Pre-payment funeral plans

In this section

Planning ahead to save your family from financial burden and giving you peace of mind for the future.

Your funeral may lie many years in the future, but by planning and paying for it now you can:

Arrange every detail of your ceremony
You can pre-plan your funeral exactly the way you want it and let your loved ones know your wishes.

Make sure your family don’t have money worries
No matter how much prices or inflation rise in the future, your funeral can be paid for – saving your family from financial burden.

By choosing an East of England Co-op funeral plan, your funeral arrangements will always be safe in the hands of a considerate, local organisation that has been trusted by generations of families – for over 140 years.

Good reasons to arrange your funeral now...
Organise your funeral, your way – at today’s prices

As time goes on, the cost of funerals may continue to rise. Research shows that the average cost of a funeral over the last ten years has risen by almost 90%. If this trend continues, the average cost could reach as much as £23,000 in 30 years’ time.

Even over the next few years funeral costs could increase considerably, as you can see from the graph on this page. That’s why arranging and paying for your funeral now is wise – you only pay today’s prices (excluding disbursements at the time of the funeral).

Although you may continue to enjoy a happy life for many decades to come, your family won’t have to pay an extra penny in funeral costs when the time comes. The East of England Co-op will always honour your Funeral Plan, no matter how much prices have risen in the meantime.
