requirements don’t change. You can also choose to make a contribution towards third party costs which are outside our control, such as the fees for cremation or burial, medical fees and payment to a minister or officiant.

One of the main reasons that we recommend taking out one of our funeral plans is because they provide outstanding financial security for your money. All plan monies are held securely in whole of life assurance policies for extra peace of mind.

With a funeral plan from us, you can make top-ups or update your plan details at any time, and you can choose to pay upfront or by monthly instalments over 1, 2, 3 4 or 5 years. There is an additional cost for paying by instalments over 2, 3, 4 or 5 years. This additional cost is held within the plan and used for your funeral when the time comes. Additional Instalment Payment Terms and Conditions apply – please ask for details.

Terms and conditions apply to funeral plans – please ask for details.
