What is a Prepayment Funeral Plan?

A  funeral pre-payment plan allows you to make financial provision now for a funeral in the future. Whether that is a direct cremation or direct burial.

Our funeral plans are administered by Ecclesiastical Planning Service Limited, which is part of the Ecclesiastical Group. Ecclesiastical is a specialist financial services Group that has been protecting people, property and funds since 1887, and has managed funeral pre-payment funds since 2006.

The plans we offer give you exceptional financial security for your money. Every penny of the full value of the plan (excluding Ecclesiastical’s initial management fee of £225) is held securely in a whole of life assurance policy. Your funeral plan pre-payment is ring-fenced for your funeral and cannot be be used for anything else, for your peace of mind. The money is made immediately available to us at the time of need, enabling us to carry out the agreed funeral services. 

Our plans cover our direct costs and as long as we carry out the funeral and your requirements do not change, your family will not  be asked to pay a penny more toward our costs regardless of how long you live or what happens to funeral director’s costs in the meantime. You can also include a contribution towards third party costs, which are outside our control. Such costs might include venue charges where you select the crematorium, officant charges or doctor’s fees for cremation forms.

Where pre-purchasing a service that includes third party costs, for an additional £200 the following third party costs can be guaranteed, subject to terms and conditions:
– our partner crematorium,
– doctor’s fees, and
– courier charges for the dispatch of cremated remians. 

Payment is made directly to Ecclesiastical Planning Service Limited – we will advise you how this may be done.
