Pre-Paid Plans

How does it all work

A funeral plan is an easy way to plan ahead. You simply choose the funeral plan you want and pre-pay for the cost of your funeral director’s services, at today’s prices. A funeral plan can save your family worry and expense, and help make things easier at a difficult time.

The funeral billing is comprised of two sections;

  • The funeral directors charge for all services provided directly by them (ie. Staff, vehicles, equipment and the coffin or casket)
  • Payments to third parties such as cemeteries, crematoria, ministers, doctors, churches and associated fees.

At the date of death the actual costs of the third party charges may differ from the contribution paid, together with the Consumer Prices Index increases, and any differences will either be payable or refundable to the funeral arranger.

The decision as to whether to include a contribution towards these third party payments is entirely your own decision, but our staff are available at any time to give advice in relation to this.

Funeral plan options

We offer four great plans so you can choose the one that suits your needs. Each plan includes the funeral director’s own services for either a cremation or burial and these costs are guaranteed to be covered. Each plan also includes a Will. We make sure all our plans are as flexible as possible. When you get in touch, one of our specialist team will be able to discuss your requirements and find the plan that fits you best. To compare the funeral planning services that you will receive within each type of plan, please see below.
