Questions our customers ask

With our funeral plan, you pay for your funeral in advance, at current prices. You can choose to pay us in one Single Payment, Fixed Term Payments or Continuous Payments. Once arranged, your costs are fixed and you do not need to pay anything else – there are no hidden costs. Other providers offer an array of services, including cremation, transportation, and much more we suggest that you review their small print for any hidden costs as you may pay more than their published prices depending on your circumstances. See how we compare to the rest.

Our prepaid Funeral Plan has the option to pay either as a one-off Single Payment, by Fixed Term monthly instalments over 6-60 months, or if you are aged 50-74 you can choose Continuous Payments.

Yes, but we suggest that you let them know as they could go and buy one for themselves if they don’t know they already have a plan. Many people make arrangements on behalf of their parents or partners. When buying a plan, you will need to specify who the plan is for, and it is best to list yourself as the representative for that plan.

Over 50s life insurance is a whole-of-life policy that pays a cash lump sum to beneficiaries upon your death. A prepaid funeral plan, however, is an agreement with a funeral plan provider to fund and organise funeral expenses according to your specific wishes. They offer greater control and peace of mind regarding funeral arrangements, ensuring your life is celebrated the way you want.

The cost of funeral plans in the UK varies based on plan type, service levels, and location. Notably, direct cremation plans are a cost-effective choice, providing a budget-friendly alternative to traditional funerals. Payment methods, like lump sums or monthly instalments, and inflation protection impact the overall cost.

A Pure Cremation plan, however, offers hassle-free direct cremation with transparent pricing. Covering mainland England, Wales and Scotland, including the Isle of Wight and Isle of Skye, our plans eliminate hidden and additional fees. Secure today's prices to shield against rising funeral costs and inflation.
