How to Purchase a Plan

Buy Online

Pre-paid funeral plans now available to buy online

With the launch of our new buy-online system, you can now purchase a pre-paid funeral plan online.
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.

Online application

The online application can be completed in just a few minutes. Ecclesiastical Planning Services then arranges for the funeral plan pre-payment to be held in a guaranteed whole of life assurance policy until it is needed. Every penny (minus the management fee) is ring-fenced and cannot be used for any other purpose.

The whole of life assurance company used is authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) and regulated by the PRA and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Funeral plans themselves are not regulated by the PRA or FCA, but Ecclesiastical Planning Services is registered with the Funeral Planning Authority.
