What is the cost of a Funeral Plan?
Pre-paid funeral plans start from £2,390. You can pay for your funeral plan in full or monthly starting from £19.19. Funeral director’s fees and services are guaranteed (nothing further to pay towards them).
Studies have shown that funeral costs are rising considerably year on year. Over the past nine years the price of an average funeral has risen by six per cent each year. This means that in 2000 the cost of a funeral was around £1,500 to £2,000 – but it has now inflated to almost £6,000 in some places.
Funeral director’s fees and services are guaranteed with all our funeral plans (nothing further to pay towards them). They are:
24 hour collection (within 25 miles*), and transfer to funeral home/chapel of rest.
Provision of a standard, veneered coffin with nameplate.
Care and preparation.
Chapel of rest viewing.
Consultation with the family regarding the funeral arrangements (time, date, location of funeral, etc).
Organising and conducting the funeral, including funeral procession.
Provision of a hearse and bearers.
Provision of following limousine(s) (depending on the plan you choose).
* Mileage over 25 miles will be charged at the funeral director's rate at the time of need.
Why Choose a Funeral Plan?
PEACE OF MIND
Choosing a Funeral Plan is one of the most effective and affordable methods by which to protect your family and loved ones against the burden of rising funeral costs, and spare them the distress of having to make difficult decisions as to what your particular preferences for your funeral might be.
We provide a comprehensive range of options to suit all tastes and budgets. Most can be tailored to suit particular preferences, from the big things - like whether you want to be cremated or buried - to the smaller things - like your choice of music and flowers. Also, with the exception of the Direct Cremation, all can be personalised, meaning they can be adapted to include any specific features or elements particular to you, but which perhaps aren't included as standard (additional costs may apply).
As one of the UK's premier funeral plan providers, it is of paramount importance to us that our customers' investments are safe and secure. In common with all funeral plan companies, the money you pay towards your Safe Hands Funeral Plan is held in a secure ring-fenced Trust Fund (via Pitmans Trustees Limited). Set up in conjunction with specialist Trust Solicitors, the fund is independently managed by multinational investment bank UBS.
QUALITY OF SERVICE
As you'd expect from one of the UK's leading funeral plan providers, we take customer service very seriously.
We are acknowledged to be one of the UK's most affordable prepaid funeral plan providers. If you don't wish to pay for your plan in full straight away, we also offer a range of monthly instalment terms covering 12, 24, 36, 60 or 120 months (plans paid for over 12 or 24 months carry no instalment handling charge).
We offer what we call an 'Either/Or' option - allowing a single plan to be 'shared' between two people, meaning the benefit of the plan can be utilised at either the first death, or at the second

Rising Funeral Costs
With funeral costs rising in excess of the annual rate of inflation, it is an unfortunate fact, that for many families, budgeting for a funeral by traditional means may no longer be enough to cover the costs.
According to the Bank of England, the current rate of inflation is 2.1%. By comparison, according to the Sun Life Cost of Dying Report 2018, the average cost of a basic funeral rose from £4,078 in 2017 to £4,271 in 2018 - an increase of 4.7%. This means that over the last year, average basic funeral costs have risen well in excess of inflation.
Take out a Funeral Plan today and take peace of mind from knowing, that no matter how long you live and/or however much the funeral director's fees and services may be when you pass away, the loved ones you leave behind will not have anything further to pay towards them.
