Taking the step to arranging your own funeral is a sensible and re-assuring thing to do, just like getting your will written. Rather than your family have the stress both emotionally and financially at a difficult time, by planning and paying for your funeral in advance you can take this anxiety and burden off them. You can also make sure you get the send-off you want, whether that is a simple cremation, or an elaborate funeral with a horse-drawn hearse. Take the time to decide what you want, and make your final farewell a celebration of your life.
As Independent Funeral Directors we are here to help you arrange your funeral with respect and thoughtfulness. We can help guide you through all the various options when planning your funeral, taking you through every step; it’s what we do every day.
We take immense pride in our level of service too. So you can rest assured that when the time comes everything will be taken care of; both financially and emotionally.
There is no medical required to take out a prepaid funeral plan and you can choose to take one out at any age. You may also decide to take out a plan for someone else such as a partner, parent or friend.
Once you have taken out a plan, there will be nothing more for your loved ones to pay towards the Funeral Directors services included in your plan.
There are a number of different options for you to decide how you would like to pay for your plan, you can either pay in a lump sum or split the cost over a number of years in a way that is affordable to you and your budget.
The average cost of a funeral has increased by 130%* over the last 15 years, by purchasing a Funeral Plan you will lock the cost of the Funeral Director’s services in your plan at today’s price.
We offer a wide range of extras which can be added to your plan to ensure that your funeral is a true reflection of you and a celebration of your life.
One of the main reasons for buying a pre-paid funeral plan is to have peace of mind that the financial burden of paying for your funeral will not pass to your loved ones. So you want to know that the money you have paid into your plan is safe and will be there when it is needed.
No matter how you paid for your plan, either by a lump sum or monthly instalments, monies for the fulfilment of your plan are paid into a secure Trust Fund that is completely independent. A panel of Independent Trustees manage the funds to ensure long-term growth in accordance with the current legislations as set out in the Regulated Activities Order (Financial Services and Markets Act 2000), under Article 60.
Signature Funerals offer families choices which will enable them to create a personalised and tailored service reflective of the person who has died, whether that’s a service which is positive for the environment, a lively celebration of life, or a more formal, traditional approach.
