Planning ahead brings peace of mind

Or contact us for further information and perhaps arrange an informal chat.

Many people find it hard to talk about their own funeral arrangements. We do think however, it is a good idea to talk about such matters so that when your time comes we can adhere to your exact wishes and make things easier on the ones you leave behind. With our plans you can go into as much or as little detail as you wish, your plan, your choice.

Some people wish to provide for their funeral expenses, and a prepaid funeral plan is a caring, sensible and cost-effective way to do so. It's also a straightforward way to ease the financial and emotional burden on your family.

Planning ahead for your funeral is one of the most thoughtful and caring things you can do. Some people never get round to discussing funeral wishes with their loved ones, which can lead to all sorts of worry and anxiety when the time comes. Taking out a funeral plan is a simple and straightforward way to remove this worry, and it can provide real financial benefits too.

Some of the other benefits include:
• Pre-arrange the details of your funeral and record any special wishes, such as hymns, music choices and any other personal touches you would like your plan to include
• Make financial provision for your funeral
• Choose your funeral director in advance
• Ensure your family has access to expert help at what can be a difficult time.

Our funeral plan is available to UK residents and there are no complicated medical forms to complete. You can also appoint a nominated representative who we will keep informed about your plan, according to your instructions.

Our plans cover our costs (as specified in the plan paperwork) as long as we carry out the funeral and your requirements don’t change. You can also make a contribution towards third party costs, such as the cremation fees. These costs are outside of our control.

All funeral plan pre-payments are held in an individual whole of life assurance policy for your peace of mind.
