Pre-paid Funeral Planning
Sometimes it can be hard to talk to your family about your funeral wishes. With a pre-paid funeral plan, you can make your wishes known without upsetting anyone and then when the time comes they don’t have to worry about the decisions or about finances. Pre-paid funeral plans are a useful way to make funeral arrangements in advance at a time when you and your family are not upset and emotional.
Here are some commonly asked questions…
What is a pre-paid funeral plan?
A pre-paid funeral plan allows you to make provision for your funeral arrangements while you are still alive. By paying for them in advance and making decisions so your family don’t have to.
What is so good about them?
You can make informed decisions about what you want to happen for your funeral in advance while you are not under any stress and are fit and healthy. This means that you are not as emotional as your family would be making choices once you have died.
Where does my money go?
The money is invested by our funeral planning partner. Ecclesiastical Planning Services. Ecclesiastical invest your money into a whole of life insurance product which is protected and is also regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
So after I have paid my money I will never be asked for any more?
Ecclesiastical guarantee that the plan will rise each year. The funeral director’s charges are guaranteed and you will not be asked for any more unless you change the arrangements. The third-party payments such as cemetery or crematorium fees and doctors’ fees are outside our control and are not guaranteed however most of the charges will be paid for within the plan and usually there would be only a small difference to be paid at the time of need.
