funeral plans

secure todays prices & peace of mind for the future

By taking out a funeral plan, you can not only clearly express your wishes but you can also cover the cost of the funeral in advance for your family and even spread this cost into small monthly payments over up to 5 years.

Whilst we are a smaller business, your funeral plan payment is held by an independent FCA certified trust, Plan with Grace, so you can rest assured your money will be protected in any eventuality. A funeral plan also ensures you secure the price of the funeral plan as it is today. This is important as, according to independent research from SunLife, the average cost of dying in the UK has increased by 13% since 2015 and continues to rise each year.
