About Ecclesiastical Planning Services
Our pre-paid funeral plans are provided by a trusted national provider, Ecclesiastical Planning Services.
As part of a specialist, UK-based financial services group, Ecclesiastical Planning Services has offered pre-payment funeral plans since 2006. When you take out a funeral plan with us, Ecclesiastical Planning Services arranges for the funds to be held in an individual whole of life assurance policy. The full value of your plan, excluding the administration fee and any instalment charges, is ring-fenced and cannot be used for anything but your funeral when the time comes.
Ecclesiastical Planning Services is part of a large Group that gives available profits to charity and is proud to have been named the UK’s 3rd largest corporate donor to charities (2023/2024)1. In addition, Ecclesiastical Planning Services is recognised by the National Association of Funeral Directors for treating customers fairly (2022).
