Pre-Paid Funeral Plans

What is a funeral plan?

A funeral plan is an easy way to pre-arrange the funeral you want and pay for the funeral director’s services covered by the plan in advance. A plan can help to save your family worry and expense, and help make things easier for your loved ones at what is often a difficult time. As our customers often tell us, that can be a big weight off your mind.

Why planning ahead makes great financial sense

You might be surprised to hear that, while the average cost of a funeral in 2010 was £2,713, by 2020 it was £4,115. That’s an increase of 52% in 10 years – well above the general rate of inflation.

I lost my mother suddenly in December and organising her funeral was the hardest thing I've ever had to do.

Peter, Susan and their staff provided a personal service from start to finish. Anything we asked of them was done quickly and without hesitation no matter what time of day.

The chapel of rest is warm, peaceful and homely and I felt at ease visiting my mother there.

I couldn't recommend them highly enough.
