Pre-Paid Funeral Plans
About 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.
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.
Some of the 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

Many people wish to plan ahead for their funeral, with the main motivation being to reduce the worry for their loved ones. Often, people don’t get round to talking to their families about the kind of funeral they would like, which can lead to all sorts of anxiety for loved ones when the time comes. But taking out a pre-paid funeral plan is a sensible and cost-effective way to ensure your funeral wishes are known.
Our new, online funeral plans facility is provided by a leading UK funeral plan provider, Ecclesiastical Planning Services. It enables customers to plan and make provision for their funeral from home, in just 3 simple steps.
The online application can be completed in just a few minutes.
