Pre-Paid Funerals

About Our Pre-Paid Funeral Plans

Planning ahead for your funeral is one of the most thoughtful and caring things you can do. Some people never get round to discussing funeral wishes with their loved ones, which can lead to all sorts of worry and anxiety when the time comes.

Taking out a funeral plan is a simple and straightforward way to remove this worry, and it can provide real financial benefits too. Some of the other benefits include:

  • Pre-arrange the details of your funeral and include any special wishes
  • Make financial provision for your funeral
  • Choose your funeral director in advance
  • Ensure your family has access to expert help and advice at a difficult time

What’s more, there are no complicated medical forms to complete.

Our plans cover your funeral costs (as specified in the plan paperwork) as long as we carry out the funeral and your requirements don't change.

Q. What happens if I move to a different part of the country?
If you move, you should be able to transfer your plan to a funeral director near your new home. However, there may be additional costs depending on local prices and not all funeral directors guarantee third party costs. Please refer to the Terms and Conditions for details or speak to us for more information.
Q. Can I buy a funeral plan for someone else?
