Funeral Plans from 4 Probate & Wills
A pre-paid funeral plan is an easy way to plan ahead and beat rising funeral costs, helping to save your family worry and expense. You simply choose the funeral plan you want and pre-pay for the cost of your funeral director’s services, at today’s prices.
Funeral costs in the UK are rising every year. According to the 2017 'Cost of Dying Report' the average cost of a funeral in 2004 was £1,920, in 2018 it is £4,078. That's an increase of 112% - well above inflation. Projected costs could be more than £7,000 in 10 years’ time. A funeral plan offers an easy way to pay for your funeral director's service at a cost that's fixed at current prices.
With a funeral plan in place you fix the cost of the funeral director’s services in your plan at today’s prices. So no matter how much the cost of these services rise in the future, your family will have nothing more to pay for these services – guaranteed (once your plan is paid in full).
Choose the perfect plan
We have a number of Funeral Plans to choose from so you can pick the one that best suits your needs. Whichever plan you choose, they all cover the funeral director’s own services included in the plan for either a cremation or burial.
All our plans include:
Provision of Funeral Directors services to make funeral arrangements
Arranging funeral service (at local cemetery, churchyard, graveyard or crematorium)
Caring for the deceased including private chapel of rest (Embalming not included)
Hearse and personnel required for the funeral
Advice on all matters related to the funeral
Visit to the chapel of rest during office hours
24-hour transfer of deceased to a suitable resting place within the UK (within a 50 mile radius)
Bereavement assistance via professional organisations
Burial or interment fee (single), gravedigger fee where applicable, fee for a church service and Minister or Officiant’s fees to conduct a service at a local cemetery chapel or church or at the graveside
Each one provides a different level of service while covering every essential, and allows you to add your own personal touches. Whether you choose Simple, Bronze, Silver or Gold, there are no hidden extras: the price you see is the price you pay.
You can purchase one of our Burial Plans for yourself, or for a relative, friend or dependant.
A Set Burial Plan cannot be changed or added to, but you can upgrade it at a later date if you wish.
All of our Burial Plans are completely flexible, so if you move house at a later date, your Plan can still be delivered no matter where you live. We have access to over 1,000 funeral homes in the UK, allowing you to change your nominated Funeral Director at no extra cost.
The cost of the grave plot is not included in the Set Burial Plan
