What is a Funeral Plan? 
 
Funeral costs are rising every year and if you are planning Wills why not plan for your funeral expenses too. 
 
 

 What is a Funeral Plan? Funeral costs are rising every year and if you are planning Wills why not plan for your funeral expenses too. 

Within your Will you can account for funeral costs to come out of your estate which obviously reduces the amount that can be passed on to loved ones. As funeral costs are rising the amount that will be reduced from your estate increases year on year. 
 
Money paid into a funeral plan is invested securely in a ring-fenced trust fund, and is overseen and managed by an independent panel of qualified Trustees. 
 
A pre-paid funeral plan allows you to fix the cost of a future funeral at today’s prices. With plans in place, not only is it guaranteed that your funeral will be conducted by a professional, qualified, funeral director, but you also spare your loved ones from having to make many difficult and unpleasant decisions. 
 
Simply put, a funeral plan is an inflation proof way of having the funeral that you want at no cost to your loved ones.

All of the above plans can be adapted for cremation or burial. However, because burial costs vary considerably across different local authority areas, only once we know where you wish to be interred can we provide you with a fixed price. For more information, advice or a quick quote call 07825 331447. 
 
Your Safe Hands funeral plan can also be changed or upgraded at any time, and should you move home, it is transferable to any area within the UK at no extra charge. 
 
Safe Hands operates in partnership with a national network of NFFD (National Federation of Funeral Directors) approved funeral directors, most of whom have been providing first class funeral services within their communities for generations.
