Our NEW - Value Plan

In addition to our 4 core plans, we have just launched a brand new funeral plan option – the Value Plan starting from £2,895, giving you an even wider choice of plans to suit your needs.

What's included?

As well as the funeral director’s own services, the cost of a funeral also includes certain essential third party costs. These include fees for cremation or burial and for the clergy or officiant. These costs are beyond the control of your funeral director but will be paid by them at the time. The Value, Standard, Select, Premier Plans include a £940 allowance towards essential third party costs. The Base Plan has no allowance included and so these costs must be paid for at the time of the funeral.

The NEW - Value Plan includes:

  • Funeral Directors services.
  • A simple coffin
    Typically, a plain, veneered coffin
  • Transportation of the deceased to a suitable resting place
    Cover Mainland UK only, during normal office hours
  • A Hearse
  • Includes allowance of £940 towards third party costs such as crematorium and officiants’ fee
  • The funeral director will choose the date and time of funeral
  • Funeral Service - At the place of burial or cremation
  • The use of a chapel of rest or service rooms
  • Funeral procession – not included.
    The deceased is transferred directly from the funeral director's premises to the funeral location
