Why should I buy a plan?

In this section

A pre-paid funeral plan gives you the opportunity to arrange and make provision for your funeral, so you can be sure that when the time comes your family won't have to worry.

We have a range of plans and payment options available - so whatever your requirements we have a plan to suit your needs. 

The benefits of a pre-paid plan 

There are a range of emotional and financial benefits that planning ahead and arranging your funeral service can provide. We'll take you through our range of plans step-by-step so that you can make an informed decision.

How pre-paid funeral plans work 

Whichever funeral plan you choose, it's possible to spread the cost over a period of time that's convenient for you and your budget. 

Our range of plans 

To make planning your funeral as simple as possible, we offer two types of funeral plan. Our Without Ceremony plan offers a simple, set plan for an unattended cremation.

And our Bespoke Plan allows you to choose every aspect - simply speak to a member of our funeral team for more information.

How are the funds held? 

Your funeral plan pre-payment is administered by Ecclesiastical Planning Services, a trusted national provider. The money you pay (minus the initial administration fee and any payments to insure the plan if paying by instalments over two years or more) is held in an individual whole of life policy and ring-fenced for your funeral when it's needed. It can't be used for anything else, for your peace of mind. 

Without Ceremony

This cremation only plan has no ceremony, making it a cost-effective option, suitable for those who don't want a formal service.
