We can discuss any extras you might like included with your funeral director when you make your enquiries with us, and right up until the time of need. You can arrange to pay for these as they are agreed.
Yes, you can choose to have either a burial or cremation. The cost of the burial plot and headstone are not covered by the prepaid Funeral Plan and so you, or your loved ones, will need to arrange to pay for your burial plot and headstone separately.
It’s very simple. When you take out a plan, you’ll receive two copies of certification which include your allocated funeral director details. Give one of your certificates to your family or someone you know to keep safe. Then, when the time comes, your loved ones can use the contact details to get in touch with the funeral director. They should inform the funeral director about the death and provide a death certificate (which the funeral director can help with). The funeral director will then take care of all of the other arrangements which will be just as you set out in your plan.
We can send all of the correspondence to your address should you not want your loved one to know you have purchased a plan.
We have a network of respected funeral directors across the country, and will allocate a funeral director who is based as close to your home as possible. The funeral home will be chosen on this basis as well. All of our funeral directors are members of the National Association of Funeral Directors or British Institute of Funeral Directors.
Funeral director’s fees cover all of the elements of the funeral that your funeral director will provide, this includes hearses, limousines, care and preparation of the deceased, etc
Where a funeral home closes or changes hands, we will find a replacement for you.
Yes. When you are applying, simply make us aware of who it is for.
No, there are no medical examinations or questions. All of our funeral plans are available to anyone, regardless of their health or medical history.
