When choosing the best funeral plans, price of course is important but there are some differences between plan providers that you may want to take into consideration. We can help you look at the options available to you so you can be certain to choose a funeral plan that fully meets your requirements.
For example, we can show you:
- Which plan providers offer fully guaranteed 3rd party (disbursements) and who offers an allowance – something other companies are unlikely to point out!?
- Who offers free joint funeral plans for couples?
- How the Fixed Monthly Payment options vary and what to look out for?
- Who will transport the body back to your chosen place anywhere in the UK for free?
- Who has the highest cancellation fees, should you change your mind after the initial free cancellation period?
- Which funeral plans can be transferred to another funeral director should you move home?
- Which provider offers the best instalment terms over longer periods?

How secure is your money?
We only recommend pre-paid funeral plans from providers who are members of the Funeral Planning Authority (FPA) and National Federation of Funeral Directors.
Your money is paid directly to the funeral plan provider and is then placed into either an independent trust or a life insurance fund which is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
All trusts are separate independently managed legal entities which are audited by independent accountants and auditors.
This means that should your funeral director go into liquidation your money and funeral will be protected and the plan provider will reallocate your plan to another local funeral director.
Why Are People Talking About Funeral Care Plans?
There has been an increase in the attention people are giving funeral costs and funeral planning. Funeral Plan Providers are also seeing a rise in interest from people who want to get a funeral care plans in place.
But why are people really talking about it?
One main reason: The cost of a basic funeral has risen, on average, by 9% annually and is projected to increase more in the coming years. The national average cost of a basic funeral is £4,078 and this figure does not include discretionary costs for things such as flowers, catering, order of service, and etc.
More and more people and families are being affected by what is now called ‘Funeral Debt’ and ‘Funeral Poverty‘.
Funeral Debt is the amount of money added on to someone’s existing financial obligations as a result of relying on credit for funeral costs. Funeral Poverty is when funeral costs are beyond someone’s ability to pay.
Funeral Care Plans and Funeral Plan Providers give people an opportunity to spread the cost of a funeral rather than leaving it to their close family and friends to deal with when they are gone.
The attention being given to funeral costs and funeral care plans has given many people an opportunity to plan ahead and cut down the soaring costs of an inevitable life event.
