Pre-paid funeral plans are a way of sorting out your financial affairs so that the cost of the funeral is covered in your lifetime and the responsibility for payment is not left to your loved ones or executor. A funeral plan is a way of ensuring that you receive the funeral that you would want and that any special requirements you may have can be included within the plan.

It is now possible to pre-arrange a funeral, this involves you completing a form ( see attached ) which records your funeral wishes, this can then be returned to us which we will keep on file until needed. This option would not involve any cost to yourself as payment is not made in advance of the funeral. We recommend that you take a copy of your pre-arrangement form and keep this with your personal papers and inform your executor or next-of-kin. Instructions can be amended by you at any time.
Pre-arrangement is an option particularly suitable for those whose funeral expenses will be met for life assurance policies or from the sale of assets from there estate as it is designed to let you make a record of your wishes but without the financial commitment of a funeral plan.
