More and more people are choosing to pre-arrange their funeral to reduce the emotional worry and anxiety from their family.

With a Funeral Plan from Ecclesiastical (arranged through ourselves), you can pre-arrange your funeral. Once your plan is in place, as long as we carry out your funeral and your requirements don’t change, it covers our costs, no matter how long you live or what happens to the economy in the meantime. This can help reduce the financial burden on your loved ones.
The plan can also include a contribution towards third party costs (known as disbursements), such as crematorium, clergy and doctor’s fees. These costs are outside of our control and cannot be guaranteed.

A pre-paid funeral plan also allows you to set out your wishes in advance so your family don’t have to second guess what you might have wanted. 

About our pre-paid funeral plans

Planning ahead for your funeral is one of the most thoughtful and caring things you can do. Some people never get round to discussing funeral wishes with their loved ones, which can lead to all sorts of worry and anxiety when the time comes.

Taking out a funeral plan is a simple and straightforward way to remove this worry, and it can provide real financial benefits too. Some of the other benefits include:

        Pre-arrange the details of your funeral and include any special wishes

        Make financial provision for your funeral

        Choose your funeral director in advance

        Ensure your family has access to expert help and advice at a difficult time

What’s more, there are no complicated medical forms to complete.

Our plans cover our costs (as specified in the plan paperwork) as long as we carry out the funeral and your requirements don’t change. You can also make a contribution towards third party costs, such as the cremation fees. These costs are outside of our control.
