Pre-Paid Funeral Plans

Since 2004 the average cost of UK funerals has grown by 112% reaching £4,078 and forecast to grow still further to £4,944 by 2022*. For more information click here.

However, an affordable Pre-Paid Funeral Plan purchased now provides a lump sum to pay for your later funeral costs in today’s money so that family and friends do not have to find the money to pay for funeral or cremation costs when you die.

Our recommended Funeral Plan provider helps you to put aside something for those you love the most. Your family will benefit from the security of knowing that if anything happens to you, then a payout will be made to the Funeral Firm. This payment can help make your family’s life a little easier at a time when it’s needed most.

We provide affordable funeral plans to affinity groups, inlcuding regimental associations, charities, employers and others.
