Funeral Plans

If you're planning ahead then why not take advantage of one of our funeral plans? Our funeral plans protect you and your family against ever rising funeral costs and offers you the convenience of paying for the funeral over an extended period of anything up to 10 years.

We provide funeral plans through Safe Hands Funeral Plans, one of the UK’s biggest, most recognised and most affordable providers of pre-paid funeral plans. We can provide further information on our funeral plans over the phone or we can visit you at home for a no obligation discussion at a time to suit you. Contact us today for more information on one of our funeral plans.

 

What is a Funeral Plan?

A funeral plan is a means by which to protect your family against rising funeral costs, and to eliminate any uncertainty or indecision regarding what your preferred funeral arrangements should include.

 

The passing of a loved-one is obviously a very daunting and emotional time for family and friends. For those responsible for arranging and paying for the funeral, discovering their loved-one had the foresight to take out a funeral plan goes an enormous way towards alleviating their sense of pain and distress.

Money paid into your funeral plan is invested securely in a ring-fenced trust fund and is overseen and managed by an independent panel of qualified Trustees. The prices of our funeral plans are slightly higher than our current at need prices, this is due to the fact that there is a management fee payable to set up the service and a slight increase in cost to help future proof the plan.

 

In line with all current legislation as set out under the ‘Regulated Activities Order’ (Financial Services and Marketing Act 2000) - Plan holders’ monies are invested securely in a ring-fenced trust fund that is overseen and managed by independent Trustees (in Safe Hands Funeral Plans’ case, with Pitmans Trustees Ltd).

Why Choose a Funeral Plan?

Tailored Funerals

All our funeral plans can be tailored to suit particular tastes and preferences... from the big things, like the date and location of the cremation... to the smaller things, like the choice of music or flowers.

Transferable Funerals

Your funeral plan can also be changed or upgraded at any time, and should you move home, it is transferable to any area within the UK at no extra charge.

Available to Everyone

Our funeral plans are available to everyone over the age of 18, regardless of health, medical history, or status.

Total Security

In common with all funeral planning companies, the money you pay towards your funeral plan is held securely in a trust fund, in Safe Hands' case, one that has been set up in conjunction with an award-winning firm of specialist solicitors, and that is overseen by an independent panel of qualified Trustees. Over time this money grows, ensuring that however long you live, there will always be sufficient money within the fund to cover the cost of the funeral director's fees and services.

Payment Flexibility

You can pay for your funeral plan in a single lump sum, or over 12 and 24 months interest free. Alternatively, you can spread the cost over an extended period of anything up to 10 years.
