If you’re worried about your family being able to afford your funeral when you die, you might have considered a funeral plan. But how does a funeral plan work?
In it’s most simple form, a funeral plan allows you to pay for your funeral upfront, so that your loved ones don’t have to cover the costs themselves, although they can pay for your funeral using money from your estate as soon as you pass, a pre-paid funeral plan gives them one less thing to think about at that difficult time.
You can buy a funeral plan from through a provider like Legacy or directly from a funeral director. With us you’ll have the choice of either paying a lump sum, interest free instalments over 1 or 2 years or monthly over the course of up to ten years. We offer a range of funeral plans starting from £2275, take a look at our funeral plans page for more information.
What is included in your own funeral plan with vary depending on the provider you choose and they may not cover everything you need for a funeral.
Funeral plans tend to cover viewings of the deceased, a limousine procession and a church service. Other aspects such as burial plots and traditional costs such as flowers are not included. As some plans don’t cover everything for your funeral, it’s important that you get your funeral plan through a provider that has your best interests at heart.
Selecting the right funeral plan for you can be difficult as you may not fully understand what is required to cover a funeral. The best course of action is to get in touch with an experienced funeral plan provider that can help you to select the right funeral plan for you and your family.
