The advantages of a pre-payment plan

Many people wish to make financial provision for their funeral and a funeral pre-payment plan is a caring, sensible and cost-effective way to do so.

By taking some time now you can provide both financial and practical help for your loved ones in the future. It can be comforting and reassuring to know you’ve taken care of these essential arrangements. What’s more, putting plans in place needn’t be as distressing as you might think.

A funeral plan through us guarantees that our direct costs will be covered, no matter how much prices rise. As long as we carry out your funeral and your requirements don’t change, your family won’t be asked to pay a penny more for our direct costs regardless of how long you live or what happens to costs in the meantime.

The plan can also include a contribution towards third party costs such as the fees for cremation or burial, medical fees and payment to a minister or officiant. Please refer to the Terms and Conditions for more details.

I'm so pleased with the plan At every opportunity I will tell my friends.

It's the sensible thing to do and very easy. I would recommend it to anyone.
