Pre-paid funeral plans

Many people wish to provide for their own funeral expenses and to plan their own funeral arrangements. A Pre-payment funeral plan is a caring, sensible and cost effective way of doing so.

Our plans are administered by Funeral Planning Services Ltd in association with a network of Independent Funeral Directors throughout the UK. Funeral pre-payments are held in a Funeral Planning Trust and monitored by the Funeral Planning Authority.

The advantages of a pre-paid funeral plan:

  • You choose your funeral arrangements, for your own peace of mind
  • You save your family from having to make difficult decisions, trying to guess what you would have wanted, at such a distressing time
  • Avoid rising funeral costs with an inflation-proof guarantee of the Funeral Director’s charges
  • Financial security – the funeral payment is held in Funeral Planning Trust until it is needed
  • The service will be provided by us
  • There is no age limit and there are no awkward health questions
  • You can make a once-only payment or pay by monthly installments, which ever suits you
  • Complies with the Funeral Planning Authority Code of Practice and Financial Services and Markets Act 2000

Need help with the cost of a funeral?

If you have a problem with financing a funeral, speak to the Department of Works and Pensions (DWP) immediately. This should be done before you confirm the funeral order with us. The DWP will only fund or contribute towards the cost of a funeral if the immediate family is unable to pay for the funeral and the potential claimants and their immediate family are in receipt of certain state benefits.

The form required for making claims to the Department for Works and Pensions is SF200. This can be obtained from any DWP office, Job Centre or Citizen’s Advice Bureau.
