ABOUT OUR
PRE-PAID
FUNERAL PLANS

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.

What’s more, there are no complicated medical forms to complete.

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.

For more information, please download our funeral plans brochure.
